Yes, a great Bob Calvert album, probably his best. Got it when it first came out and recently done a CD copy adding the Widow Song into the running order as outlined in the original accompanying booklet. Was a stage production/ concert ever done of the Captain Lockheed LP. What with the current vogue for "rock musicals" it would be great to see it on stage/film. We can all dream.

This album was banned at the time in Germany, for taking the piss out of Franz Joseph Strauss. I never tire of hearing the sketches, great fun and an integral part of the album/story.

Just found this topic.

This is such a wonderful album, talking and all. Aerospace-age Inferno, Ejection and The Right Stuff are three of my favourite Hawk-tracks.

A pity the tour got cancelled, due to Bob's illness, there would have been some interesting live shows.

Herr Minister, you know, it'll go well on the plane, we could do a logo around it and it would look very tasteful up in the clouds. We could illuminate it a bit - so, that on dark days you would see it twinkling like a star.



Also ....... G for Gott strafe England ... :)
