Differences between versions:
All iterations of Space Ritual appear to come from the same sets of concerts. The earlier iterations such as original Space Ritual release as well as releases named Volume 1 and Volume 2 appear to have been live recordings with studio overdubs.
Later iterations such as those titled Space Ritual At Sundown Vol1/2 and 1985 release Space Ritual Vol.2 appear to contain just live recordings without any studio overdubs.
The Back on Black vinyl release titled Space Ritual Vol 1 contains the first disc of the remastered 2007 CD version while Vol 2 contains the second disc.

Some copies of this edition apparently came without a hype sticker.

The matrix/runout for Disk 2 of my copy is NJC2<010>S2257659-V2, and the longbox cover has no color square as shown on the image here.

Really enjoying this. Not sure about the provenance of the source material but it has plenty of energy. Good sound.

This pallet cleansing anti-baroque psych mind eraser is a thing of primitive beauty! One would certainly be right to argue that this is not even Hawkwind's greatest, however, on its own merits this LP has little competition to rival its simple brilliance.

Photo of labels here shows '77 reissue with 'R' (Reg'd trade mark) on UA label plus 'A product of united artists' around label indicating a later issue. My '77 version has the printed inner sleeves (in thicker printed paper than originals) so suspect the originals were replaced by plain white in this description.

My copy has a Hawkwind Space Ritual Log book with a rather nice drawing of Stacia dancing in front of Skull and Cross bones out in Space. It is similar to the Log Book that cam with X In Search of Space. Will this be included in the release notes?

Incredible re-issue, great sound, silent pressing. I would recommend not using the paper inner sleeves, they are tight and create hairlines to the vinyls.

Beautiful reissue. The packaging is superb - some of the best I've seen on any reissue from the last few years - and the pressing quality is excellent. Both discs were a tiny bit warped from new but playback is practically spotless and the sonics are really strong on this pressing. I don't have an original to compare this to, but if you want a super clean copy of Space Ritual without breaking the bank, I doubt you could do much better than this.

Why is the Australian version blocked from sale but no others?

What is different about it? What is the problem?
