CD Reviews

Awesome 70's Rock and Roll
V-Man | Daytona Beach | 03/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I still have this album on the vinyl disc that I bought back in college in 1974. Now I am finally going to order it on cd. Thats how good it is! I have searched all over for a copy and finally found it here. It truly is classic rock and roll from an age that defined real rock. The guitar work is powerful and engaging, you will be playing air guitar along with the songs in no time. For those longing for the days of honest, hard driving, kickin' rock and roll, BUY THIS ALBUM!"
Lost and Found

"Epitaph's "Outside the Law" is one of the most profound rock albums of its time. I first ran across this album in 1977 under the Billigsgate label. The guitar work is phenominal. The title track is truly unmatched by the groups later works and its masterful guitar rifts can transport the listener literally Outside the Law! The some tracks on this album reveal an almost German Beatles aura. It is surprising that tunes like "Woman" and "Big City" never made US airplay. I highly recommend this album to anyone who is still stuck in the late 60's and early 70's or desires to be."
A Lost Classic Returns!!!

"Arguably the best Epitaph album, it's great to finally see this one made available on CD again!!! Every track here is a standout, featuring the powerful and brilliant dual harmony lead guitar attack of guitarists Cliff Jackson and Klaus Walz. Unfortunately, despite their immense talent and strong material, major success eluded Epitaph at every turn, owing to bad record deals and mismanagement, which were to eventually become their undoing. The small, Chicago-based label Billingsgate, which issued "Outside The Law" in late 1974, went bankrupt shortly after it's release; fearing possible responsibility for Billingsgate's debts, Epitaph were forced to disband for a while, regrouping again once the legal tangles with the label were sorted out. My favorite tracks on this album are "Reflexion", "In Your Eyes", "Big City", and the best track, "Fresh Air". I highly recommend this CD!!!"
