This was recorded early in the tour and although as Dave Brock claims in the additional one hour interview that they didn't have much practice time, the band pulls off a tight and energetic performance. My only quibbles are that the camera work is pretty basic and the show is only 80 minutes long so I docked it one star. That being said this is still worth the money.
Out Of The Shadows is one great Hawkwind Concert. Huw Lloyd is healthy and in fine form. Tim Blake is back on synth (he from the glory days of Gong, and from the Ginger Baker/Levitation era of Hawkwind).
The rare treat here is Arthur Brown. Remember Fire by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown? Yeah, that guy, and if you don't know, he is/was/always has been one of the GREAT British front men, eccentric or otherwise. On this DVD he is at the top of his game and has lost none of his three octave range.
For me, the inclusion of Arthur Brown as front man is a natural fit and shows that Dave Brock, once again, has impeccable taste.
The song selection is a bonus rare treat. The obligatory ones are here: Master Of The Universe, Silver Machine, Assassins of Allah, but so are Out of the Shadows (from Space Bandits), You Shouldn't Do That (uncredited) (from In Search Of Space), The Watcher (from Doremi Fasol Latido), Earth Calling and Sonic Attack (from Space Ritual), two Arthur Brown songs - one sung through a pirate ship anchor, Tim Blake's Lighthouse and more. Don't miss this one.
