Hawkwind / Warrior On The Edge Of Time Super Deluxe Edition

Hawkwind‘s 1975 album Warrior On The Edge Of Time has been remastered for the first time from the original analogue stereo master tapes, and is being released as a limited edition super deluxe edition in May 2013 via Atomhenge, the home of the ‘space rock’ band from 1975-1997.

This four disc set comprises two CDs, a DVD-A and a 180g vinyl, in addition to a deluxe book and various items of memorabilia.

The remastered album on CD one features eight bonus tracks, five of which are previously unreleased.

The DVD (NTSC) features a 5.1 Surround Sound remix from the original 16-track master tapes, and a new hi-res stereo remix – both by Steven Wilson. In addition this DVD features a hi-res (96khz / 24bit) flat transfer of the 1975 stereo master tapes.

The second CD in the set also features Wilson’s new stereo mix but comes with five further bonus tracks two of which are previously unreleased.

The heavyweight vinyl is cut from the original analogue cutting master tapes and is a ‘facsimile edition’ with “shield” gatefold sleeve and inner bag.

As well as the book, this set comes with a reproduction of an in-store promotional poster, a replica concert ticket and three promotional postcards.

    “3 editions—single CD, 3 disc deluxe clamshell (like Levitation) or the all singing , all dancing box set, complete with exact vinyl replica, large book, poster, postcards etc. –see text for details.

    I authored the DVD in this set and I wanted to point out some things that are not apparent from the promotional blurb above:
    1 – The original master is not, repeat NOT REMASTERED. It is a straight transfer with absolutely no additional EQ/Compression/Limiting – nothing. It IS the original version.
    2 – The 5.1 mix is also high resolution 24/96 presented in both lossless & DTS 9624 formats as well as Dolby Digital (obviously this is downsampled to 48K).

    Enjoy – Steven did a great job here

  6. ZIMMER says:

    I bought this babe, but it came with 2 CDs #1 and no DVD in…
    Anyone with the same problem?

  7. Matthieu says:

    My two cents: the 5.1 mix and the original stereo mix are both extremely good and well worth the price of entry. However, I find the Steven Wislon Stereo remix to push the cymbals too high. They become very distracting and I find it too tiring to listen to that mix.
