Hawkwind was one of the earliest space rock groups, formed in 1969. The lyrics to their music favor urban and science fiction themes. The group has gone through many incarnations and music styles. The line-up for this 1973 release includes Robert Calvert, Dave Brock, Nik Turner, Lemmy Kilmister, Dik Mik (Michael Davies), Del Dettmar, and Simon King.

In August 1971, Lemmy Kilmister joined the space rock band Hawkwind as bassist and vocalist. His bass work was a fundamental part of the Hawkwind sound during his tenure (1971-1975), perhaps best documented on this 1973 album Space Ritual.

Music for the album was recorded at Liverpool Stadium, December 22, 1972 and Brixton Sundown, December 30, 1972.

Recorded live in December 1972 and released the following year, Space Ritual is an excellent document of Hawkwind's classic lineup, underscoring the group's status as space rock pioneers. As the quintessential "people's band," Incorporating most of Doremi Fasol Latido, the show for the Space Ritual tour was conceived as a space rock opera, its blend of sci-fi electronics, mesmerizing psy-fi grooves, and heavy, earthbound jamming punctuated with spoken word interludes from astral poet Bob Calvert. Although his intergalactic musings date the album, coming across now as camp futurism, they still provide fitting atmospheric preambles to Hawkwind's astounding, mind-warping sounds.
