2 stars Robert Calvert will always be associated with Hawkwind, although he did also record two well-received solo albums in the Seventies ('Captain Lockheed & The Starfighters' and 'Luck Leif & The Longships'). Hawkwind keyboard player Simon House, who played him some backing tracks that he had recorded, introduced Robert to cellist Pete Pavli. Robert went away and came back a few days later with melodies and lyrics and recorded them in an afternoon. The tapes were then forgotten about for some ten years, and it was only after Robert's death that they were released as a limited edition.

They were never finished, there are only four songs, and they were intended only as demos. Only the supreme Hawkwind/Calvert fan will be interested, so if you are not one of these then leave well alone.
