(4 out of 5 stars)
"Originally had this show on VHS, but of course it's great to have it now on DVD. 'Night...' was recorded in spring, 1984 at the Gaumont Theatre in Ipswich, UK. Picture and sound quality is pretty good. At least with a DVD, I won't have to concern myself with the color fading. I thought it was interesting how co-founder Nik Turner was allowed to return to Hawkwind, as I noticed that Dave Brock allows Turner to be the frontman and focal point through out the entire hour long concert here. Tunes I more than thoroughly 'soaked in' here were "Ghost Dance" ( a different version than most others), the futuristic "Watching The Grass Grow", "Ejection", my two favorites here "Ejection" and "Uncle Sams on Mars" as well as "Sonic Attack" "Psi Power" (where Brock steps out to provide the lead vocals) and the stunning encore of "Silver Machine". Well done. Recommended."
