AllMusic Review by

Although best known for Western themes that evoke the open spaces and existential emptiness of the frontier, master film composer Ennio Morricone has many other tricks up his sleeve, as evidenced on this stunning 1971 soundtrack for the film SACCO E VENZETTI. Both folkier and more traditionally orchestral than his trademark scores, SACCO is nevertheless unmistakably Morricone, with its stark melodies and imaginative instrumentation. Additionally, Joan Baez lends her beautiful voice to the haunting "Ballad of Sacco & Vanzetti."
