Post a Comment. Pretty cool line up. I can only imagine how fried everyone was but their lids must have really flipped once Hawkwind blasted into their intro song "Technicians Of Spaceship Earth. Later in the year Terry Ollis would be replaced by Simon King and that line up would record the classic Space Ritual album in December. Leave No Star Unturned finds them in very good form but they have not yet achieved the ignition they would have on the nights the recorded Space Ritual.
Still, live Hawkwind from the classic era is always a good thing, especially since the set lists are pretty different. The version of "Silver Machine" from this show with Robert Calvert singing was later overdubbed with Lemmy's voice and turned out to be a big hit single for them.
The Awakening - Hawkwind - Leave No Star Unturned version they released was definitely an improvement but it's still cool to hear The Awakening - Hawkwind - Leave No Star Unturned the way it went down on this night.
The studio version on their first album is pretty nuts but this one makes that one seem tame. Lemmy really hammers away at a repetitive bass line while the band creates all sorts of swirly chaos around him. Listening to this really loud when sober might make your stomach a little queasy. Just think of the poor hippies getting bombarded with this noise and a bunch of strobe lights pointed right at them!
Genesis never did this. The limited edition version of the CD comes in some very cool packaging, about the size of a DVD box. There's Nen Bourgeois - De Strangers - Serjeuze Liekes booklet with rare photos, including a couple nudies of dancer Stacia, and informative liner notes.
If you're new to HawkwindSpace Ritual remains the definitive document but more experienced travelers will want to embark on this trip pronto.
