There can never be another album quite like “Space Ritual”. Captured live, for many, it’s Hawkwind’s very apex – the sound of your brain being fried. Originally edited into four glorious sides, it now spills across two extended discs with bonus tracks. From hereon in, Hawkwind were permanently cast as sonic overlords with wit and intelligence just as strong as the substances coursing through their veins. There was always something of the whiff of Campari about poet and sometime frontman Robert Calvert among the heavy sweating hairies, as if he was puffing a cigarette through a holder, observing, detailing. The doom metal of Time We Left This World Today slamming in after Calvert’s Richard III-isms on Sonic Attack still thrills. Space Ritual is as central to the 70s as The Dark Side of the Moon of the three-day week.

“The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London” is a 1973 live double album recorded in 1972 by UK rock band Hawkwind.

In addition, there are new tracks (“Born To Go”, “Upside Down” and “Orgone Accumulator”) and the songs are interspersed by electronic and spoken pieces making this one continuous performance. Their recent hit single “Silver Machine” was excluded from the set, and only “Master of the Universe” remains from their first two albums.

“In Search of Space” is the second studio album from Hawkwind, released in 1971. In April 2006 it made No. 83 in Classic Rock’s “The 100 Greatest British Rock Albums”, noting that “drummer Terry Ollis and bassist Dave Anderson could hit an awesome groove, allowing the rest of the band to cut loose on their acid-fuelled sonic adventures without fear of losing themselves or their listeners.” In the same issue, Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson placed it at No. 2 in his top 5, adding “it’s an extraordinary whirlpool of cosmic sound, the definitive space-rock statement. I love the album’s repetitive, almost pagan feel. It dispensed with the idea of soloists and has a real sense of ‘otherness’.”
