Product Description

CD Description

Long established as one of the minor classics of the British psychedelic pop genre, the Bulldog Breed album Made In England was recorded in mid-1969 but not released by Deram Nova until the beginning of the following year - by which time its thrilling Spirit-of- 67 mod/psych sound and commitment to hook-laden, subthree minute songs was fatally out of sync with the self-indulgence and bombast of the nascent progressive rock era. Taken from the original master tapes, this 2009 retooling adds both sides of the group s equally essential pre-album single, Portcullis Gate b/w Halo In My Hair . With new band quotes, rare photos and, for the first time, the full lowdown on Bulldog Breed s convoluted story including how vice queen Janie Jones came to make a cameo appearance on standout track Austin Osmanspare this is the definitive reissue of a muchloved, highly collectable psychedelic pop album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Psychedelic Classic 4 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
This was a band that should have been huge, as big Soft machine or even Pink Floyd. I discovered this album in the Cheapo bin at Forbes music shop in Dundee in the mid 1970s. You may think, "lost psychedelic classic, well good ley it stay lost" ,but you would be wrong. There is such rich diversity in this genre that has been dismissed as naive whimsy and it cries out to be rediscovered. I loved all of this stuff. From the opening cries of the newspaper seller on Paper Man through wonderful songs like Eileen's Haberdashery Store. The playing is great the songs are stronge although as is obvious from the two examples I have given they are a bit whimsical. They do have the great strength of being true to where they are from like the Kinks and the Proclaimers the do not submit to an international mid-atlantic style. You see even a Scotsman can apreciate Englishmen being true to their roots. This album deserves to be much better recognised as a lost classic of the era.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit like Skip Bifferty 2 Jan 2013
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
As it was recorded a year or two after Skip Bifferty, the recording sounds a bit more recent, but overall there is a similarity between what both bands were trying to do: 2-3 minute very English melodic psychedelic pop. They do a pretty good job of it, although I don't know if I'd call it a lost classic. Probably if you like the one band, you'll like the other. After this album, two of the band members including guitarist Keith Cross went on to form the more highly regarded progressive rock band T2.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bulldog Breed - Made in England 14 Nov 2012
By R. Kesler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Bulldog Breed, who took their name from The Beatles' song "Hey Bulldog," and came in at the tail end of the psychedelic movement, recording Made In England in 1969 [while the rest of the world was headed toward Woodstock and a new era], though not released until 1970 ... which pretty much meant that this bit of obscure three minute musical whimsies would remain just that. There was no way this Pink Floyd/Beatles influenced band, who laced their one and only album with tender introspective social observe-ative songs, could stand toe to toe with the self indulgent narcissistic over the top bombastic progressive rock that was sweeping, or perhaps bleeding, across the airwaves.

That being said, songs like "When The Sun Stands Still" are almost total embarrassments of overt sexuality, set to Blue Cheer and Nazz musical imagery. The following track "Reborn" finally manages to take the music to a new level, and had it been a few years earlier, they just may have succeed in having that Top Of The Pops hit. The lyrics run head over heels on most of the tracks, and are hushly spoken, as if being preached from an overgrown garden pulpit in machine-gun fashion. This was what pop-psychedelia was all about, it's nether pleasing or displeasing, and like the hip B movies it became the soundtrack for, most pop-psychedelic music is totally forgettable ... other than to those who love the genre and saw no end to it's jazzy mod driven bluesy overlaid guitar tracks, and story laden songs. I could list dozens of other albums like this, albums that have a quality, but not that certain something that would manage to bring them to the surface. Sadly, for the most part, Bulldog Breed will remain nothing more than a face in the crowd, but on those occasions when you least expect it, they will fill your head with wanderlust and warm summer memories; treasured memories morphed in amber, when the sky melted, the air buzzed with a new sound, and fingers etched liquid silver trails across the darkness.

Now ... for all those of you who managed to climb aboard the late night AM radio psychedelic adventure and actually bought one of these obscure gems, and it's still in great condition ... you can just about name your own price, because the little ditty is fetching the big bucks for those who collect the genre, and are must-have completists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bulldog Breed - 'Made In England' (Lion Productions) 20 Jan 2013
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
British psychedelic band's only 'proper' lp - initially saw the light of day in 1970. However, I believe there might be one - perhaps two Bulldog Breed compilation discs also out. Been wanting this title for awhile now. What would we collectors do without the Internet? Couldn't get enough of the moving "Sheba's Broomstick Ride", the ass-kicking "While The Sun Stands Still", the uplifting "Reborn", "You" (sort of reminds me of the Zombies), the boot-stomping "Top 'O The Pops" or the awesome lp closer "Halo In My Hair". Should appeal to fans of Kensington Market, Skip Bifferty, T2, Please and Tomorrow.
