DAVID BOWIE Released His Outstanding Berlin Album ‘HEROES’ 42 Years Ago Today…

Classics from the past…

14 October 2019

46 years ago today, on 14 October 1973 the late great genius DAVID BOWIE released his highly challenging and superb HEROES album. It was his 12th longplayer. The second part of his Berlin Trilogy (although ‘Heroes‘ was actually the only LP wholly recorded in Berlin) co-produced with Brian Eno and Tony Visconti and contributions by guitar phenomenon Robert Fripp. The classic lead single ‘Heroes‘ unquestionably helped the commercial triumph of the album peaking at #3 on the UK Albums Chart.

PITCHFORK wrote: ” “Heroes” is the second installment of David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy. The trilogy, and “Heroes” in particular, show all the signs of an artist growing up, shaking off the trappings of capitalist ego and success, and searching for a soul instead. It often sounds as if Bowie is conducting chaos, smashing objects together to discover scarily beautiful new shapes.” Full review here. Score: 10/10

Here come the LP’s two singles

– HEROES –

– BEAUTY AND THE BEAST –

DAVID BOWIE Released His Classic Anthem ‘HEROES’ 42 Years Ago Today…

Knockouts from the past

23 September 2019

bowieheroes2

Artist: David Bowie
Song: Heroes / B-side: V-2 Schneider
Released: 23 September 1977, 42 years ago
Album: Heroes
Note 1 : Bowie wrote the song after seeing his producer/engineer
Tony Visconti and his girlfriend by the Berlin Wall. The song tells the
story of two lovers, one from East and one from West Berlin
Note 2 : It was co-written with Brian Eno and recorded in July
and August 1977 in the legendary Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin
Note 3: Despite the fact that it wasn’t a big hit (reached only #24
in the UK and didn’t chart in the USA) it became one of Bowie‘s most
famous and most covered songs. An epic diamond, a solid gold and
timeless achievement with the immortal line for all lovers, then and
now: “We can be heroes, just for one day…”

Here’s the masterstroke…
