I received this in a postal trade this week, and may I take this opportunity in thanking
Bernhard for his generosity in sharing some of his fantastic Hawkwind collection with me.
Consequently I now share this recording exactly as I received it with the additions of some artwork, this information file, and
the addition of some MD 5 Checksums.
So what can I say other than this is a very reasonable sounding 1975 audience recording culled from a gig at Frick Festival Switzerland on
I must stress that the sound is far from perfect we have to remember this is a 1975 Hawkwind audience recording however
the sound is constant, your ears do tune into the sound and I rate it at a very solid 7/10. I have a decent graphic equaliser and you can get the sound
very reasonable indeed.
Most Hawkwind fans out there on the ether would love the band to release an official 1975 live recording because that tour supported
the fantastic album "Warrior At the Edge Of Time" which is one of their true classics.
A look at the setlist and you can instantly see why that if you haven't got this recording and you are a Hawkwind fan you MUST
grab this whilst you can.
It has rarely performed tracks from the above mentioned album plus classic tracks from both "Space Ritual" of 1973 and "Hall Of The Mountain Grill" of 1974.
May I thank the band for allowing fans to share recordings such as these.
