5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable resource for any collector of psychedelia., 10 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Illus.Col.Gde to Hawkwind O/P (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."
