The CD booklet appears to be the tour guide, which is nice.
The set is the same as on the original "Live '79" record - but it's not the same gig (at least, not to my ears). The running order is the same except for moving Brainstorm after Light House -- and the additional tracks, of course (Urban Guerilla, Who's gonna win the War, World of Tiers, New Jerusalem, Satellite, PXR 5, Levitation).
Unfortunately, those classic Live '79 tracks don't sound quite the same... I was a little disappointed as the mix is not as good in places.
I'll have to play the whole album a few more times but I think I'm convinced it's a pretty good album to get if you've not got Live '79 (as that's hard to get hold of). If you already have - well, this is not a cheap 2 CD set like some of the Hawkwind back catalogue, so I'd find it harder to recommend.
I'd post 3.5 stars if I could...

Take Hawkwind playinjg a reasonable gig in 1979 with an interesting lineup including Tim Blake and Huw Lloyd Langton. Take a bunch of tracks not widely available on other live recordings such as World of Tiers, PXR5 and Satellite (which became a track on Church of Hawkwind under the name Phenomenon of Luminosity). Add in some interest variations of Urban Guerilla and others. Then take a microphone, wrap it in a wet sock at the bottom of a tube then don't point it at the band. This gives you some idea of what this CD pair gives you.

It's ok played loud in the car; beyond that I would say really for completists only - which is a shame.

Awful. I was really disapointed after looking forward to hearing this. I have Live 79 and although I was aware that the sound quality wasn't going to be as good I certainly wasn't expecting this. Wrapped in a wet sock indeed, then flushed. This could have been the best 'Live' output from the might Wind given the tracks and the line up, instead we are treated to a damp squelch of a thing, very poor ...avoid, it really is bad. It really does need to be remixed, re mastered, re released - (Vol2 is better - but still has similar failings )- To my mind you have Dave and Tim to the front of the mix, mainly Tim - Huw is lost and barely there at all, it wobbles and fluctuates - this is your captain speaking you have been warned!

This is rubbish. Some of the tracks which were not on the original live79 are here. This record is for serious collectors only. If you want a live album then go for Space Ritual/Live Chronicles/Love In Space but don't buy this!
The mix is pretty poor in places and not all the songs are typical of Hawkwind's style - they're not as good!
