Description

I’m too high to die” intones Calvert, and Rudolph proceeds to tear it up with yet again before the final crash. Between Calvert’s vocal renditions, the funereal nature of the song and the overall Teutonic effect makes it seem more than a possibility. S. Air Force as a light, single seater, fair weather fighter [that the German Defense Ministry had hastily converted into] heavy duty, atom bombers. Alan Davey is a magician and to think if he hadn't left H/W we may never have got this beautiful work.

Calvert must have felt a strong affinity with them as he too was unreliable, difficult to control and unstable as hell.I have this original version with insert containing lyrics and dialogue stapled to inside center of gatefold.

The sputtering and sprawling planes starts up the album, which portrays the West German minister of defense as a psychopath who's furious about the Luftwaffe. It's the effective combination of rock and Monty Python skits where the true power of the album lies.

Ejection" (coupled with "Catch a Falling Starfighter") was released as a single, although both songs are slightly different versions to those on the album. Well, this excellent concept album not only has an expanded track listing, it also has a great insert / booklet which includes an essay and reminiscences by Nik Turner, who also played on the orginal 1973 recordings. The musical guests included Hawkwind, Arthur Brown and Brian Eno, making for a unique and legendary album. Yes, Robert Calvert was the eccentric vocalist with Hawkwind for some years, and this, a play with rock music, was his first solo album.The storyline of the record is political and related to the time when album was written, focusing to a case when German government bought jet fighters from the America. Former Hawkwind bassist Alan Davey revives the Psychedelic Warlords, including frontman Craig High, keyboardist Zoie Green and guitarist Simon Wilkins, for an acid trip down memory lane on this spectacular live recording! The vinyl release of Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters includes a 4 booklet with extensive liner notes. United Artists label as per this version but it also includes the printed inner sleeve with German eagle in light blue on silver background not shown in the pictures here.
