"BBC Radio One Live in Concert" is a 1991 live
albumof a 1972 concert by Hawkwind.
"It was recorded straight to quarter inch tape - there were no overdubs and no possibility of remixing. This particular performance was also continuous for one hour which made for an interesting change over when the programme was aired since the reels of tape only lasted approximately 30 minutes each." - Jeff Griffin, BBC In Concert series producer.
This concert is still regularly aired by
BBC Radioon the "Live at Midnight" slot on the BBC 6 Musicchannel [http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/shows/liveatmidnight/tracklisting_20070108.shtml] . Despite Griffins' claims that remixing is not possible, the broadcast version does sound markedly different from the CD release, having greater clarity and definition on the instruments and vocals. The broadcast version also has some brutal edits, removing the first 4 minutes of "Brainstorm", and during "Earth Calling" and the end credits.
