The original CD release omitted Moorcock's on-stage narration and contribution. This newly remastered edition features the entire stage show and restores Moorcock's narrative on CD for the first time outside of a rare 1994 American CD release, making a definitive edition of one of Hawkwind's most memorable works.
INCLUDES 5 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BONUS TRACKS & A LAVISH BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK, PHOTOS, MEMORABILIA & ESSAY
The album, originally released in 1982 by RCA Active, began life during sessions for "Sonic Attack” in 1981 and continued into the first months of the following year. The resulting album was a very different HAWKWIND release which utilised synthesisers and electronic music to great effect. Fused with Hawkwind's unique space rock style, the album gave the band another Top Thirty UK hit album and laid the ground for the "Choose Your Masques” album later in the year.
This Atomhenge reissue includes five previously unreleased recordings from the album sessions and fully restores the limited edition lyric booklet, included with initial pressings of the original album.
The conceptual album (based on Michael Moorcock s Elric books) was recorded in 1985 and was arguably one of Hawkwind's finest albums of later years. Critically acclaimed upon release, the album was followed by an extensive tour which would give rise to the Live Chronicles album. Deleted for many years, this reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and includes the bonus tracks Arioch (from the rare 1985 CD edition of the album), along with all four tracks from the 1984 Earth Ritual EP
