AllMusic Review by

A good survey of some of Morricone's more notable movie themes, spanning the mid-'60s to the mid-'80s. Includes some of his most famous work (from The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly, The Mission, The Battle of Algiers, Once Upon a Time in the West, and Sacco and Vanzetti), as well as more obscure items like a 1971 BBC TV program. Anthology has superseded this as the most in-depth retrospective, but this doesn't repeat many of the tracks from that compilation, making for a worthwhile supplement.
