Parlophone Records say: "On January 28, 1970, Hawkwind - Dave Brock, Mick Slattery, Nik Turner, Terry Ollis, Dik Mik, and John A. Harrison - signed to Liberty Records. Slattery left soon after, to be replaced by Huw Lloyd-Langton, and the banded record their first, self-titled, album at Trident Studios in London.
"The period from 1970 to 1974 proved to be a busy time, seeing several lineup changes, the rise to prominence of a certain Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister, the ingenious Space Ritual Tour - and a peculiar ban from BBC recording sessions. This box set celebrates that period."
