Product Description

From the Author

Synopsis of The Illustrated Collector's Guide To Hawkwind
I have been a fan of Hawkwind since 1969. In 1989 an opportunity presented itself for me to represent the band in North America through my record label Griffin Music. This led to me writing this book. With the help of Hawkwind fans around the world I managed to accumulate pictures and details of hundreds of Hawkwind records and CDs. Each song the band wrote is cross-referenced by album to help the Hawkwind fans find their way through the band's tortuous catalogue. In conclusion Hawkwind guitarist and founder Dave Brock, and world famous sci-fi author Michael Moorcock both conducted interviews exclusively for the book. I hope you enjoy it.

Format: Paperback
Formed in Early 1969 and playing one of their first shows outside England's Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, Hawkwind has always been at the forefront of musical exploration. Until now, getting a cogent perspective on the band's recorded oveure and ever-changing personnel has been as elusive as reading the spinning label of a 45 rpm record. Robert Godwin has undertaken this arduous task, and the results are close to stellar. With the help of Hawkwind members Dave Brock and Michael Moorcock (Moorcock contributed heavily in the lyric dept. in the 70s),Godwin has created a reference tool which is exhaustive in its scope and in every way essential. Tracing the band as buskers in England's Ladbroke Grove through countless benefit gigs and hallucinogen-fueled pyrotechnic excursions into the realms of high psychedelia, Godwin chronicles rehearsal tapes, bootlegs and studio outtakes as well as the band's 100+ vinyl and CD releases. Songs are cross-referenced by title as are the near epic-length space jams, EPs and singles. A must for every collector of 60s-90s psychedelia and an entertaining read for the uninitiated, Robert Godwin's Illustrated Collector's Guide to Hawkwind has "Quark, Strangeness and Charm."

'The Illustrated Collector's Guide To Hawkwind' - 176 pages 3 Jun 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First book I've ever reviewed here on Amazon. I got this book with the copy of Hawkwind's 1975 epic 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time' CD reissue (see my review). It's an absolute must-have for all true Hawkfans, like myself. When I first got this book,I had SO much to learn about the long-running UK space rock / psych band. This book is just the place to learn about such. Except, now it's a bit out-dated perhaps. It has vital information from 1969-1992. Not only does this book have a cross-reference guide of songs from "Adjust Me" to "You Know You're Only Dreaming" that tells you each and every CD / lp that each song appears on, but B&W photos of most every Hawkwind album & video that was ever released up 'til 1992. Plus, there are two decent interviews with Dave Brock and resident Sci-Fi author Michael Moorcock. Let's not forget the group 'family tree' that lets you know when each past member like Nik Turner, Lemmy, Ginger Baker, Simon House, Dik Mik, Simon King, etc. had joined and left. But, wait there's more, a concert date list that's been already noted as being incomplete anyway and a few flyers as well as rarely seen artwork. Highly recommended.
