Choose Your Masques: Collectors Series Volume 2 is a 2009 live album release of most of a pair of 1982 concerts by Hawkwind. It was recorded during the winter 1982 tour at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, mostly on 12 November, with some tracks possibly from 13 November. The recording features a guest slot from Michael Moorcock on 12 November. Note the final actual set list, compared to the released double-CD, and all songs where Nik Turner's contribution could be removed, have been, almost certainly due to continuing legal wrangles.

Note the final actual set list, compared to the released double-CD, and all songs where Nik Turner's contribution could be removed, have been, almost certainly due to continuing legal wrangles. In December 2014, Cherry Red advertised a re-release on its website as follows: "In 1982 Hawkwind released the album "Choose Your Masques” on RCA ACTIVE, their final release for the label and considered the finest of this era by many fans. The album would feature a line-up of DAVE BROCK, HARVEY BAINBRIDGE, HUW LLOYD LANGTON and MARTIN GRIFFIN and contained such excellent material as ‘Arrival in Utopia’, ‘Solitary Mind Games’, ‘Choose Your Masques’, ‘Waiting for Tomorrow’ and ‘Dream Worker’. The album was a Top Thirty success upon its release and spawned a memorable tour on which the band was joined by returning member NIK TURNER.The band’s concerts at Hammersmith Odeon in London in November 1982 were perhaps the highlight of this memorable tour and were recorded on 24-track tape by a mobile recording unit. The recordings were mixed as rough monitor mixes and appeared on various ensuing compilations throughout the 1980s and beyond. All the surviving multi-track masters have now been gathered together and have now been mixed as this stunning 2 CD set, presented in the best audio quality to date." It seems also that they have re-instated the entire setlist, including "Ghost Dance", "Steppenwolf" and "Warrior on the Edge of Time", but the encore has been omitted. (en)
