3.0 out of 5 stars Expanded Edition - Disappointed with the bonus tracks..., 28 Sep 2013
This review is from: Renegade (Audio CD)
I'd been looking forward to the expanded versions of THUNDER & LIGHTNING and RENEGADE, now I've got them & I'm not impressed with the selection of bonus tracks. On Thunder & Lightning, the 6 bonus live tracks are from 1981 with Snowy White, only part of the show. There should have been live tracks from 1983 with John Sykes, plenty of shows to choose from (Reading, Regal, Dublin etc). The demo tracks are OK, but what about 'Don't let it slip away', a great unreleased track recorded during the Thunder sessions?? On RENEGADE we just get a the Trouble Boys/Memory Pain 7" tracks & versions of album tracks, this should have been expanded to a 2CD with a live show from 1980-82...Seems to me this has been cobbled together with little thought unless they're holding stuff back due to the BBC Box Set or future releases...These could have been so much better....

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hawkwind!!!, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely fantastic!!! An all-time favourite Hawkwind album re-released with some tasty bonus tracks & a classic live set (previously released as California Brainstorm)...The live set has always been a favourite, unlike some live Hawkwind CDs the sound quality here is great & its a great gig...Palace Springs is a part studio & part live album, it came out in 1991, not long after Space Bandits (another classic)..It flows seamlessly, contains some of my all time favourite numbers/versions especially Treadmill & Damnation Alley...1989 was the year I really got into Hawkwind, buying Space Bandits then Palace Springs on vinyl...Saw them live a few times (Manchester Apollo, Bradford & all nighters at Brixton Academy etc) with this line-up...a real purple patch....Still into Hawkwind, looking forward to their Manchester Ritz gig in January 2013!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!
