By 1984, Tank may have undergone almost a full line-up change which left Algy Ward as the only sole original member, but that did not deter Tank from releasing another great album in the shape of ‘Honour & Blood’ and this year has Hammerheart Records reissuing this album on both CD and vinyl.
What the listener gets here is the chance to get their paws on an album which has been out of print for a while, but it will come fully remastered for the best sonic sound on modern stereo systems. The CD version of ‘Honour & Blood’ will come housed within a slipcase and like the other Hammerheart reissues, it will feature a two-sided poster which you can assemble inside your cave. However, the vinyl version of ‘Honour & Blood’ will come as a limited-edition, not just as a black vinyl but it will also be available in blue with red bi-colour, a blue and mustard mixed vinyl as well as a mail order only ultra-clear version with blue, red and yellow splatter. This vinyl edition of ‘Honour & Blood’ will come in heavy cardboard cover, a four page insert and a double-sided poster.
When it comes to reissues, Hammerheart Records know the drill and therefore, what the purchaser gets with ‘Honour & Blood’ is another excellent example of how to do a reissue properly… the record isn’t half bad either!
