I've been collecting songs about Stalin in Georgian and I've managed to get my hands on three different songs from three different shellac records dated from 1936 to 1939. Unfortunately all three of these songs had the same title, "Song About Stalin", so there's no real way to differentiate between them. The quality isn't that great, but I hope I've cleaned up the audio enough for them to still be enjoyable. 0:00 სიმღერა სტალინზე #1 (Song About Stalin #1)...

The record this came from broke into three pieces in the mail, so I sent it to a specialist to recover as much of the audio as possible. It was maybe about 90% recovered and I managed to fix most of the rest, but, as you can hear, the third stanza and last line of the song have some noticeable clicking. The other side of the record has the Latvian language version of this song. Here's hoping that it can be recovered too. Singer: Radio Committee Chorus and Symphony Orchestra of the Latvian SSR...

I originally posted an older recording of this song as part of a compilation, but YouTube took it down because the image I used for the video suggested that neo-Nazis perform acts of self-harm. Take that as you will. Since then, that version of the song has been reuploaded elsewhere on YouTube and I figured I might as well post a newer version I've found, along with a better translation and an image that hopefully won't incur the wrath of YouTube.

The majority of these songs were digitised by me personally from multiple Soviet records, so a large number of them may not be anywhere else on the internet.

An hour of communist music in the Uyghur language, the first half from the Chinese Uyghurs and the second half from the Soviet Uyghurs. As you'll notice, the Uyghurs in China write their language using the Arabic script while Uyghurs in the Soviet Union and now in post-Soviet states tend to use the Cyrillic script instead.
