    Let me guess - it's on the "Rock Fever" label? Have a look at the posts on this thread: [broken link]
    It is New World's Fair, btw :)

      We've already had some chats about this: [broken link]

      I've noticed on ebay that a CD of PXR5 has also appeared on the 'Sunrise' label, with some additional live tracks. A more desirable package for anyone who already has NWF - but can anyone shed light on its origins?

        10.PXR5 (1979)
        A contract-filling album that got Hawkwind out of their deal with Charisma. The legend on the cover "This is the last but one" refers not to this being Hawkwind's intended penultimate album, but to the fact that it actually predates the Hawklords album despite being a later release. All over the place stylistically but solid material with several gems. This album really started the Hawkwind tradition of semi-live, semi-studio albums, although Hall Of The Mountain Grill had ventured a step in that direction. Not currently available on CD, although 2nd-hand copies do appear from time to time. One odd thing about this is that the CD version (Virgin, 1989) contains a different vocal on the track "High Rise" - not as good as the vinyl original IMHO. 8/10

          Indeed! I was more specifically interested in the 'Sunrise' label, though. A pirate or what? :?

            Took a look on the web ...

            Found a Sunrise lable based outta Taipei, no Hawkind there also seems to be a German label but it's website is 404 and a Swiss one but it doesn't seem to have any Hawkwind either. My guess is pirate.
