AllMusic Review by

Flicknife's Friends & Relations series has been a sprawling mass of labyrinthine tracks and trails through the Hawkwind family tree (a strange and sometimes delightful journey in its own right). This set culls the detritus that they've spread out over three discs and distills the best material (arguably) into one powerhouse weird fest. There's Robert Calvert's "The Right Stuff" from his Pressurized project as well as Hawkwind's own "We Do It" and the Hawklords' "Time Of..." There's even a Helios Creed cut in "The Master." In all it's still a mixed bag, but it's at least a very focused one and one that the more casual collector will find very useful. But is there such a thing as a "casual" Hawkwind collector?
