Recorded, of course, during Hawkwind's 1979 U.K. tour, Live '79 wrapped up seven tracks from the hour-plus extravaganza that greeted concert-goers, with the emphasis (hardly surprisingly) on the older classics that remained the band's most dramatic calling card. For longtime fans, however, there were still several surprises, as the solid mass of earlier band lineups opened out to almost virtuosic proportions. With one eye surely fixed on the rapidly emerging New Wave of British Heavy Metal, guitarist Huw Lloyd Langton lays down guitar solos that the likes of "Silver Machine" and "Master of the Universe" had never previously imagined.
