  •  Robeson's interpretation of the Soviet Anthem (6+ / 0-)

    In what I believe is his own translation, which beats the pants off the official English translation ;-)

    (Disclaimer: I don't condone what this anthem stands for. It expresses a beautiful sentiment in sharp contrast with the ugly and brutal reality it conceals. I post this as a historic document. I believe that Paul Robeson made this recording because he found the ideas expressed in this anthem worth engaging with.)
