4 stars I have known Hawkwind for years without listening to none the band records. I only bought forty years ago an 7" of Motorhead (the song and a must have on UA records) and this was sufficient until I got some records along the years (garage sells, flea markets and other strange places). As for Doremi ..., I bought the Back on Black Rock Classic reissue, with the 4 CD bonus tracks of 1996. According to my own rates of stoner, acid and psychedelic music, this album enters the progressive classification rather than others. Not enough heavy for stoner, not really acid in an american way, not psyche like UK bands definite it, the heaviness of the rhythm section is lighted by the production, which allows the right place to acoustic guitars, flutes and others. The electronics part add the milky way color that flies along most of the tracks. The single version edit of Lord of light with the Ozzy sounding voice is the perfect epitome of Hawkwind repertoire and something I listen very often. It's a shame the band is not enough known for the good mix of acoustic and electric, like here. Many tracks like ejection remind me of Monster Magnet the true spiritual son oh H, don(t you agree ? How many stars to conclude ? No less that 3, no more than 4, it's up to you Prog Archives to complete this first contribution.
