Hawklords / 25 Years On

Vinyl variants

Again, only minor differences between territories. Some came with a picture inner, some didn't. There was some extra pink detailing on the back of the German sleeve. And an insert with sleeve notes and lyrics in the Japanese version.

However, promo copies of the album exist with the front and back images swapped. Note how the superimposed lines on the 'factory' remain on the back.


The vinyl running order was retained. The Australian version emphasises the 25 Years On title.

The 8-track also retained the vinyl order, but couldn't resist correcting the spelling of 'Automoton'. This was the last Hawkwind album to appear on 8-track.
