Audience recording of Hawkwind'as performance at the Top Rank, Southampton. Described as one of the better 1973 recordings, the sound is very indistinct - hissy, lacking treble, and distorted. However, it's listenable for all that. The original was also plagued with continuity problems - the sound cutting out numerous times and picking up a second or so later, which was rather annoying. These have been edited out, using similar brief sections in the music to restore continuity - "The Watcher" has had several bars added in, increasing its length nine seconds. A few odd pops and crackles, sometimes from the taper fiddling with equipment, have also been removed, making the listen a far less jarring one. The show is quite a good one, one song flowing into the next throughout the show.
