Subject: Index: People's Songs Bulletin, 1946-1949
From: Joe Offer
Date: 16 Oct 13 - 07:08 PM

Anybody have issues of the People's Songs Bulletin or newsletter?

I have three songbooks published from the songs published by People's Songs: I don't think there were other songbooks. I don't think these three books encompass all the songs published in the quarterly Bulletin from 1946 through 1949. In the Reprints book, Irwin Silber says there were 319 songs printed in the Bulletin over its history.

Sing Out! (click) is in the process of digitizing the entire three-year run of The People's Songs Bulletin, but the project isn't complete. I'd like to use this thread to index all the issues of the Bulletin that we can find.

    Note: this is an edited PermaThread, intended to index all the songs in the People's Songs Bulletin which was published in New York 1946-1949. Feel free to post to this thread, but be aware that your post may be edited or deleted.

Excellent work, Joe. Thanks very much.

Jon Bartlett
    Thanks, Jon. I'm glad that Geoff Lawes gave me a reason to post this stuff, and that Bob Nelson gave me a year's worth of this wonderful resource. I hope that Sing Out! is able to post the entire three-year run of the People's Songs Bulletin.
    I've marked the issues that I have in my possession. If anybody wants any of those songs, I'll be glad to post them.

Joe Thank you for all your hard work. I notice that the song Beloved Comrade appeared in the People's Songbook 1948 and also in Volume 1, No. 12, January 1947 of the People's Songs Bulletin. I previously investigated this song in a Mudcat thread called Origins; Beloved Comrade. Spanish Civil War Song?
HERE
In that thread Robert Meeropol ,son of Abel Meerpol, who wrote the lyrics for Beloved Comrade, says that the song was written for the death of Franklin Roosevelt. Is there anything in the People's Songs material which adds any clarification?
Regards, Geoff
    I'll answer in the other thread, Geoff. Give me an hour.
    -Joe-
