About this collection

The collection “Vinyl Discs: Songs and Political Speeches” contains over 50 items that came through donations from private individuals and organizations and through exchanges with other collectors across Spain and abroad. From a historical standpoint, the collection offers an important, little-known source for the study of political, economic, social and cultural events that have taken place in Catalonia, Spain and the wider world over the course of the twentieth century. Brought together are a large number of songs from the Spanish Civil War (Chants de la Guerre d’Espagne) and the anti-fascist resistance (Un peuple en lutte) as well as anthems (Els Segadors, the Internationale), election propaganda (PSOE, UCD, etc.) and political speeches (Francesc Macià, Josep Tarradellas, Franco, Lenin, Kennedy, Fidel Castro, etc.). The online collection includes a selection of vinyl discs from the major sound archive of the Pavelló de la República CRAI Library, which also contains other sorts of recorded material on cassettes, compact discs and sound reels that are yet to be processed.
