Blondie – Heroes (David Bowie Cover Version) (1980)

46180

Blondie’s 1980 live recording of David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ was released a as a bonus track on ‘Eat To The Beat’ in the 2001 re-issue of the Blondie back catalogue. The recording first surfaced on the 12″ of ‘Atomic’ after Deborah and the boys performed the song at London’s Hammersmith Odeon on January 12th 1980. This particular performance is notable for a rare live guest appearance by guitarist Robert Fripp who also played on the original version. Although unavailable on a Blondie release since that original 12″, the song was available on the excellent, if hard-to-find, ‘David Bowie Songbook’ CD. ‘Eat To The Beat’ is scheduled for a September 11th release.
