Ho Chi Minh (1890–1969) led the fight for Vietnamese independence from 1941 until his death in 1969. This 1976 recording, produced by folk singer and political activist Barbara Dane, was issued a year after the fall of South Vietnam. The recording presents Ho Chi Minh through his writings and in songs praising his revolutionary zeal. Many of the speeches are presented in English by Vu Thien Dinh with two brief speeches by Ho in English. Two songs on the recording were written by Cubans and sung in Spanish.
The liner notes provide background information about Ho Chi Minh and the English text for his speeches and writings.
