This is a fantastic live album from the Calvert era. Brilliant set list and superb sound quality.

Essential

Agreed.

Just a smidge after the Calvert Era - the band regrouped once Calvert and others had departed, Hugh Lloyd-Langton returned and the band toured as he plus Brock, Bainbridge and King with Tim Blake. But no Calvert.

It was a difficult time, with misleading and ambiguous messages from the band, notably on liner notes - Quark, Strangeness, and Charm in 1977 said on its inner sleeve:

'Last year was the worst year for us, finding us in debt and out of touch with the modern world. We have had a few changes: the sacking of Nik Turner, Paul Rudolph and Alan Powell and the arrival of Adrian Shaw'

The next album had two titles depending on when it was pressed, and a never fully-explained name change to Hawklords. The following album PXR5 said 'This is the last but one', a comment which no one has ever adequately explained. The last but one ever album? The last with Calvert because it was recorded before the previous release?

Then followed Live In Seventy-Nine, with its even more cryptic inner sleeve note: 'Things still not much better - we had to get rid of Calvert this time owing to his becoming too mad to even be in Hawkwind. Oh, and now we are on the Bronze label, so if you could start referring to 'The Bronze Age' and make it clear we are no longer still in 'The Calvert Era' that would be very welcome, ta in advance'.

Actually, I made that last one up.

Yes - thanks for the correction Chris.

I suppose what I meant in saying the 'Calvert era' was that most of the material was from those albums (I think) - but that might be wrong too

High Rise, Spirit of the Age....? I need to check

My memory's not what it was!

I know I definitely have not heard this before.

Starts superbly - loving the occasional touches of rinky dinky organ (which now seem to have disappeared).
