ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release the classic album by Birmingham outfit THE DOG THAT BIT PEOPLE. Issued by Parlophone in 1971, it was the only album by the group that had evolved from the ashes of legendary band LOCOMOTIVE by Bass player Mick Hincks and drummer Bob Lamb. Joined by keyboard player Keith Millar and guitarist John Caswell, the group recorded this album for EMI Records in 1970. Bizarrely issued on the Parlophone label instead of EMI's Progressive imprint Harvest, the album originally failed to sell and original LP copies now command sums in excess of £500 among collectors. Featuring such excellent material as 'GOODBYE COUNTRY', 'THE MONKEY & THE SAILOR' and 'REPTILE MAN', the album combined harder edged rock with more subtle acoustic influences. A true lost classic, this Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes the rare B-side of the band's only single as a bonus track.
