[Lhasa]: Xizang Da Lianzhi 121 Gelian, [1967-68]. Approx. 11" x 8", pp. [62]; tan paper wrappers, crudely sewn at spine; a mimeographed songbook of Chinese Revolutionary songs, duplicated by mimeograph from at least four separate hands, in two colors, and with eclectic pagination, suggesting that this volume was cobbled together from multiple sources. The songs are a collection of both Red Guard standards and materials focused on local interests, such as Xizang Hao, or Tibet is Good. The music is notated using numbered musical notation, or jianpu. The publishers, Da Lianzhi, were one faction among many in China's Red Guard. They operated primarily in Lhasa, and were comprised primarily of foreign Han party members. Red Guard factions were often centered around the personalities of their leadership, and competed for regional influence. The Da Lianzi therefore often clashed with other Red Guard groups, including factions that drew from native Tibetan communist sympathizers. Eventually such competition became violent, and in 1968 the People's Liberation Army forcibly suppressed the Red Guards and recentralized control. Item #49932
