ATOMHENGE, the home of HAWKWIND’s catalogue from 1975 – 1997, are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered edition of "Lucky Leif & the Longships” by HAWKWIND poet, vocalist and collaborator ROBERT CALVERT.
Associated with Hawkwind from their inception, Robert Calvert made a significant contribution to the band, particularly on their 1973 live album "Space Ritual”, before leaving Hawkwind to write and record his classic debut solo album "Captain Lockheed & the Starfighters” in 1974. Buoyed by the critical success of the album he wrote his next solo work, "LUCKY LEIF & THE LONGSHIPS”. Calvert engaged BRIAN ENO to produce the album in 1975, calling on Hawkwind members SIMON HOUSE (violin), NIK TURNER (saxophone) and PAUL RUDOLPH (bass, rhythm & lead guitars) to assist with the making of the record.
 This Atomhenge reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes includes two rare bonus tracks (recorded in June 1974) and restores the original album artwork. The booklet is lavishly illustrated and features an essay by Sid Smith.

White Zone

Credited to the fictitious group Psychedelic Warriors, the album was recorded by DAVE BROCK, ALAN DAVEY and Richard Chadwick at Rockfield studios in November and December 1994, revealing another side of their musical nature, taking in influences from the UK Dance and Rave music scene, creating a unique record that was also undeniably Hawkwind.Issued on the Emergency Broadcast label in 1995 and deleted soon after, the album has remained elusive to Hawkwind fans for many years, making this reissue most welcome.
