Robert Calvert Anthology: Music Wish List

Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:26 pm

Talk of getting Bob's poetry and plays out into the public domain via 'The Robert Calvert Anthology' is a great thing, but such was the talent of the man wouldn't a CD anthology of his best music moments also be a good thing to have?

I am sure UA/EMI etc must have enough material for a 2 CD set, without including Hawkwind tracks.

What would be on YOUR 'Best of Bob' compilation?

the mighty Robert's sense of humour mixed with his lyrical genius was intriguing and so rare - Moonshine In The Mountain's was a howl! - the great MM on the banjo if memory serves - he painted a picture! - never got to see him live unfortunately

I was very fortunate to see him live several times (yes I am old :D ) and the highlight for me was the performance of highrise prior to the release of PXR5, it totally and utterly blew me away.

Can't argue with most lists so far:

Ship of fools
Ejection
Aerospaceage Inferno
Acid Rain
Ned Ludd
First Landing on Medusa
Hanging out on the Seafront
We like to be Frightened
Diamond Mine
Over my Head
Adrenaline Rush
Right Stuff
Widowmaker
The Machines Are Quiet
Cricket Lovely Cricket
Catch A Falling Starfighter
Lord Of The Hornets
Greenfly and The Rose
Evil Rock
Teen Ballad of Dino
Standing On The Picket Line
Stranger In A Strange Land*
Messengers Of Morpheus*

I have vague recollections of some of these from an old tape he did with Adrian Wagner*(?)

Come on record companies, you can do it :D . Esoteric maybe?

Forgive me if slightly off, but what did they trim from the Cellar Tapes when they made the CD?

I might be happy with that because I lost my Cellar tapes.

Big favourite of mine - I've actually performed it (acoustically).

That makes me think - it would make a great addition to the Hawkwind acoustic set.

Silly me, I just now realized that "working down a diamond mine" might have been a (slight) double-intender about the music biz?

hey Blackadder,
I have a Robert Calvert 45 on UA in company sleeve if you're interested.

BTW, I have been trying to recall which 2 you got, and also wondering why the fast purge.
Is it by chance the alternate mix?
I am forgetting what is what!!
