Jack & Amanda Palmer – In The Heat of The Summer (Phil Ochs)

this cover (originally by Phil Ochs) was included on the folk-y covers album i made with my dad, Jack Palmer: “You Got Me Singing”.
the song was originally written after the harlem riots of 1964. my dad, who also re-wrote a few of the lyrics to the song, wrote a bit about it on Medium here: http://bit.ly/2aZYFDv

…and the complete lyrics are on the project page: https://amandapalmer.net/intheheatofth…

...i borrowed the above phrase from my friend maria popova's blog (http://www.brainpickings.org - it's awesome)...i think the phrase pretty much explains itself. i put a lot of time and effort into this blog and want you to have it and read it for free. if you want to give me some help for the time and effort, THANK YOU. you can either kick me back directly through paypal using the button below, or if you want to take some MUSIC TOO (even better, yay!) go to the store section and kick me back through paying what you want for an album or a song.
