King Crimson‘s Heroes EP was recorded live on the band’s European tour of 2016. The title track sees Robert Fripp reprise the unforgettable guitar role he created for the original David Bowie studio recording in the same city in 1977 (particularly poignant in the year of Bowie‘s death).
The EP also features a ten minute recording of Easy Money, an edited (song section) version of Starless, a ‘radio edit‘ of Heroes, and a recording of the three drummers‘ showpiece The Hell Hounds of Krim. All are previously unreleased live recordings. ‘King Crimson performed Heroes at the Admiralspalast in Berlin as a celebration, a remembrancing and an homage. The concert was thirty-nine years and one month after the original sessions at the Hansa Tonstudio overlooking the Berlin Wall. This is released in the Fortieth Anniversary year.‘ Robert Fripp, Wednesday 22nd. February, 2017; DGM HQ, Wiltshire, England.
