RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2015. OFFICIAL EXPANDED 2CD REMIXED AND REMASTERED SET OF HAWKWIND’s PERFORMANCE AT HAMMERSMITH ODEON IN LONDON IN NOVEMBER 1982. ALL TRACKS NEWLY MIXED FROM THE ORIGINAL 24-TRACK MASTER TAPES. WITH A LAVISH BOOKLET WITH PHOTOS, MEMORABILIA AND ESSAY.
In 1982 Hawkwind released the album ‘Choose Your Masques’ on RCA Active, their final release for the label and considered the finest of this era by many fans. The album would feature a line-up of Dave Brock, Harvey Bainbridge, Huw Lloyd Langton and Martin Griffin and contained such excellent material as ‘Arrival In Utopia’, ‘Solitary Mind Games’, ‘Choose Your Masques’, ‘Waiting For Tomorrow’ and ‘Dream Worker’.
The album was a Top 30 success and spawned a memorable tour on which the band was joined by returning member Nik Turner. The band’s concerts at Hammersmith Odeon in London in November 1982 were perhaps the highlight of this memorable tour and were recorded on 24-track tape by a mobile recording unit. The recordings were mixed as rough monitor mixes and appeared on various ensuing compilations throughout the 1980s and beyond. All the surviving multi-track masters were gathered together and mixed to create this stunning 2 CD set which features a guest appearance by Hawkwind collaborator and Science Fantasy author Michael Moorcock.
