Hawkwind - Space Chase 1980-1985 is a compilation album of tracks recorded by the English space rock band Hawkwind between 1980 and 1985. It was released in 2011 and features highlights from the albums Levitation, Sonic Attack, Choose Your Masques, and The Chronicle of the Black Sword.
The album was released to coincide with the original Hawkwind guitarist Huw Lloyd-Langton touring solo as the opener for the historic "Space Rock Invasion Tour" of the US. It is a highly collectible single disc box set that includes a full liner notes, a 50+ page color booklet, selected discography, rare photos, free poster and more.
The album is a great introduction to Hawkwind's early 1980s output, which is considered by many to be some of their best work. The music is a mix of heavy rock, psychedelic rock, and electronic music, with lyrics that explore themes of science fiction, fantasy, and social commentary.
Space Chase 1980-1985 is an essential album for any fan of Hawkwind or space rock in general. It is a great way to experience some of the band's best work from a period of time that is often overlooked.
