    Hawkwind - In Search Of Space

    Year of Release: 1996
    Label: EMI
    Catalog Number: HAWK2
    Format: CD
    Total Time: 57:42:00

    Bobo reviewed several Hawkwind titles in an omnibus review; they are listed separately in the database. This is the second of the five reviews.

    I do remember very vividly how I armed myself against arriving enemies with the sleeve of Warrior On The Edge Of Time. When folded open the sleeve became a cardboard shield which illustrated perfectly the great creativity of the band. Founded at the end of '69 as Group X, the band evolved, via the name Hawkwind Zoo, to Hawkwind; this band has always had eyes and ears for detail in order to deliver Art with a big A! That art not only was apparent in their music but also in the sleeve designs. The coming of the compact disc made it difficult to continue to deliver that same Art. The tiny booklet in the kitsch-like cold, static, plastic jewel cases no longer has that Hawkwind feel. Fortunately EMI/Premier has seen how serious this was and has re-released the band's first albums in digipack replicas. They did whatever it took to finally release the complete artwork even including various extras such as concert posters, exclusive photographs, extra sleeve notes and the almost obligatory bonus tracks.

    With the release of In Search Of Space in '71, the band found its sound whilst Krautrock entered the brains of Brock & Co, founders of "Brock'n roll"! The long, frightening "You Shouldn't Do That" is a prime example. Monotonous, repetitive rhythms are alternated with electronic gadgets and stories of space like in the well-known "Master Of The Universe." Next to a replica of the Hawkwind logbook we get the original single versions of "Silver Machine" and "Seven By Seven" together with a live edit of "Born To Go."

    You Shouldn't Do That (15:41) / You Know You're Only Dreaming (6:36) / Master Of The Universe (6:17) / We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago (4:48) / Adjust Me (5:46) / Children Of The Sun (3:14) / Bonus tracks: Seven By Seven (Single Version) (5:21) / Silver Machine (Single Version) (4:39) / Born To Go (Live Single Version Edit) (5:05)
