Thread Name: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
Subject: RE: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
Lately I am reading old posts that I remarked in many years ago. I am surprised how often I would post differently and how often I wouldn't.
In the years I have been away or posted very little my mind has changed some. As far as this post goes I haven't changed my mind.
Phil Ochs, Malvina Reynolds and Tom Paxton.
But I am also going to say that early on we only considered English language music. In my case, since I am not bi-ligual, I have no other experience. Were there Cuban protest singers? Iranian? Chilean? Pakistani? Other people, with voices, in peril?
I wish I knew.
