David Bowie – Beauty And The Beast (Picture Disc- 7" Single)
Limited seven-inch picture disc vinyl pressing featuring a previously unreleased live version of the Heroes album track 'Blackout' recorded on the 16th May, 1978 at the Deutschlandhalle, Berlin. Originally released in the UK on 6th January, 1978, 'Beauty And The Beast' was the second single to be taken from the album Heroes, which was recorded at the legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin. King Crimson's Robert Fripp plays on the track and has claimed that the lead guitar used on 'Beauty And The Beast' was his first take having arrived directly at Hansa Studios from New York. David Bowie inhabited a very special world of extraordinary sounds and endless vision. Unwilling to stay on the treadmill of rock legend and avoiding the descent into ever demeaning and decreasing circles of cliché, Bowie wrote and performed what he wanted, when he wanted.
