  • The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London is a 1973 live double album recorded in 1972 by UK rock band Hawkwind. It is their fourth album, reached #9 in the UK album charts and briefly dented the Billboard Top 200, peaking at #179. The album was recorded during the tour to promote their Doremi Fasol Latido album, which comprises the bulk of this set. In addition, there are new tracks ("Born To Go", "Upside Down" and "Orgone Accumulator") and the songs are interspersed by electronic and spoken pieces making this one continuous performance. Their recent hit single "Silver Machine" was excluded from the set, and only "Master of the Universe" remains from their first two albums. The Space Ritual show attempted to create a full audio-visual experience, representing themes developed by Barney Bubbles and Robert Calvert entwining the fantasy of Starfarers in suspended animation traveling through time and space with the concept of the music of the spheres. The performance featured dancers Stacia, Miss Renee, Jonathan Carney (later of the V8 Intercepters) and Tony Carrera, stage set by Bubbles, lightshow by Liquid Len and poetry recitations by Calvert. On entering the venue, audience members were given a programme (reproduced on the 1996 remaster CD) featuring a short sci-fi story by Bubbles setting the band in a Starfarers scenario returning to Earth. The original release featured edits and overdubs, the sleeve notes explaining that "We had to cut a piece out of Brainstorm and Time We Left because they were too long", but the 1985 Space Ritual Volume 2 album contains the full unedited versions. A previously unheard edited version of "You Shouldn't Do That" (segued with an unlisted "Seeing It As You Really Are") from this concert was included on the 1976 Roadhawks compilation album, then subsequently included as a bonus track on the 1996 remaster CD. The full unedited version of the track can be found on the Hawkwind Anthology album. June 2007 saw another EMI remaster issue with different bonus tracks and DVD-audio. "Sonic Attack" had been written by science fiction author Michael Moorcock, who often performed with the band when convenient and Calvert was unavailable. Here it is recited by Calvert and it was scheduled for single release, promotional copies being distributed in a cloth sleeve, but it never did receive a full release. In the Q & Mojo Classic Special Edition Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock, the album came #8 in its list of "40 Cosmic Rock Albums". (en)
  • The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London es el primer álbum en directo de Hawkwind, lanzado por United Artists en 1973. Editado como LP doble, alcanzó el puesto Nº 9 en los charts británicos, y el 179 en el Billboard 200.El álbum fue grabado durante la gira de "Doremi Fasol Latido", consistiendo mayormente en temas de ese LP, más algunos temas nuevos como "Born to Go", "Upside Down" u "Orgone Accumulator". Los segmentos musicales están separados por efectos "cósmicos" creados por Dik Mik y Del Dettmar, y por breves recitados del poeta sudafricano y amigo de la banda, Robert Calvert, creando una performance auditiva sin interrupciones, salvo por la lógica limitación de los lados del disco.El único tema incluido de los dos primeros álbumes ("Hawkwind" e "In Search of Space") es "Master of the Universe", mientras que el hit-single "Silver Machine" fue omitido en la selección.

  • Space Ritual Albums de Hawkwind Doremi Fasol Latido(1972) Hall of the Mountain Grill(1974) Space Ritual, ou The Space Ritual Alive in Liverpool and London est le quatrième album du groupe de space rock britannique Hawkwind, sorti en 1973 sur le label United Artists. C'est le premier album live du groupe, enregistré lors de deux concerts de la tournée de promotion de l'album Doremi Fasol Latido, donnés le 22 décembre 1972 au Liverpool Stadium et le 30 décembre au Brixton Sundown. Il est composé majoritairement de titres de "Doremi Fasol latido", mais comporte aussi de multiples interludes (notamment des poèmes de Robert Calvert où Michael Moorcock) qui relient les titres entre eux pour donner un concert sans interruption. Trois nouveaux titres ("Born to Go", "Upside Down" et "Orgone Accumulator") font aussi leur apparitions sur cet album. Cependant le hit single "Silver Machine" (# 3 en angleterre) n'est pas présent sur cet album et seul "Master of Universe" provient des deux premiers album du groupe. Plusieurs titres (" Brainstorm" et "Time We Left This World Today") ont été raccourcis afin que l'album puisse tenir sur un double vinyle . Les versions complètes ont vu le jour par la suite sur divers albums d'archives, notamment Space Ritual Volume 2 (1985). L'album entre dans le Top 10 au Royaume-Uni en se classant à la 9e place et sera le premier album du groupe à entrer dans le classement du Billboard 200 (# 159) aux États-Unis. La pochette est à nouveau réalisée par Barney Bubbles. (fr)
