"Doremi Fasol Latido" by Hawkwind (1972)
Hawkwind "Doremi Fasol Latido"  1972 (UK)
Lemmy joined this legendary space rock band in 1972 and made them heavier. Hawkwind was already one of the hairiest, scariest hippy bands in England, notorious for copious LSD, sci-fi themes, and naked dancers at their shows. Their first album with Lem (third overall) was recorded incredibly cheaply, but the flat, compressed sound seems to point the way towards "post-punk." The first side of the record is almost entirely taken up by one of their most classic jam duets comprised of "Master Of The Universe" and "Space Is Deep." Side two is pretty strong as well, including more classics from their repetoire "Lord Of Light" and "Time We Left This World Today." The concluding track is Lemmy's first composition for the band "The Watcher" which has doom-laden lyrics but is sort of a psychedelic acoustic guitar ballad! But don't worry, he remade that song in a totally metal fashion on the debut album of his next band Motorhead in 1977.
