An Excellent Introduction.

This is, as suggested, is an excellent introduction to The Enid, and gives the new listener as glimpse into their legacy - which sadly, so many simply do not know about. It takes tracks from (I think), each of The Enid's dozen or so albums between 1977 & 2008.

Nevertheless, for a first taste, this is ideal. But once you have tasted this, makes sure you go on and have the full meal. You will not be disappointed.
