By Mike Reed VINE VOICE on January 22, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Only reason I'm giving this CD reissue a five star-rating instead of a four-star one, is BECAUSE of the superbly done remastered pressing of this title, Hawkwind's debut 1970 lp. Every cut here is totally awesome sounding! From the trippy opener "Hurry On Sundown" to the rocker "Be Yourself", "Mirror Of Illusion", the pre-Hawkwind blues cover "Bring It On Home" and their Pink Floyd cover of "Cymbaline". Now THAT'S class! You get the lp's seven original tracks remastered, plus four (4 )bonus cuts. Do keep in mind this record was produced by Pretty Things guitarist Dick Taylor, plus it's got some charter HW members that are rarely heard from anymore, like Dik Mik on electronics and Terry Ollis on drums. I've always thought as Hawkwind as being 'sort of' Floyd's rival. Listen for yourself and YOU tell me. First rate psychedelia, space rock or head music. Pick up a copy and you decide. Most highly recommended.

This is Hawkwind's 1970 debut. This album is truely great and truely spooky.

What it is is very spacey, early-Floyd tinged rock, full of dark nuances, and sound effects.

What it is NOT is the Hawkwind that developed right after this album. The songs here actually seem more composed, recorded carefully as songs and soundscapes. They don't have that driving, monolithic bass pump that Hawk would make their trademark starting on Doremi Fasol Latido.

But this is still terrific freekaziod space rock made by a band who defined the non-commerical end of the genre.

This is not the Hawkwind you know, but it is great Hawkwind.

(Techincally, three and a half stars, but they don't allow you to offer halvesies here. No matter.)

If you can imagine the early Pink Floyd ("The Piper at the Gates of Dawn," "A Saucerful of Secrets," "More") as what would eventually become "speed metal" in extraterrestrial wrapping and a peculiar theme of Michael Moorcock (a future contributor, as it happened) meets the Marvel Super Heroes on more than a few controlled substances, that was Hawkwind.

At least, that was Hawkwind as they'd become known beginning an album or two later. This debut set, long enough overdue for a remastering, displays much of what would soon identify the band, particularly its shifting between ethereal acoustic music and transdimensional electronic hard rock, but here it retains the very loose and very random feeling you might expect they'd have shown in their previous days as park buskers known for such performances as setting up and playing free outside the Isle of Wight festival and like appearances. Their future lyric hybrid is yet to be developed fully; here is a band which has found its sound but is trying to decide exactly what it is they really have to say.

Still, it's a charming sounding album with much good music, particularly their three earliest near-signature numbers, the cheerful post-hippie acoustic tapper "Hurry On Sundown," the stark surreal sonic wash of "Paranoia," and the spry jam, "Be Yourself," highlighted by reedman Nik Turner's half-Ayler, half-King Curtis saxophone squonk and guitarist Dave Brock's piercingly melodious break, both over a taut rhythm section and keyboardsman Dik Mik Davies's tastefully understated electronica. (True: erstwhile Pretty Things founder Dick Taylor not only helped produce the set but played some support guitar and bass on it.

It's Hawkwind! What's not to give 5 stars over? Well, some of the unofficial recordings simply cannot covey the intricacies and subtleties of their music so some of those really stink, but this isn't one of those! this is their first release from 1970 I think and one long missing from my CD collection.

If you're a Hawkwind fan, buy this. You won't regret it. I first heard them in the early 70s with In Search of Space but got hooked with Hall of the Mountain Grille. I've been a fan ever since. This was one I didn't have on CD and was impossible to find on LP. I was delighted to find it on CD and be able to start to fill the gaps in my Hawkwind collection.

For those unfamiliar with the band I have no clue what their music is specifically called. I always called it 'space rock' because it was, well, spacey, and I enjoyed it immensely listening while in a certain substance induced state of euphoria. Now that I'm old as dirt and have to be a 'good boy' for the most part, the music has lost none of its original appeal for me, euphoric or not. Think sort of progressive rock flavored with sprinklings of Psychedelic Pink Floyd, a dash of the Moody Blues, a hint of King Crimson with synthesizer effects, phasing, echoes, orchestrations, guitars... Other than Nik Turner's solo work I can't think of any other band that sounded like them. (NOTE: Don't make an association between Bowie in his Ziggy Stardust persona with the Spiders from Mars. There is no musical similarity)

While I strongly recommend this to people who are already familiar with them or are already fans, this may not be the best introduction disc to their music because the just kept getting better with each successive album.
