The Unofficial Phil Ochs Setlist Archive


Welcome to my new Phil Ochs’ setlist archive.   This project is nowhere near complete, in fact, I started doing it just to reference setlists for those who are interested in trading.  However, I decided that I might as well keep adding on to it, for there is no definitive Ochs’ archive on the web.  Please e-mail me if you have any suggestions for improvements, or if you have a setlist that you’d like me to add (whether you have it or not, I’ll hopefully find it for you).  Please enjoy this site!  I certainly hope that it continues growing.

Note: This tracklisting is more accurate than the other setlist circulating on the internet.

Note: “Toward the end, it was often difficult to get Phil Ochs in front of a microphone. Here, captured for posterity, is an exception, an impromptu-sounding set at Gerde's Folk City in which Phil offers a few crowd-pleasers but prefers to go back to remembered folk songs and numbers written by the country legends he admired, such as Johnny Cash and Hank Williams. (You might note a faint similarity in the chord changes of the Johnny Cash "Give My Love To Rose, Please Won't You Mister" and "Fill It Up with Ethel, Won't You Mister" from Phil's "Gas Station Women.") "Blue and the Gray" and "Jimmy Brown the Newsboy" were two songs that Phil also sang at a pre-"Rolling Thunder" nightclub party in the Village that Bob Dylan attended.  The track list is approximate since Phil sometimes combines tunes or only sings parts of songs.” (Text taken from


Thanks very much to William Curtis for helping with the setlist discrepancies.
