Hawkwind / Robert Calvert

Until I lived in
I remember being rather bummed when I found out that Robert Calvert died. I was really into his “Hype” solo album. My collection is far from complete. I would love to find Calvert’s book, “Hype” – the story of “Tom Mahler”.

CD TEST-TUBE CONCEIVED CD LABEL
In 2009, I am not beyond getting some Hawkwind albums as re-mastered CD’s (naturally with bonus tracks). It’s a shame that the CD re-issues do not have the full-size graphics created by the late designer Barney Bubbles. Some of his best 70’s work was for Hawkwind. Of course, they also used Hipgnosis. Storm’s book of LP covers that’s making the rounds now looks very tempting, as well. To be honest, I’ve eyeballed that book a few times, and I am always surprised at how many of the albums I know…guess I tried them because of the distinctive cover art?
