BBC Radio One Live in Concert is a 1991 live album of a 1972 concert by Hawkwind.

"It was recorded straight to quarter-inch tape – there were no overdubs and no possibility of remixing. This particular performance was also continuous for one hour which made for an interesting change over when the programme was aired since the reels of tape only lasted approximately 30 minutes each." – Jeff Griffin, BBC in Concert series producer.

This concert is still regularly aired by BBC Radio on the Live at Midnight slot on the BBC 6 Music channel [1]. Despite Griffin's claims that remixing is not possible, the broadcast version does sound markedly different from the CD release, having greater clarity and definition on the instruments and vocals. The broadcast version also has some brutal edits, removing the first 4 minutes of "Brainstorm", and during "Earth Calling" and the end credits.

In March 2010, EMI re-issued the concert as Hawkwind: At the BBC – 1972 as a double CD;[2] the first CD containing the original Windsong version, the second CD containing the version BBC uses for broadcast. The first CD also includes the studio session recorded for the Johnnie Walker show in August 1972, with performances of "Silver Machine" and "Brainstorm".
