Hawkwind were still reeling from the shock of a monster hit single, "Silver Machine," when they set out on their late Space Ritual tour, a date outing that crisscrossed Britain from early November until the end of The High And The Mighty - Various - Top Hits of 54 Volume II year.
Vastly ambitious, 10 Seconds Of Forever - Hawkwind - Space Ritual Volume 2 choreographed, and brain-charringly loud, the concept had been on the band's mind for over a year already -- "we're getting a space odyssey together which will be a completely environmental situation," Dave Brock remarked in latewhile bandmate Nik Turner later reflected, "it was a very grandiose thing.
