The Collector's Paul Robeson

While well known as a political activist and actor, Paul Robeson the singer also had a commanding presence, achieved through the quality of his baritone and the feeling he brought to the songs he chose to sing. This collection represents a true cross-section of his repertoire: folk songs, work songs, spirituals, and art songs, from Dvorak to "Joe Hill," "Stand Still Jordan" to "Kaddish."
