Esoteric Recordings and Atomhenge, the home of the Hawkwind catalogue, are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic HAWKWIND compilation Roadhawks. Originally released in 1976, the album brought to a close the first era of this legendary band, gathering together highlights from the band’s first five albums and featuring the classic singles Silver Machine and Urban Guerilla.
The significant factor in the creation of Roadhawks was the remixing and editing of some tracks by DAVE BROCK and the inclusion of a previously unreleased live version of You Shouldn’t Do That. Housed in a striking sleeve inspired by a Barney Bubbles image, Roadhawks was an indispensable album in Hawkwind’s discography of the 1970s.
Long deleted and never re-issued on LP since 1984, Roadhawks finally appears once again on Atomhenge. The reissue has been re-mastered from the original United Artists master tapes and has been cut at Abbey Road studios, fully restores the album gatefold artwork and includes the Roadhawks poster originally included with the first pressing of the album.
