Atomhenge, the home of Hawkwind’s back catalogue, is proud to announce the release of a deluxe 50th anniversary limited edition double LP release of HAWKWIND’s legendary live album SPACE RITUAL. Recorded on the band’s UK Tour of December 1972, which followed the release of the band’s recent studio album DOREMI FASOL LATIDO. The live show was a continuous performance linked by poetry recitation by ROBERT CALVERT and was a complete audio-visual experience. Featuring the dancers Stacia, Miss Renee and Tony Carrera, the concerts also featured an elaborate light show by famed lighting designer Liquid Len. The Space Ritual tour followed the huge success of the Silver Machine single (although the song did not feature in the live set) and three concerts were captured on tape by the Pye Records mobile unit. The resulting double album was adorned with memorable artwork by designer Barney Bubbles and was a Top Ten hit in the UK upon its release in May 1973. This 50th anniversary 2 LP limited edition has been cut at Abbey Road studios utilising the original master tapes.
