It's Songs of Free Men, though, that will just keep Robeson's artistry rolling along, especially in Sony's astonishing transfers. Exclusive discount for Prime members. During World War II Robeson recorded the original Songs of Freemen. I believe there were eight songs in this album. I well remember them from my early childhood, and they inspired attitudes which have lasted more than fifty years. I suppose they can't have the same meaning for the present generation, but they are certainly worth a listen. Some of these are very different from what you may have come to expect from Robeson. The spirituals and more usual Robeson pieces have been added to fill out the CD. Even so, they are some of his best.

Paul Robeson Sings Spirituals, Folksongs and Hymns. feat: Lawrence Brown. 5. Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho.
Paul Robeson – vocals Alan Booth – piano Brownie McGhee – guitar (A1) Sonny Terry – harmonica (A1) Lawrence Brown – vocals, piano (A5). The tunes and the beats of negro spirituals and Gospel songs are highly influenced by the music of their actual cultural environment. It means that their styles are continuously changing. The very first negro spirituals were inspired by African music even if the tunes were not far from those of hymns. Some of them, which were called "shouts" were accompanied with typical dancing including hand clapping and foot tapping.
