Christiane Oriol ‎- La Mine, Cris et Chants 12'' LP (1980)















An album of French coal miners' songs, some dating back to the 19th century, published in 1980 by the trade union CGT. On the same topic, and if you understand French, I can only recommend this excellent documentary by Jean-Luc Raynaud: "L'honneur des Gueules Noires" (2012). But if French proves too much of a challenge, there's always Barbara Kopple's amazing "Harlan County USA" (1976), which also includes a few protest songs.
