Captain Lockheed And The Starfighters = LP = (LP)
Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Includes printed inner sleeve. Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters is the solo debut by Robert Calvert, the former singer of the space-rock band Hawkwind. It's a satirical concept album with both songs and spoken interludes based on the story of the poor quality of the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter planes. The sputtering and sprawling planes starts up the album, which portrays the West German minister of defence as a psychopath who's furious about the Luftwaffe. It's the effective combination of rock and Monty Python skits where the true power of the album lies. Psych and space rock, but also folk music makes up the different sides of the album. Some artists who appears on the album are Brian Eno, Lemmy and Arthur Brown.
