Live Chronicles is a 1986 album by Hawkwind recorded of a live performance of their The Chronicle of the Black Sword concept album based on the Michael Moorcock character Elric of Melniboné.

Overview[edit]

The original album release lacked "Assault and Battery" and "Sleep of a Thousand Tears" as they had been licensed to Flicknife records for single b-sides, and the Michael Moorcock spoken pieces due to Moorcock being in dispute with GWR owner Douglas Smith.
