    Breaking down David Bowie's 'Heroes' - Track-by-track


    Producer Tony Visconti uses the original master tapes from sessions at Hansa Studio in Berlin to get to the heart of the title track from 'Heroes', one of David Bowie’s best-loved songs.

    We hear the song built up by individual contributions, including those from guitarist Robert Fripp, Brian Eno's 'synthesiser in a briefcase' and of course David Bowie's powerful, harshly emotional vocal.

    This film with Tony Visconti is an extended version of that on the BBC Four programme Music Moguls: Melody Makers. It closes with the iconic music video for 'Heroes', directed in 1977 by Stanley Dorfman.
    Release date:
    20 January 2016
    Duration:

    21 minutes

Are they Tom Scholtz-style perfectionists that would spend weeks taking the effect off and putting the effect right back on?
