EDITORS’ NOTES

As a definitive metal band of the '90s, Pantera starts its Complete Collection with 1990’s Cowboys from Hell and follows through with 1992’s Vulgar Display of Power, 1994’s Far from Driven, 1996’s The Great Southern Trendkill, and 2000’s Reinventing the Steel. This Collection is completed with the 1997 live album Official Live: 101 Proof. Of course, hardcore fans will note the decision to omit 1988’s Power Metal album, which—unlike the three albums before it (Metal Magic, Projects in the Jungle, and I Am the Night)—at least sounded like the group Pantera became on these later studio albums. But Cowboys from Hell was the album on which Diamond Darrell became Dimebag Darrell and Phil Anselmo unquestionably found his voice. Like other official collections, Pantera’s Complete Collection features the original albums and nothing more. No bonus tracks, no b-sides, no rarities: just the original studio albums as they were meant to be.
