There but for Fortune

There But for Fortune was a 1989 compilation that summed up the three albums that Phil Ochs recorded for Elektra Records between 1964 and 1966. Drawing heavily from the third, presenting ten of its eleven tracks, and presenting six and five respectively from the first and second, it summed up Ochs' folkie days in one succinct swoop.

The compact disc edition omits three tracks, two from the first album and one from the second. Both editions lop off a few introductions on the "In Concert" album.

A cover version of "There But For Fortune" by Joan Baez became a top-ten hit in the UK in 1965. Somewhat irritated by her greater success with the song, Ochs sometimes introduced it as "by Joan Baez" in his live performances.
