Tales of Taliesin is the complementary set to the Out-Bloody-Rageous Anthology. Tales of Taliesin starts where Out-Bloody-Rageous stopped: the years with the electric guitars, the more recent Machine until it stopped. It is a good collection of tracks, well written liner notes from Sid Smith. Most pictures arenít new and Brand Xís John Giblin seemed to had an extreme turnover since heís named as Steve Cook in the booklet.
