¡Viva España!

A drunk-sounding Peacock Band playing accordions, bones, and mouth organs in a pub in Chelsworth, Suffolk the early 1970s.

Here. More titbits from the (British) National Sound Archive’s collection: an East London priest who went to college in Spain between wars, interview with Ted Smallbone, a Civil War volunteer from Birmingham, in the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust collection, the extraordinary story of Miriam Stanton’s travels in the 1930s and 1940s. Unfortunately late 1920s recordings of the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, one with Casals and Thibaud, are unavailable to expats.
