Mid-line EMI reissue from 2001 of the fourth Hawkwind album (originally issued by UA in 1973), with 24-page booklet of liner notes, photos & illustrations. Featuring the Doremi line-up (Brock, Lemmy, Nik Turner, DikMik, Del Dettmar & Simon King), plus the addition of Bob Calvert (on "poet and swazzle"), this was the group's finest moment and possibly rock music's ultimate integration of live sonics into skin-bumping cultural architecture. Perfectly presented here in remastered form with three bonus tracks. "It was all captured on this beautiful, psychic roar-out of a double live set. Culled from recordings made at The Liverpool Empire and The Brixton Sundown in late December, 1972, two tracks were so long they needed to be edited down to a 'mere' 88 minutes! The sheer power of the repetition represented here become mantric walls of sounds, all held together by Dave Brock's sonic mortar guitar and the stunning rhythm section of Lemmy Kilmister on bass and Simon King on stamina-driven drums." -- The Seth Man/Head Heritage.
