Heroes - Max's, NYC 6-26-81 (w/Walter Lure)

After The Heartbreakers split at the end of 1977, Walter Lure played and recorded through the late 1970s and early 1980s with several bands including The Blessed and The Incognitos. Two songs he recorded in 1978 (Seven Day Weekend and Too Much Junkie Business) didn't get released on vinyl until 1983 under the band name The Heroes which at the time was his current band. The Heroes of 1983 never released anything but someone was nice enough to to make this audience recording of one of their gigs. A few Heartbreakers songs are played, a couple of covers and a pile of new songs, some of which were only released in the 1990s on the Waldos Rent Party CD and others remain unreleased. The band: Walter Lure - Guitar & Vocals, Richie Lure - Guitar & Vocals, Danny - Bass, Billy Rogers - Drums.

  1. Hey mate! Thanks for your good words and thanks also for putting my link on this post. I'm looking forward to hear these boots. Hope they got good sound cause I'm very curious to hear the Heroes playing live.

  2. Mihaleez, The sound quality I forgot to mention in my post is an audience recording but is very good and listenable. Unfortunately, this may be the only recording of the Heroes in action so until Mr. Lure opens up his tape archive, this may be all we get. It's one of my favorite live shows, though, and I'm sure you will enjoy. Cheers!

  3. Thank you for this, and btw I love Wilkie Collins and the Ipress File too.

  4. Thanks a lot for sharing this rare tape whit Walter & friends.
