Hawkwind - Warrior On The Edge Of Time Deluxe Edition
This surely will be the reissue of the year. "Warrior On The Edge Of Time" is one of Hawkwind's best albums but has never been given a proper release on CD due to "legal" reasons. Only ever available before on CD taken from second generation copies, vinyl copies or illegal issues from unknown sources, at last it gets the full Esoteric deluxe treatment. From the pic it looks like they have gone to town to give us a definitive edition. Not only is this the first time the album has been mastered from the original master tapes but Steven Wilson (of course) has done new high resolution stereo and surround mixes too. The Super Deluxe edition also comes with a vinyl copy in a sleeve replicating the original shield design. I have waited years to hear this album in all its space rock glory. Not long now.
