Description:
This recording of "Whirlwinds of Danger" was distributed with "Lansbury's Labour Weekly" (1925-1927). It was sung by John Goss under the pseudonym "Rufus John". The song is based on lyrics written in Polish in 1879 by Waclaw Swiecicki, imprisoned at that time in Warsaw for Socialist activities. The song was later sung by Polish workers during the 1905 Russian Revolution and after this was adopted by the international labour movement.
