Here is Space Rock with an edge from pioneers of the genre. Lemmy's bass driving the mothership of Hawkwind before he was ejected to form Motorhead. If you don't know Hawkwind there are far worse places to start. Due to the high quality of the BBC in recording live music (many of their one-off concerts for broadcast are far superior to studio releases of the time) this concert has been highly sought after by fans ever since it aired Oct 14, 1972.

To make a long review short - if you don't have this buy it! If you need a taste of the songs, many of them are on Space Ritual (where Amazon has samples as of this posting) but maybe just a little heavier here. Song titles follow.

If you already have a version of this, chances are you STILL want to buy this version. For those who wish to know specifically how this release matches up to what has been available previous, read on and I will delineate the differences in depth:

This set opens with the Johnny Walker Radio 1 versions of Brainstorm and Silver Machine - previously only available on the bootleg Dawn Of Hawkwind release in a very muddy form. Now they can be enjoyed properly for the first time. Officially, the rest of this 2 CD set is the definitive release of the concert Hawkwind recorded for the BBC on Sep 28, 1972 which aired Oct 14, 1972.

This concert, as broadcast, was for nearly 2 decades only available on the very rare BBC Transcription disc mailed to radio stations for airplay or as a bootleg. While the first 4 minutes of Brainstorm had been cut (along with a few seconds of Earth Calling according to some) due to time constraints the original BBC Transcription Disc had been a vibrant and enthralling mix.

Being a Hawkwind fan I had to buy this CD. The mono-mix really isn't needed; the stereo mix is better and worthwhile. I still like "Space Ritual" better and "Space Ritual 2", but this is a nice addition. Well worth it!

More, like an expanded 2-CD reissue of the (often hard-to-find) Hawkwind's 'Space London 1972' or the 'BBC Radio One Live In Concert' (see my reviews of both) only better. Looks like this must-own 'At The BBC - 1972' 2-CD piece has an entire disc of this essential HW live material that has never been released before. Comes with a 10-page CD booklet - with several vintage concert pics - that I don't remember seeing anywhere else. Highly recommended - especially for the completists and die-hard fans. Irresistible cover + I just still much prefer a physical copy of such.
