It's just a bit cringe that now people think everyone who likes her likes her because of stranger things(now I know what the hipsters feel like liking people before they were popular) but if even 1/10 of these people become actual fans I'm happy. The 80s production sharp edges on drums etc have presumably been smoothed down a bit in remastering, more in keeping with the production of her later albums. It is a perfectly good remix for the radio/single, but loses some of the impact of the original album version. And though it may be her watershed moment, the album, its classic singles and accompanying videos are part of a conceptual cycle that would continue with her later, more underrated records, presenting further autobiographical subject matter, romantic imagery and studio wizardry.

Side 1, Big Sky has been changed, so it runs shorter I expect and fits on the remastered album better. Beautiful art with a wonderful story and endorsed by David Bowie whom, it’s safe to say, knew a thing or 2 about art. Interestingly, ‘The Big Sky’ is no longer indicated as the ‘single mix’ even though it must be, if they are using the 2018 version. The Studio Album has been fully remastered by Kate and James Guthrie and will be released for the first time in over 10 years in premium 180g Heavyweight vinyl. This was an artist whose musical and studio prowess, eccentric conceptions, artful persona and modern dance skills became increasingly honed and interdependent with each album, and by the 1980s, she had achieved considerable ascendency and chart success in the UK.Running Up That Hill' is obviously the highlight, and I'm not basing this solely on the fact it's her most well-known single! Esta remasterización es en 180 g y contieen un insert con las letras de las canciones y algunos datos técnicos de la grabación. The album spawned three other top 40 UK singles in ‘Cloudbusting’, ‘Hounds of Love’ and ‘The Big Sky’.

In a second accompanying video, Kate explains via on-screen text, that she was inspired to expand upon a piece of work she first created for a special War Child charity auction in 1994 (see our news item here on the original artworks). The Dreaming will be the second in the series of illustrated editions, also illustrated by Timorous Beasties. I already have most "classic Kate" originals but I wanted to add to my collection one or two of her very best albums in the newly remastered versions and this one definitely feels definitive. The exact wording is “We’ll be re-releasing the Hounds of Love album in special presentations of vinyl and CD later in the year.

Kate says: “The idea was to create a hybrid of an album and a piece of artwork you could hang on the wall. The color is absolutely gorgeous, the vinyl is almost perfectly flat, and the mastering is as good as it should be : clean and quiet. Greatly emboldened by the advances of the digital age, the ever-experimental Bush went one further, building a home studio and developing her latest new material to her satisfaction, subsequently dividing the end product into two distinctive sections.

I know that some Bush fans will argue Kate isn't pop, and is more alternative/art-rock/avant-garde and whatnot. I hope people genuinely get into her and listen to the kick inside, the dreaming, never for ever, etc and not just hounds of love purely because it's now stranger things merchandise. The first side of the album mark’s the heights of her commercial success whilst the second side explores darker concepts. It’s very exciting to see the resurgence of appreciation for the physical presence of albums released on vinyl. I’ve adored Kate for 45 years – and I love “Timorous Beasties” too – and the issue does look beautiful but I really cannot justify that kind of money on yet another version of “Hounds Of Love.

In 1993 Brian Eno asked Kate to contribute to an auction for War Child, and she came up with the idea of two identical box frames, each containing a flashing red LED with text on brass plaques). Release Date: 21st December Kate Bush has overseen these meticulously produced represses of her back catalogue. I want to see those ones sell like crazy so that means people genuinely like her and not just the show. We have a regular newsletter with the week’s new releases that goes out every Thursday or Friday too.

It's her most accessible pop album but the dreaming is her best art and wuthering heights is one of the best songs of all time. The Baskerville Edition is a gatefold vinyl presentation with entirely new artwork by Glasgow-based design studio Timorous Beasties (who delivered some of the illustrations for Before The Dawn). The site says that “the best way to charge this solar panel is in bright sunlight (but not with the vinyl LP, it might warp! Even under contemporaneous scrutiny, both parts, replete with layered electronic instrumentation, sound effects, and expressive yet refined vocal acrobatics, successfully cohere, and, if persevered with, the full measure still holds up and works incredibly well despite its ambitious structure.Side 2 is home to the conceptual The Ninth Wave which was performed live on stage in its entirety during Kate’s Hammersmith Odeon residency in 2014 and, from Kate’s back catalogue, only the 1986 hits compilation The Whole Story has sold more copies in the UK than Hounds Of Love. The title has received universal acclaim and has been enshrined into pop-culture history Q magazine readers voted Hounds of Love the 48th greatest album of all time, while two years later the same magazine placed it at number 20 in its list of the "100 Greatest British Albums Ever". Please note, I'm merely using Madonna as an example because she's the bestselling female artist of all time (for now); and Lady Gaga because she is the one to challenge that in recent years, and has accomplished so much!
