I have started a separate Mudcat thread called " 3 New Guthrie songs of Spanish Civil War " which has a link to a report that Will Kauffman has found 3 previously "unheard" songs written by Woodie Guthrie about the Spanish Civil War.


LINK to Mudcat thread " 3 New Guthrie songs of Spanish Civil War "

If anyone knows anything more about these songs will you please post the information on this thread as well?

Will Kauffman kindly replied to an email about these songs and says "The titles I’ve got that are explicitly targeted at Franco or that reference him in passing are:

Break with Franco
Spanish Rebel
Stop Franco
Curses for Franco Talking Lost Love Blues
Enda Franco’s Line
Screwball Cannonball

Thanks Will.

Does anyone have any more information/lrics/links about these songs?

I have just received news of a new song written about the sinking of the ship Ciudad de Barcelona in 1937. I have no detailed information to pass on about the song itself but there is a 20 second sound clip available using this link. https://chuffed.org/project/solidarity-park   The link will take you to a site where it is possible to download the whole song in exchange for a donation towards the establishment of a new memorial devoted to the brigadistas who were drowned when the ship was sunk off the coast of Catalonia while bringing over 300 volunteer fighters to defend the Spanish Republic against fascism in 1937. the site displays photographs of the proposed memorial which is based upon reports of the brigadistas singing The Internationale as the boat sank.

In the latest newsletter of the International Brigade Memorial Trust came news of two new songs dedicated to British international brigaders John Longstaff and Bob Cooney. These songs appear on the new album by The Young'uns, entitled 'Strangers', which is to be released on 29 September.

The song 'Cable Street' is about John Longstaff, a Tees-sider who took part in the anti-fascist Battle of Cable Street in London in 1936 before going to Spain. 'Bob Cooney's Miracle' tells a story about Aberdeen International Brigader Bob Cooney's time in Spain.

The album can be pre-ordered here:http://smarturl.it/ox0wmn

Does anyone know ALL the words to Old Potato Jones, a 1937 music-hall song by Leslie Sarony & performed here by the Two Leslies? I have them all except the penultimate line of the last chorus. "The spuds have all got off............... He's a grand old man of the sea. David Potato Jones was a Cape Horner, became a captain and was involved in running the blockade of the Basque ports during the SCW.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAyRpOblaok
