New domestic mid-line reissue; previous U.S. edition on TVT is now deleted. The third in Warp's series of Artificial Intelligence albums, originally issued in 1993. Black Dog was the trio of Ken Downie, Ed Handley and Andy Turner (the latter split off to eventually form Plaid), and this was their first of two full-lengths for Warp (1995's Spanners was next), following a long series of EPs dating back to the late '80s on their Black Dog Productions label, GPR, Rising High, etc. The quintessential early Warp machine-music sound and an utter classic of it's day, this showcases England's answer to Derrick May like nothing else that comes to mind. Although it's technically a compilation of tracks by various Black Dog alias' (Plaid, Xeper, Atypic, Close Up Over, I.A.O., Discordian Popes & Balil), this flows seemlessly though the AI emotional streamline with explosive grace.
