Scope and Content Note

6 Songs For Democracy: Discos De Las Brigadas Internacionales. Released by Keynote Recordings, Inc., New York. "Here are songs recorded during heavy bombardment, by men who were themselves fighting for the 'Rights of Man'. Valiant and heroic was the part played by the International Brigade in the glorious struggle of the Spanish Republic. I was there in the course of that struggle and my faith in man--in the eventual attaining of his freedom--was strengthened a thousand fold. This album helps sustain that faith. It's a necessity." - Paul Robeson, July 4, 1940 [copied verbatim from liner notes]. Disc labels read: "originals made in Barcelona, Spain, 1938 - U. S. copyright reserved" (3 discs)
