Hawkwind - Quark Strangeness & Charm

You wouldn't think that Hawkwind would be making good records in 1977 -- but somehow they made a few: this and PXR5. Eno seems to play a strong influence here (Rob Calvert and he worked together on Captain Lockheed record a few years earlier, not recommended). The title track is killer Roxy-ism. Hassaan I Sahba is train wreck but hilarious.

Yeah, get over the corniness -- and groove to the heavy-yet-sometimes light dynamic space rock. It appears the CD of this is out of print -- so this might be your only chance, hooray!
