Songs of the Spanish Civil War, Volumes 1 & 2

Songs of the Spanish Civil War, Volumes 1 & 2

Various Artists SFW40188

Songs of the Spanish Civil War rekindles the hymnal of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, more than 2,600 American volunteers who fought General Francisco Franco and his fellow fascists from Italy and Nazi Germany to defend the popularly elected Spanish Republic during the 1936-1939 conflict. These songs, recorded around the time of the war’s end and later reissued in the 1960s by Folkways Records, still inspire supporters of democratic causes around the world. Singers include Pete Seeger, Tom Glazer, Butch and Bess Hawes, Woody Guthrie, Ernst Busch, and Bart van der Schelling. Notes by Peter Glazer. 63 minutes, 40-page booklet.

Reissue with new notes of FW05436 and FW05437.
