PLASTIC HEAD MAILORDER EXCLUSIVE!! PLASTIC HEAD MAILORDER WILL BE THE ONLY RETAILER IN THE UK STOCKING THIS RELEASE AMAZING 180 GRAM 1000 ONLY LIMITED EDITION GATEFOLD BLUE VINYL REISSUE OF HAWKWINDS DEBUT ALBUM. The bulk of the album is composed of a freeform instrumetal piece that the band named "Sunshine Special" but it was separated into different tracks on this album. On the LP, "Paranoia" ends after the first minute with the music slowing down as though the turntable is stopping, and then picks up as the first cut on Side 2. Lyrics are scant, but those that are present and the song titles are a reference to the drug experience, as the sleeve notes explain: This is the beginning. By now we will be past this album. We started out trying to freak people (trippers), now we are trying to levitate their minds, in a nice way, without acid, and ultimately a completely audio-visual thing. Using a complex of electronics, lights and environmental experiences. The two book-end pieces of "Hurry on Sundown" and "Mirror Of Illusion" are more of a nod to Brock's alternative activity of busking and were released as a single in edited form.
