Better thought of as a documentary than a rock concert...
on 20 July 2007
Recorded at the last free Stonehenge festival during the summer solstice of 1984, this DVD acts better as a documentary of the occasion for posterity than as an out-and-out hawkwind concert performance DVD. I say that because there were elements of the recording of he concert that annoyed me - for instance, fading out Motorway City and a couple of other songs and cutting out a section of Brainstorm. The footage of the concert itself is not brilliantly filmed either. That aside, this film of a Hawkwind band featuring Nik Turner playing at Stonehenge is a fairly key record in the history of the band and, musically, the performance is strong enough to keep you watching and listening to the end. The DVD opens and closes with footage from the Stonehenge site, atmospheric and an important record. So, overall, despite some flaws i would recomend this DVD to other Hawkwind fans.
