Hawkwind - 4th June 1971. Darmstadt, Otto Bernte Hall, Germany.

Unfortunatly this amazing show can only have a Poor sound quality rating in anyones book.
So bad in fact that its very hard to tell if it was originally an audiecne recording or soundboard :-(
However their performance captures the ture spirtit of early Hawkwind, with long cosmic improvisations on the first two albums,
unlike the more structured sets just a few mionths later that were firmly looking to the Space Ritual set. As shown by the intersting comparison to the Birmingham december 1971 Kinetic Playground set that was posted here a few months ago.
So I decided to upload this.

I got this tape in a trade in about 1982. It is on a TDK AD90 with dolby on. Not sure if it was B or C.
So the Lineage is:- TDK AD90 cass gen? > Mac G5 > STPro > PC > TLH Flac > you.

The track listing given is:-
Side 1.
1. Electronics
2. Master of the Universe
3. You Know Your Only Dreaming
4. Shouldn't do that/ cut
Side 2.
1. /Shouldn't do that cont.
2. Paranoia
3. The Reason is
4. Rock 'n' Roll
5. Jamming

I would say :-
D101 - Electronics 16:02
D102 - Master of the Universe 10:31
D103 - You Know Your Only Dreaming 3:05
D104 - Jamming #1 5:39
D105 - Shouldn't do that/ cut 11:29
D201 - /Shouldn't do that cont. 4:36
D202 - Paranoia 4:17
D203 - The Reason is 7:00 (Nik says "Thank you Very Much" at end)
D204 - ? 2:30
D205 - Rock 'n' Roll 7:44
D206 - We Took the Wrong Step Years ago > Jamming 7:58
D207 - Jamming #2 (We do it) ? 11:47

I have greatly reduced the tape hiss using Sound Track Pro hiss reduction on a Mac G5.
This has cleared up the sound quite a bit to me and while its still not a true pleasure on the
ears it has made it far more intersting to Hawkwind collectors.
