Producer Tony Visconti On The Making Of David Bowie’s “Heroes”

“Heroes” is the twelfth studio album by David Bowie, released on RCA Records in October 1977. The second instalment of his “Berlin Trilogy” recorded with Brian Eno and Tony Visconti, “Heroes” continued the ambient experiments of Bowie’s previous album Low (released earlier that year) and featured the contributions of guitarist Robert Fripp. Of the three albums, it was the only one wholly recorded in Berlin. Named NME’s Album Of The Year, co-producer Tony Visconti considered it “one of my last great adventures in making albums. The studio was about 500 yards from the Berlin Wall. Red Guards would look into our control-room window with powerful binoculars.”
