2 stars I was not sure if this is an official release, but it surely is in all aspects done on very poor bootleg quality. I bought it only on basis of its weird name and really nice home-drawn fantasy-themed cover picture (not the one being presented on ProgArchives album page). The audio quality of the record was a big disappointment, and I admit the album has not offered much listening enjoyments, only residing as strange artifact in the record collection. The audio recording levels have been too big for the loud noise of the concert, and sometimes it is quite difficult to hear what is going on at the stage. What's interesting about the show captured here is the big amount of Robert Calvert's poems backed up with sonic ambience by the band. But for example when "Orgone Accumulator" kicked in, it took me over a minute to comprehend that the formless static fuzz was actually a song with a rhythm. So if you want decent live of this band from the 1970's, stick to the "Space Ritual" classic or some other release. If you are a die-hard collector, you may want to check this out, but don't expect very much from its quality. Quite funnily obscure album though.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
2 stars Space Rock overlords Hawkwind present yet another live album. "Bring me the Head of Uri Gagarin" is almost universally condemned due to incredibly distorted production and an echoed sound that may have been recorded off a fan's tape deck that he sneaked into the stadium. We are talking about an incredible concert though set in Wembley when Hawkwind were colossal and not just some cult band for a bunch of stoned hippies.

The sound is appalling on this release though you can still hear what Brock is singing about, mind you these songs are part of my DNA so I know them anyway. I have to agree with other reviewers that this release is perhaps best left alone. It is a part of some archival material with bootleg quality and not really worthy of a mainstream release. The main drawcards are perhaps Bob Calvert's delirious rendition of 'In The Egg' that is hilarious and parts and disturbing in others; a genuine acid laced speech if ever there was one. The rest of the material is the usual fair, Masters is here, Orgone and Sonic Attack, but none hold a candle to the versions on the brilliant "Space Ritual" gem. They are fuzzy and screechy and sounds drop out, a real tragedy given how great these songs sound usually.

Another point to consider is the album features a new live version of 'Silver Machine' that is quite interesting as is 'Urban Geurilla', however after a few listens the sound is nauseatingly dreadful and one will long for a cleaner sound that is found on most other Hawkwind live albums.

You have been warned but do not panic? do not panic? think only for yourself.

1 stars Erm, what is this recording? I have the complete gig sourced from this album ,and another audience recorder, but I feel that both sources are audience recordings.
