Epitaph Album Discography
by Mike Callahan and David Edwards
Last update: December 15, 2006

The Epitaph label was an early 1970s subsidiary of Vee-Jay International Records. It was a somewhat somber series, devoted to deceased jazzmen. The album covers were all black and white. The covers had the Epitaph logos, but the label inside was the standard Vee-Jay "brackets" label with the Epitaph catalog number on the left side of the center hole. The albums appear to have been issued in mono only.
