On The Move
Review by Gary Hill
This album by Hawkwind alumni Langton is a great rocking release. It has no weak material and quite a bit that is very strong.

Huw Lloyd Langton - Live Newcastle-under-Lyme April 11th, 2003
Review by Bruce Stringer
Sometimes, against all odds, there are people who not only manage to perform well in their given field but offer unique insight into their developed techniques. Last Friday's Lloyd-Langton Group gig, just outside Stoke-on-Trent, was indeed an event of insurmountable obstacles and bad timing.

Hawkwind - Canterbury Fayre, 2001
Review by Bruce Stringer
Hawkwind are one of those bands that fans tend to gravitate (or levitate) toward a particular era or period. My own favourite being the Levitation-era (with Ginger Baker on drums) followed closely by any of the 1980's material graced by genius guitarist Huw Lloyd-Langton.

Hawkwind - Dark Matter: The Alternative Liberty/UA Years 1970 – 1974 (Record Store Day 2018) Vinyl
Review by Gary Hill

The music contained on this new double disc vinyl set has only previously been released on one fairly rare CD set. I don't own that release, so I'm glad to have this.

Hawkwind - Hawkwind
Review by Gary Hill

Hawkwind’s debut album is really much different from the rest of their catalog. For one thing it’s more psychedelic and much of it shares a lot of ground with Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd.

Hawkwind - Levitation
Review by Gary Hill
Jim Lascko from Strange Trips, the US source for information on Hawkwind, describes space rock as being "characterized (by)(but certainly not limited to) spacey keyboards, driving guitar, sci-fi lyrics, repetitive chants, sound effects, long drawn out hard driving, high energy jams, along with the message that there is something wrong....something more going on in the Universe than just what is being done on this planet and our need to wake up to that fact, all played out against the backdrop of a killer lightshow!"

Hawkwind - Out of The Shadows DVD
Review by Bruce Stringer
Of all the Hawkwind visual records this is the best quality and includes a classic stunning Rodney Matthews cover illustration and a slightly odd collection of songs. Performed at Newcastle's Opera House in the UK it was one of, if not the, last performance of Huw Lloyd-Langton with the group on this tour.

Hawkwind - The Chronicle of the Black Sword
Review by Gary Hill
Hawkwind had a friendship with the science fiction author Michael Moorcock – he actually joined the band at one point. It should seem no surprise, then that they would do a concept album based on his Elric series.

Hawkwind - The Friday Rock Show Sessions - Live at Reading '86
Review by Gary Hill

Hawkwind - The GWR Years 1988-1991
Review by G. W. Hill
It's hard for me to pick favorite Hawkwind albums. I mean, I'm a big fan of the band, and I like pretty much all of their albums.

Hawkwind - The Xenon Codex
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve seen some less than stellar reviews of this disc, but for my money it’s a great album and well in the upper percentile of Hawkwind releases.

Hawkwind - This Is Hawkwind, Do Not Panic
Review by Bruce Stringer
One step on from the classic, yet volatile, Levitation line-up this release is a collection of tracks highlighting their performance of 1981's Stonehenge festival, re-sequenced and sounding at their most energetic since the days of Lemmy. Ginger Baker, who was to leave shortly after this, added an element of jazz fusion to the chemistry in stark contrast to Simon King's staccato straight-four drumming and it's as if the set list was constructed to feature the mastery of British guitar legend Huw Lloyd-Langton.

Hawkwind - Weird Tapes 2 - Hawkwind Live and Hawklords Studio
Review by Gary Hill
In terms of number of albums released, Hawkwind is arguably the most prolific rock band in history. I once read a listing of all Hawkwind releases from several years ago and the number was somewhere in the 80’s.

Hawkwind - Zones
Review by Gary Hill

I know a lot of people aren’t crazy about this disc. For my money it’s well worth having.
