Released in 1966 and featuring live performances in Boston and New York City from late 1965 and early 1966—plus a few studio recordings substituted due to flaws in the live tapes—In Concert marks a turning point in Phil Ochs' career. It'd be his last album to feature only acoustic guitar and vocals. His future releases (starting with 1967's Pleasures of the Harbor) would include orchestration and elements of art songs, highlighting that Ochs was an able composer as well as a smart, topical lyricist. While In Concert has several of Ochs' most pointed political anthems—from the perky college-student protest of "I'm Going to Say It Now" to the working-class dream of "Ringing of Revolution" and the U.S. imperialism of "Cops of the World"—the album's most poignant moments are the ones most universal in tone. "There but for Fortune," a minor hit for Joan Baez, is more philosophical than polemical. "Changes," one of Ochs' most popular compositions, is an actual love song, while "When I'm Gone" is a prescient vision of Ochs' short life and the continuous need for social justice.
