Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This live album has of course little to do with "Space Ritual".

This one is seriously hard-rock or even metal oriented. But several years separates those two and the tendency of the early eighties is drastically different than in 1973.

Still the band is mixing their early days period ("Brainstorm", "Master Of The Universe") with their most recent one ("Motorway City"). This also shows that even during their early days, energy did mean something to the band.

The version of "Brainstorm" available here is totally disjointed and of an extreme violence. Guitars are devastating and after such a track the audience must have been pretty knocked down. Fabulous work as well from the rhythmic section. This is wiiiiild rock music, my prog friends.

Some aerial moment is needed to cool down a little bit, and "Lighthouse" fully does the job. It doesn't come from the "Hawkwind" repertoire but from a solo work from Tim Blake ("Blake's New Jerusalem").

Another crazy version of "Master Of The Universe" is rather energetic as well. While "Space Ritual" was more "trip" oriented, this "Live Seventy-Nine" is definitely a great moment of highly paced rock music. It all started with the punkish "Shot Down In The Night".

Three stars for this short live album which could wake up the deadliest ones.

3 stars Hawkwind - Live Seventy Nine (1980)

Hawkwind is band that should be listened to when playing live. The band also knew this and there are several live albums from throughout their long career. Hawkwind plays space rock/metal/punk with lot's electronic equipment. There isn't much great songwriting, but the sound is great and the atmospheres are a blessing.

L79 isn't one of the important live albums. It's short and it has some poor vocals and some weaker tracks. Spirit of the Age is a weak track of the band and I can't understand why this song has to played like on several live albums. The instrumentation of the band is however still good and it's good to hear Hawkwind as a five-man setting. Throughout the album one can hear the punk influences in the music, whilst the progressive leanings of the early and mid-seventies are almost gone. Still this is pure space-rock that would attract many lovers of the symphonic genre.

Conclusion. Not my favorite Hawkwind live album at all, but still good. Three stars. First try Space Ritual, Love in Space or The Business Trip.

Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
3 stars Hawkwind's second live album is a pale shadow of the epic 'Space Ritual' due to its lack of depth and material overall but there is nothing wrong with this album, that really cements the band's reputation as live treasures. This one features some of their greatest works such as the fantastic energetic opener, 'Shot Down in the Night' that became a single for the group.

It is followed by equally great 'Motorway City' and the live favourite 'Spirit of the Age' from their recent at the time 'Quark, Strangeness and Charm', though this could have been replaced by the brilliant 'Orgone Accumulator' that only seems to appear on 'Space Ritual' in live format for some unearthly reason.

'Brainstorm' is always welcome and this version rocks hard for about 9 minutes. Brock sounds dynamic and it is the band at their heaviest. The lead break is perhaps better than on 'Space Ritual' focusing more on rock than psychedelic overtones. There is an improvised section with some pounding drums, electronica and experimental guitar sonics making this a sheer delight.

'Lighthouse' is a nice diversion from all the heaviness and only appears on this album as it was a composition by Tim Blake. The band are in excellent form here with Dave Brock sounding raw but vibrant on vocals and guitars, with some synth thrown in. He speaks to the crowd occasionally such as before the ridiculously short 'Silver Machine' Requiem that cuts off badly. Harvey Bainbridge's bass and Huw Lloyd-Langton's guitars are always great to listen to. Tim Blake is on keyboards, and Simon King is terrific on drums.

'Master of the Universe' is a faster version that goes by too fast for my tastes but it is still fantastic to hear. The only low point is that 'Silver Machine' seems tacked on rather than included as the indispensable classic that it is.

Overall this is a solid live release and kicked off the 80s in fine form for Hawkwind. As with many Hawkwind albums this one appears in different formats with different track listing; the vinyl being different than the CD, but in this case it does not seem to detract from the overall enjoyment of the concert.

4 stars Thanks God for put this LP on my way! The classical 70's Hawkind sound (prog - psychedelic - almost - metal) runs through every piece of this album.

5 stars Excellent live album that endeared Hawkwind to a younger generation of rock fans; it came out along side the NWOBHM. Very powerful performances with a twin guitar assult on most tracks. It also features Tim Blake's solo piece 'Lighthouse.' I haven't heard the expanded version, but you cannot go wron ... (read more)

5 stars Fantastically energetic, often with a new-wave edge (Brainstorm!) offset perfectly by Tim Blake' space-synths. This is one of the all-round best Hawkwind albums and not too hard to get hold of cheaply on CD. As mentioned by another reviewer, there is a 'complete 79' around - I don't own it but h ...
