Sampler is a compilation album by the English rock band Cardiacs, released in 1995.
The album was intended as a budget introduction to the band's music, and was released as part of the general 1995 reissue of the Cardiacs back catalogue. Each track is taken from a different album in the reissue series. Most of the tracks are performed by Cardiacs, but the album also features two tracks performed by Cardiacs spin-off projects: The Sea Nymphs ("Christ Alive") and Tim Smith's Extra Special OceanLandWorld ("Veronica In Ecstasy"). Sampler features two of Cardiacs' singles/lead tracks - the charting version of "Is This The Life?" and a live version of the title track from the "Big Ship" mini-album.
