Led by the legendary Norman Haines, Locomotive were one of Birmingham’s finest 60s bands. They had a 1968 hit with the ska–styled Rudi’s In Love, but by 1969 they had taken a more progressive direction. Their sole album was produced by Gus Dudgeon (renowned for his work with David Bowie and Elton John), but its release was delayed and the band had split by the time it finally appeared at the turn of the decade, dooming it to minuscule sales. It is now regarded as a lost classic, and is one of the most collectible albums of the era. It makes its long–overdue return to vinyl here, together with an insert containing photos and info.
