HAWKWIND: Weird Tapes 3: Free Festivals: CD

This one’s almost too good to be true: Hawkwind at Stonehenge!  The first five tracks are, anyway – recorded at a free festival amongst the famous stones in 1977 – while the remaining three come from a 1975 gig (the Watchfield Festival, apparently) with a totally different lineup besides Brock.  The latter are a bit lower-fi than the Stonehenge tracks, which are nice and clear, but the Watchfield extracts only comprise about a quarter of the playing time anyway – obviously the Stonehenge stuff is the main attraction here.
