Notes:

An early audience recording of Hawkwind in full flight. It's a surprisingly good one as well and very much nature of the band at that time. The regular drummer at the time, Terry Ollis got mislaid for this show and so Twink from the Pink Faries is on drums throughout. Some may be surprised to see Spirit Of The Age in the set so early on as it's usually associated with later Hawks.

Artwork included

A piece of vintage Hawkwind from the early "classic" lineup. This is a very clear, powerful audience recording with lots of depth.
No idea of the generation of this but it sounds very low. One of the better recordings of early Hawkwind.
