The Power & the Glory
About the Song
Ochs recorded this song on his debut 1964 "All the News That's Fit to Sing" album on Elektra Records.
The 5th recording is from the 2016 Phil Ochs Song Night at the Linda in Albany, New York.
This database curator was shocked to discover that anti-gay rights activist Anita Bryant had included the song on an album of patriotic songs alongside such classics as "Onward Christian Soldiers" & "God Bless America". Did/does she know who Phil Ochs was??? (included here for historical, and perhaps humorous, purposes only!)
