A collection of songs and a poem about the many Scots who volunteered to fight in Spain against General Franco and the fascists.
The Scots volunteers fought mainly with The International Brigade which included, as the name suggests, volunteers from many other countries of the world.
Some tracks were recorded specially for this album and others were licensed from other companies and individuals.
"This is no ordinary CD you hold in your hands. This is history, tribute and - as you will hear - love, affection, defiance and most importantly solidarity between Scotland and Spain, and in memory of the contribution of the International Brigades defending Spain from fascism. Scots more than played their part in this noble struggle." Cllr. Gordon Munro, Leith Ward Labour.
"When Spain called, Scotland answered. Well over 500 Scottish men and women served in the Spanish Civil War. A third of them remain in the country, sleeping beneath the soil they volunteered to fend from fascism. As the last of that golden red generation dies away, our job is to remember, commemorate and oppose prejudice today. This album is then a souvenir, to be enjoyed and a clarion call to be heeded." Daniel Gray, author of Homage To Caledonia, published by Luath Press.
