Another song by Bruce Springsteen - involving both trying to be a "Hero" and having to "Travel" to do it. I'm posting this in both threads. 

 

I Came For You - this version is Manfred Mann's Earth Band: https://youtu.be/2sJygu903kU

Yeah! I have both record set too! I also got the third best two lp set, "The Concert for Bangledesh". I saw the movie on JCS and the play. We saw "Bangledesh" concert movie many times, cause in a way it was one of the first movie/video concerts. Harrison played many a song from the "ATMP" in that movie. A great time that was. Interesting that Murray Head would surface later with the "decadent" ,One Night In Bangkok recording later in the 70's.

Great add! I was in high school when this came out. The Monday after it went on sale my religion teacher brought a record player and the box set into class. We spent four days listening to it and discussing it. I asked my parents for two albums for Christmas, that year. This, and "All Things Must Pass". I got them both.

The song and the album Heroes Are Hard to Find - Fleetwood Mac

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIARC-2ji6I

 

A nice song and album, all around (1974)

 

Edit:   That was the last album with Bob Welch and just before Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks

My very favorite version of Heroes by David Bowie is the English-German version, with a video extracted from a German movie "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo" about a young girl's true story of falling to heroin addiction.

Edit:  my German co-worker was astonished when I asked him about the movie a couple years back. He was astonished that anyone here in the US had even heard of the movie. Made me happy to see him so excited about this.
