Ginger Baker - Ginger Baker In Africa DVD
Review by Greg Olma
I had heard about this film years ago when I was looking for Cream material. It has finally come out on DVD and although you will find it in the music section of most video stores, this film is really more of a documentary.

Hawkwind - Levitation
Review by Gary Hill
Jim Lascko from Strange Trips, the US source for information on Hawkwind, describes space rock as being "characterized (by)(but certainly not limited to) spacey keyboards, driving guitar, sci-fi lyrics, repetitive chants, sound effects, long drawn out hard driving, high energy jams, along with the message that there is something wrong....something more going on in the Universe than just what is being done on this planet and our need to wake up to that fact, all played out against the backdrop of a killer lightshow!"

Review by G. W. Hill

It would be easy for a cynical person to assume that this was some hastily assembled set to cash in after the death of Jack Bruce.

Baker Gurvitz Army - Since Beginning: The Albums 1974-1976
Review by Gary Hill

This brand new three-CD set is all class. It gathers together the three studio albums from Baker Gurvitz Army released from 1974-1976, but you probably get that from the title.

Hawkestrel - The Future Is Us
Review by Gary Hill

The quick story is that this is an album with a lot of Hawkwind alums providing their talents. The longer tale is that it was assembled by Alan Davey with various parts coming from sessions recorded over the years.

Hawkwind - This Is Hawkwind, Do Not Panic
Review by Bruce Stringer
One step on from the classic, yet volatile, Levitation line-up this release is a collection of tracks highlighting their performance of 1981's Stonehenge festival, re-sequenced and sounding at their most energetic since the days of Lemmy. Ginger Baker, who was to leave shortly after this, added an element of jazz fusion to the chemistry in stark contrast to Simon King's staccato straight-four drumming and it's as if the set list was constructed to feature the mastery of British guitar legend Huw Lloyd-Langton.

Hawkwind - Zones
Review by Gary Hill

I know a lot of people aren’t crazy about this disc. For my money it’s well worth having.
