Probably my favourite version of this song, and yet I couldn't even find it on YouTube.

On the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Red Army (23 February 1918) I decided to make a compilation of the songs of the Russian labor movement before the October Revolution. Songs from the 19th century and the Revolution of 1905 are included. The last song "Provodi" (or Bolshevik Leaves Home) is the only post-revolutionary song in this list - it was created in early 1918, around the time the first drafting of units into the Red Army took place. 0:00 The Internationale 3:57...

Singer: "Teodor Kalnin" Choir ("Teodora Kalniņa" Koris), Latvian SSR State Symphony Orchestra (Latvijas PSR Valsts Simfoniskais Orķestris) Year recorded: 1980 Lyricist: Fricis Rokpelnis and Jūlijs Vanags (original Latvian), Pēteris...
