Greasy Truckers Party is a live album that features sets by Brinsley Schwarz, Man and Hawkwind.
It was recorded at The Roundhouse in London on 13 February 1972.
As it’s available as a digital download that lets you choose what you have and what you don’t, I’m treating this as an album by each of the groups.
These are three very different acts with Brinsley Schwarz and their country based pub rock, Man playing psychedelic guitar rock like the Quicksilver Messenger Service and other San Francisco bands and Hawkwind with their heavy space rock.
This is the only live recording of Brinsley Schwarz that I’m aware of.
