Flame Tree Featuring Nik Turner
Review by Gary Hill
A couple of the musicians here should be quite familiar to regular readers of Music Street Journal.

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

This is a unique album. In many ways it doesn’t really feel like a Hawkwind album.

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.

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 - 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.

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.

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.

Dennis Rea - Views From Chicheng Precipice
Review by Gary Hill

The rock part of the progressive rock on this is missing throughout much of the disc.

Zhongyu - Zhongyu is Chinese for Finally
Review by G. W. Hill

Based on the name of the group and the cover, it would be easy to think that Zhongyu was a Chinese band.

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.
