(November 9, 2018): Paul Robeson – Ballad For Americans

All four parts from the 1940 2×10″ 78 rpm discs, Ballad For Americans. For many, like me, born at the tail end of the post WWII baby boom, this collection represented what America was all about.  For those, like me, who view President Trump as a moral and political calamity (and that’s being generous) – see here, Bummed Out About Trump – Robeson knows we will get over his disgraceful Presidency.  Music by Earl Robinson. Words by John Latouch. Nat Shilkret conducting.
