Shot Down in the Night (7:43)

Cover of Spirit of the Age - An Anthology 1976-1984

From Spirit of the Age - An Anthology 1976-1984 and 49 other releases

This song was originally penned by former Hawks keyboardist Steve Swindles, and is included on his solo album ‘Fresh Blood’ where it is performed by a number of then current Hawkwind personnel including Huw Lloyd Langton and Simon King. It had already been apart of the bands live set for sometime and even though Swindles had quit the band early in 1979 and replaced by Tim Blake the track was recorded on the bands 1979 UK tour and released as a single, it became the bands first UK chart hit for 6 years and has been a concert fave ever since.
