Hawkwind 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time'
Atomhenge, the Cherry Red Records label managed by Esoteric Recordings, the home of the entire Hawkwind catalogue released between 1975 and 1997, are very pleased to announce that the classic Hawkwind album 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time' will be released on May 27th 2013 as a newly remastered edition from the original stereo master tapes.

Atomhenge label manager Mark Powell says "Contrary to popular myth, the master tapes of this classic album were never lost. They remained in the United Artists vaults. The Atomhenge reissue will be the first ever CD edition to be taken from the original first generation master tapes. All previous editions have been taken from vinyl transfers or inferior copy master tapes. I'm extremely pleased to say that Steven Wilson has mixed the album into a stunning 5.1 Surround Sound mix from the original multi-track master tapes and has also undertaken a new stereo mix of the album which has an amazing depth and clarity whilst remaining faithful to the original release. 'Warrior' is one of THE classic albums of the 1970s and is a land-mark album in Hawkwind's history. The forthcoming reissues will do justice this magnificent record".

Cherry Red managing director, Adam Velasco adds, "The album 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time' has been unavailable officially on CD for many years and it is our intention to make the forthcoming releases definitive editions in terms of audio remastering (from the original master tapes), content and packaging".

Warrior On The Edge Of Time is available as a Standard Edition, a Three Disc Expanded Edition and a Super Deluxe Boxset, a strictly limited collectors edition featureing...

• CD One - The first ever remastered version made from the original analogue master tapes, plus 8 bonus tracks, five previously unreleased.
• CD Two - Features a new stereo mix by Steven Wilson made from the multi-track master tapes plus 5 bonus tracks, two previously unreleased.
• A region free DVD featuring new 5.1 surround and stereo mixes by Steven Wilson plus a 96 khz 24-bit flat transfer of the original 1975 stereo master tapes.

• The boxset also includes a deluxe 48 page book with photos, memorabilia and essay, a reproduction of the American in-store promotional poster, a replica concert ticket from detroit in 1975 and three promotional postcards.
