Epitaph For A Legend

Originally released on the International Artists label, "Epitaph For A Legend" could be seen either as a "Greatest Hits"-type sampler, or as a quick cash grab release. However, I see it as a great piece of history documenting this seminal Texas record label. Although it is missing tracks by such bands as The Golden Dawn and Endle St. Cloud, it is a fairly complete representation of the output of the label. It has, however, been rendered sorta useless with the release of the 3CD set, "Never Ever Land".
