The Ballads of Sacco and Vanzetti CD

The Ballads of Sacco and Vanzetti CD


Artist: Woody Guthrie

Guthrie sings the story of the anarchists who were tried and convicted of murder, then executed in Boston in the 1920s. Written by Guthrie during 1946-47, the powerful songs of this well-known affair reaffirm the value of the struggle for freedom and dramatically describe the price often paid. Extensive notes contain a previously unpublished letter written by Guthrie.
