This is both a rewarding and a slightly frustrating release; for me, the Hawkwind line-up(s) which recorded the UA releases has always been a favourite and I've always wanted to hear to full live show, post Space Ritual, which featured Paradox, You Better Believe It etc.
This recording certainly fits the bill, recorded in Chicago on the infamous 1999 Party tour which featured Man as the support act (and their album from the same night is also available and highly recommended). The complete set is included on 2 well packaged CD's with excellent Barney Bubbles artwork; and there's plenty of "new" live tracks which had previously been released only on studio or studio-enhanced live versions, as on the excellent and under-rated "Hall Of the Mountain Grill".
The playing and song selection is spot-on, but I feel that the sound balance mixing could have been better - I think I'm right in saying that these shows were originally taped for radio broadcast and the vocals seem too far up in the mix, perhaps as a result. Whatever the reason, I was hoping to hear the same power generated on "Space Ritual" and the H.o.t.M.Grill "live" tracks and this recording just isn't as dynamic as it could have been.
The frustrating thing is that it feels that a bit more input in the production process could have achieved that potential, to turn what is a good document of the last time that the Lemmy line up performed live, into something a bit more special, an essential Hawkwind album from arguably their finest line-up. It's a fine collection and a good live record, but I was hoping for a really great one.

Here we have Hawkwind at the top of their game, at a time when Spacerock really meant SPACEROCK! This cd features such Hawkwind classics as Brainstorm, a scorching Psychedelic Warlords, Lemmys The Watcher and even the b side only Brainbox Pollution! Recorded at a time when Hawkwind were dropping Space Ritual in favour of more recent tunes, this document is essential for all fans of "Heavy" Hawkwind! All fans of the band should own this!

Being the HUGE Hawkwind fan that I am, the reason I'm giving this title a four-star rating rather than five stars, is that I, personally was a tad let down. Don't get me wrong, 'The 1999 Party' is still good and a keeper for life. It's simply not as fantastic as 'Space Ritual'. Maybe I expected too much. Recorded at the Chicago Auditorium on March 21, 1974. A time when Hawkwind was actually selling a decent amount of lp's in this gracious nation of ours. An old school fan would want this 2-CD for the fact it has Lemmy and Del Dettmar on it. I know several patrons that saw HW on this very tour. Sound mix is a 9.5 out of a perfect 10. It's a blast to experience "Standing On The Edge", "Brainbox Pollution", the wonderfully spaced out "You Know You're Only Dreaming" {one of my personal favorites}, "The Watcher" {featuring Lemmy on vocals}, "You'd Better Believe It", "Psychedelic Warlords" and Nik Turner's tripping "D-Rider". A definite must-have.

if you take the vocals and synths from this gig and the guitar bass and drums from space ritual life would be perfect. vic mailes recording of the space ritual is really good and strong especially the rhythm section. whoever recorded this gig did a good job but not as good as vic.... one of the pitfalls of live miking. i presume the vocals and synths went straight into the desk. a great gig in itself but slightly muddy guitar bass and drums. the synth playing with del and simon is utterly demonic and trippy. not perfect but still great and mental.
