Palestine Lives!: Songs from the Struggle of the People of Palestine

“What you hear on this record is an echo—the echo of a very important phase in the long struggle of the people of Palestine.” So writes Kamal Boullata in the liner notes to this 1974 recording, spoken (in English) and sung (in classical and colloquial Arabic) by members of the Palestinian Liberation Movement following the Six-Day War of 1967. The liner notes contain a history of the Palestinian people, background on the singers and the genesis of the songs, lyrics in Arabic and English, several of Boullata’s line drawings, and a glossary.
