The Atomhenge label (part of Cherry Red) has announced the release of the remastered Edition of Hawkwind’s album Warrior on the Edge of Time. This space rock classic newly remastered from the original stereo master tapes will be available in May 2013.

Contrary to popular myth, the master tapes of this classic album were never lost,” said Atomhenge label manager Mark Powell. “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”.

In addition to the single disc remastered edition, there will be two other expanded editions of the album. “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,” adds Mark Powell. “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”.

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,” said Cherry Red managing director, Adam Velasco.
