Cleopatra to Release 6-CD Set of Space Rock

by VVN Music

Back in the 70's, a number of mainly British groups started playing music that was dominated by slow, long instrumental passages and lyrics revolving around science fiction and outer space. Known as "Space Rock", the genre included such artists as Hawkwind, Gong, T.Rex, Tangerine Dream and even early Pink Floyd.

On November 18, Cleopatra Records will release a new six-CD set that collects some of the greatest acts from the genre on Space Rock: An Interstellar Traveler's Guide.

Along with bands like Hawkwind and Gong, there is a broad assortment of spectacular bands from all over the great Planet Earth including bands from Germany, Scandinavia, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, France, Hungary, Finland, Italy, and elsewhere! This one-of-a-kind set also includes a never before released track by Hawkwind co-founder Nik Turner from his forthcoming new album.

Each CD comes in its own individually designed jacket and all are housed in a deluxe 7"x7" box with oversized booklet featuring liner notes by music journalist Dave Thompson, band biographies, photos, and out of this world artwork!
