$15.99

Limited 40th Anniversary Edition 7" picture disc.

''We can be Heroes, for ever and ever, What d'you say?''

Many of you will have already worked out that ''Heroes'' will be the next limited edition 40th-anniversary 7'' picture disc.

Originally released in the UK on 23rd September 1977, ''Heroes'' was the first single to be taken from the album of the same name, the second of the so-called 'Berlin Trilogy' of albums.

''Heroes'' was recorded in English, French and German and has over the past forty years become an inspirational anthem. When Bowie performed the song in West Berlin in 1987 with the Wall as a backdrop, thousands of East Berliners could be heard singing and cheering along; Bowie later described it as one of the most emotional performances of his career.

The AA of the disc is a previously unreleased live version of the track from Marc Bolan's 'Marc' ITV show, where the song was heard for the first time by fans in the UK. The track was recorded on the 7th of September 1977 but wasn't broadcast until later that month by which time Bolan had passed away in a tragic accident.

The image used on the A-side was taken by Sukita in Japan 1977, and the AA side was taken during the recording of the 'Marc' show in September, 1977.

''Heroes'' is one of Bowie's most-covered tracks with the likes of Prince, Blondie, Oasis, Nico, Depeche Mode, LCD Soundsystem, Peter Gabriel, Janelle Monae, King Crimson, Philip Glass, Kasabian, TV On The Radio, The Wallflowers and many more having performed it.
