5.0 out of 5 stars we were born to go as far as we can fly...... 11 Mar 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
......Unable to escape from the rest home for terminal hippies and sonic attack victims to which the captain banished them years ago, they enact plan B which is to outwit themselves and the audience by putting on a retro cosmic pantomime circa 1972, spacewarped to shrewsbury buttermarket 2004. Wish i`d gone (Shrewsbury being my home town), but i didn`t, and judging by this dvd i missed out on a crazy gig. After a slowish start they get into their stride with a superb "born to go " which is better than the hawkwind space ritual version. "d-rider" and "children of the sun" also excel as a result of the energy, musicianship and atmosphere created.Nik Turner`s voice, sax, and especially,flute all shine brightly. the rest of the band kick up a relaxed but tight groove with good lead guitar work from mick slattery and THAT "in search of space" sound from dave anderson and terry ollis on bass and drums respectively. special mention must be given to backing singer/percussionist Jacky Windmill who wails away like the soprano that joe meek used to use on his productions. All good stuff. If you are a big fan of the early hawkwind vibe with a bit of osric tentacles and early porcupine tree( not to mention the magic mushroom band) thrown in for good measure then you will find a good deal to enjoy here.I should have gone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, picture and sound. 7 Feb 2009
By Dr. Richard Dudley VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is an amazing DVD. Recorded at The Buttermarket, Shrewsbury, in 2004 it features a number of ex-members of Hawkwind performing many of the best songs of Hawkwind's back catalogue.

Here we have Nik Turner (vocals, sax, flute), Thomas Crimble (guitar), Terry Ollis (drums), Dave Anderson (bass) and Mick Slattery (guitar). Plus a couple of others (inc. John Greves, and Sam Ollis) and two dancers. While one of them is not so great - a la Stacia from the early days - the younger one has some grace and style. And ... c'mon ... surely any gig is enhanced by a dancer dressed as a schoolgirl! She's a darn sight prettier than the band...

The lighting is reminiscent of those liquid light shows of the early 1970s but now more computer generated fractals than hot oils.

The camera work is uniformly good - mixing a number of different camera angles and concentrating where appropriate of the vocalist, the band, the dancers and the light show. Some effort has gone into the editing and it shows - this is not a "point a single camera at the stage" type of recording.

The band are on top form although - as ever - Nik Turner dominates the proceedings with his costumes, theatricals, vocals and sax/flute work.

The sound quality is very good also. The lack of surround has been mentioned, but the sound is strong and clear. My only gripe is that the drums and bass are sometimes a little weak. The opening chords of Brainstorm (etc) really should make your fillings rattle. However the sound is generally full, deep and rich.

The track listing concentrates on the early period Hawkwind - hurrah! All the space rock classics are here - Brainstorm, Orgone Accumulator, Masters of the Universe, You Shouldn't Do That and Sonic Attack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD, (my) disc isn't so good 27 Nov 2008
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD straight from ents.tv, without a shadow of a doubt so far. I also bought some Hawkwind-albums (and DVDs) later, and they can't hold a candle to the performances on this DVD. All great, although the disc itself is starting to wear out a bit (unbelievably so); It's developing CRC errors and hickups when playing in my DVD player. I tried to make a backup on my PC (due to the hickups) and that's when I found out they were CRC-errors.

Oh, and I also wish it were DTS surround, this type of music is really well suited to surround. The stereo mix is quite good in itself, but 5.0 would have been even nicer. (I have no subwoofer, rather 5 big speakers)

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent music, but... 16 Oct 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you want a feel for early Hawkwind, done afresh, with a couple of new tracks, this is excellent. However, I'm sorry to say one of the dancers is just painful (someone's mum?) and the other often dressed in obtuse costumes (can you think of any Hawkwind track that deserves a school girl uniform?).

The interviews are just a reminder of the deep bitterness between Dave Brock and Nik Turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Space Ritual DVD 12 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a brlliant DVD, Hawkwind but not Hawkwind...just ex Hawkwind members playing old Hawkwind songs and doing a great job too. Great to see the old band members playing together again and the dancers aint bad either. Well worth the money and the production on the DVD is alot better than some of those Hawkwind have released in the past.......Go and get yourself a copy, you wont regret it ;o)
