5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps Alive the Spirit of Justice and Freedom August 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
(written by Jim Jump) As the son of a British International Brigade veteran and a Spanish Republican refugee,I grew up with the pain of betrayal, defeat, and exile. Songs helped to sustain us during the long dark years of Franco's dictatorship. This record captures the emotion, joy, and beauty of many of those songs, as well as some new ones, and keeps alive the spirit which took thousands of volunteers from around the world to fight for justice and freedom in Spain.

3.0 out of 5 stars La música bien, la letra no tanto May 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Como hijo de exiliado español agradezco con el corazón que la música de la Guerra Civil Española siga viva dentro del canto del siglo XXI. Musicalmente me parece un trabajo muy completo, con conocimiento y aventura musicales, sin embargo, en lo que se refiere a las letras (lyrics) encuentro el punto débil del CD. Por lo que he podido investigar los textos utilizados son los llegados a los Estados Unidos, pero no los que se cantaban en España y, en ocasiones, la continuidad de las letras es inconexa.

Pongo un ejemplo: Joel & Jamaica Rafael cantan: 'Los cuatro generales, mamita mía, que se han alzado' y en seguida: 'Madrid que bien resistes, mamita mía, los bombardeos'. Esto, en el idioma español no tiene sentido. La letra original dice: 'Los cuatro generales, mamita mía, que se han alzado, para las navidades serán colgados' y la segunda parte: 'Madrid que bien resistes, mamita, los bombardeos, de las bombas se ríen, mamita mía, los madrileños' y de esta forma adquieren sentido pues a los cuatro generales alzados les espera la horca, mientras los madrileños resisten los bombardeos de las tropas franquistas.

Uxía, siendo española, llama 'Marineros' a la canción cuyo título original es 'Que será' y que viene de la canción infantil 'Arrión' y que ironiza sobre el hundimiento del crucero 'Baleares' por la Flota Republicana en la batalla del Cabo de Palos y Uxía no utiliza la letra que dice: 'Y han de ver, y lo van a ver como al 'Baleares', al 'Cervera' y 'Canarias' bajo los mares' lo que le daría el contexto del momento en que la canción surgió.

5.0 out of 5 stars No pasaran! January 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These stirring songs from the noble fight against Franco's facism are still important today. Sung in Spanish, English, or both, these songs honor the Fifteenth International Brigade and their brave allies and celebrate the spirit of freedom. The same struggle continues today in places like Chiapas. La Lucha continua.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music of a lost Cause January 3, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great historical array of freedom fighters by their music. The songs are fantastic to a lost cause of long ago.
The music makes you proud of the American Volunteers.
