This review is from: Space Ritual (Audio CD)
(3 disk Collector's Edition reviewed)
I was a massive Hawkwind fan early in their career and my most memorable experience was when they toured Space Ritual. In all I sat through it three times with the gig at Derby King's Hall being my favourite. Stacia and an amazing light show provided something to look at while the band worked through the story. I was disappointed over Michael Moorcock's absence but Bob Calvert was there as far as I know. As much as I would have loved that concert to have been preserved on tape this full version on two cds is as good as it gets. From the opening "Earth Calling", along "The Black Corridor", through "Space is Deep", then marking "!0 Seconds of Forever", assaulted by "Sonic Attack", meeting a storming version of "Master of the Universe" and being made "Welcome to the Future" the concert is an aural roller-coaster ride with no time to breathe. In my opinion one of the best sets to be recorded by any band ever.

This edition includes several bonus tracks and the videos for Silver Machine and Urban Guerrilla. Accept no substitutes.

Hawkwind may have soared to greater heights with Earth Ritual but this recording is essential listening to any fan of the band in its many incarnations.
