1 stars Poor sound makes this the least essential of the 1990 live albums, although it does contain an otherwise unheard live version of Black Elk Speaks, which frustratingly fades in in the middle of the song. You would be much better served by picking up Live 90 or California Brainstorm if you want to hear the 1990 Hawks in all their glory. Avoid.

1 stars BEWARE! Whether it's Hawkwind doing it to themselves ? or unsprupulous others ?I really don't know.

What I do know is that there is a huge pile of Hawkind DVD's and CD's of trully appalling quality ? I couldn't telly you what the performances are like if I wanted too. They might br great ? We'll never know as these products are marred by truly awful bootleg sounds that are much worse than the freely available live sets that can be downloaded LEGALLY, FOR FREE, from numerous websites. If you must have more Hawkwind check the websites ? Do NOT buy these terrible recordings ? you have been warned

2 stars According to the press release this is previously unreleased and it is not hard to hear why. While collectors will always want a copy of every gig a band plays, if possible, they will avoid poor quality boots if at all possible, and this sounds like one of those. From the reaction of one person when they kick into "Brainstorm" this is almost definitely an audience recording, with sound quality as muddy as the fields at Glastonbury where this was recorded at 5 am. If you are a die-hard must have everything Hawkfan then don't say you haven't be warned, otherwise leave well alone.
