Nik Turner is probably best known as a former member of Hawkwind.

The Final Frontier
Review by Gary Hill

The latest disc from Hawkwind founder Nik Turner, this has some definite links to the sound of that band. The space rock drives this, but it's not the only game in town either.

This new soundtrack album has some cool stuff on it. Personally, I think that it would be stronger if it was just the first disc.

Hawkwind - Acid Daze: The History of Hawkwind
Review by Gary Hill

Given the subtitle on this, you’d expect it to be a chronological compilation with detailed liner notes. Well, if you want that you need to get Epoch Eclipse

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 - Doremi Fasol Latido
Review by Gary Hill
While I like every Hawkwind album a lot, and often for different reasons, of the early discs, this one might be my favorite. Don’t get me wrong; I love In Search of Space and the self-titled debut.

The Prog Collective - Epilogue
Review by G. W. Hill

This is quite a cool set. The main man behind this is Billy Sherwood, and I always like the stuff he does.

Hawkwind - Epoch Eclipse
Review by Gary Hill
Chronicling the entire career of the band, this box set really is a wonderful collection. It shows the diversity of Hawkwind in all their varying styles.

Hawkwind - Hall of The Mountain Grill
Review by Gary Hill
Hall of the Mountain Grill probably represents the apex of Hawkwind's popularity in the US, arguably being their best-known album in that country. Arguments can also be made that it is the most straight progressive rock release they have done.

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 - Hawkwind (Record Store Day 2015 Orange Vinyl)
Review by G. W. Hill

This newly released special edition vinyl of the first Hawkwind album is gorgeous.

Hawkwind - In Search of Space
Review by Gary Hill
In Search of Space (sometimes referred to as X – In Search of Space) was Hawkwind’s second album released in 1971. It found the band working through a lot of the same tribal chant oriented sounds as the self-titled predecessor, but also gave rise to the incorporation of some of the more progressive rock oriented textures that would become more common in their sound.

Robby Krieger - In Session
Review by Gary Hill
This compilation disc is quite strong. There is really a lot of great music here.

Hawkwind - Space Ritual Collectors Edition CD / DVD
Review by Bruce Stringer
EMI has released a series of special edition CDs for collectors, which include many rare recordings and some with video material. This edition of Hawkwind’s live psychedelic freak-out, Space Ritual, comes with the complete show of full-length versions of tracks (as some were previously issued in edited form to fit the vinyl format).

Hawkwind - Space Ritual Volume II
Review by Gary Hill
Originally when this was released on vinyl, Space Ritual Volume I and II didn't exist, only one multi disc set "Space Ritual". When released on CD it was culled into two separate albums.

Hawkwind - Stasis: The U.A. Years, 1971-1975
Review by Gary Hill

This is kind of a cool set. While Hawkwind fans might well have these songs on various albums they already own, they will probably find a few things here they don’t have – at least not these exact versions.

Various Artists - The Rift - Dark Side of the Moon (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Review by Gary Hill
This new soundtrack album features some killer music. It leans on the space rock, trippy side of the equation.

Space Mirrors - The Street Remains
Review by Gary Hill

This album was released just before Cosmic Horror III: Stella Polaris but recorded during the same sessions as that album. This one lands a bit less metallic than that album.

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 - 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.
