3 stars I found this one in the discount cd bin for maybe 3 or 4 bucks (U.S.). It was an import from England and being a major HAWKWIND fan I had to add it to my collection. This is a recording of a live show from Sheffield in 1984 and some studio stuff from 1989 to fill it out.Like most HAWKWIND live releases there are the standard songs : SONIC ATTACK,ANGELS OF DEATH etc. But the Hawk Lords always seem to be able to put a new spin on some vintage tunes!This is a good solid HAWKWIND release. If you are a fan then you are already sold, and if this band is new to you,then this is as good a place as any to start.Standout cuts include HEADS,WATCHING THE GRASS GROW and opening track ORGONE ACCUMULATOR.

2 stars Probably one of the weakest of their live albums, with far too much Nik Turner showmanship on the '84 tracks for my taste (although not quite reaching the depths of the "Night of the Hawks" DVD). That said, this does contain a fun version of 'Orgone Accumulator' done at near punk speed, and the unreleased 'Damned By the Curse of Man', which is actually Turner reciting a Michael Moorcock poem to musical backing. The '89 songs aren't much hotter, with the band not quite reaching the peak that they would attain the next year with the release of 'Space Bandits' and the subsequent tour. Nice version of the rarely recorded 'Dragons and Fables' though. Despite all this (or more accurately, because of all this), 'Files' is still only for Hawkwind completists.
