Looking and sounding better than ever, Songs for Heroes has been remastered, repackaged and reissued to celebrate Rattle's first 20-years as NZ’s pre-eminent art-music label. One of the most successful of all FROM SCRATCH recordings, the instruments have great presence and weight, and the passion and commitment in the music is palpable.
"Remember to remember to remember to remember Heroes who tamed tigers"
"There's an old saying that 'once on the tiger's back, there is no getting off'. Good Listening."
