  • Palace Springs / California Brainstorm remaster

    A couple of great 90's era releases packaged together, along with a couple of bonus tracks from the Palace Springs sessions. If you only have the old palace springs release and are a fan of that lineup, IMO the new second disc (which was previously released as 'california brainstorm') is well worth buying this remaster.


    Atomhenge, the home of HAWKWIND's catalogue from 1976 - 1997, continue their series of definitive reissued editions of these classic albums with the release of: 'Palace Springs'.
    Oiginally released in 1991 by GWR Records, was the final HAWKWIND release to feature both Bridget Wishart and Harvey Bainbridge in the band, alongside a line-up of Dave Brock, Alan Davey and Richard Chadwick.
    Actually recorded in 1989 and 1990, the album comprised studio recordings that also featured Simon House on violin and 'live' recordings made at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles.
    Featuring fine renditions of HAWK classics such as: 'Time We Left {This World Today}', 'Damnation Alley', 'Lives Of Great Men' (also known as 'Assault And Battery') along with the excellent 'Treadmill', the album remains a fondly regarded HAWKWIND album.
    This Deluxe Edition has been Remastered from the Original Master Tapes and adds 2 Previously Unreleased Tracks from the 1989 recording sessions: 'Damage Of Life' and a studio medley version of 'Treadmill' / 'Time We Left {This World Today}' on Disc 1, whilst Disc 2 features the band's Concert at the Omni in Oakland, California in December 1990.
    The release features a Booklet with Restored Artwork, photographs and a New Essay.
