6 Songs for Democracy: Discos de las Brigadas Internacionales

Robeson, Paul

New York

The Music Room [Keynote Recordings, Inc.]

c. 1940


Three 10-inch 78 rpm records housed in card sleeves, cloth backed illustrated boards. Lacking the booklet. Inscribed and signed by Robeson on the inside of the front board thus: "These songs of the Spanish struggle Deeply reflect the spirit of Democracy. That spirit like Joe Hill 'never died,' This album is a 'must.'".

Though by general consensus, the inscription is generic, still an interesting piece.

Donated by Kenneth Mallory, Decatur, GA.

Lot Amendments

Front joint split, bottom edge of front board worn, records in fine condition
