Not really the whole story, of course. More like 'the story so far', as at the end of the first decade of her three decade career.
Kate had an astonishing debut. On her first television appearance, singing Wuthering Heights, she was shaking with stage fright. Also, for the time, she cut a rather bizarre (though very attractive) figure, as she used the mime training she had received at school to perform slow, graceful movements as an accompaniment to her very novel song. She became an overnight star. She was treated seriously from the start, giving art-program interviews rather than the usual pop DJ stuff. She has remained an enigmatic and revered figure, on the fringes of the pop scene, ever since, ploughing her own deep furrow.
The version of Wuthering Heights on this album has a new vocal, with a cleaner, clearer sound. At the time, there was much discussion on what the song was actually about. So to that extent, this is 'the story so far, retold'.
It is a story worth catching up with, because Kate is a unique and special talent, with an extraordinary vocal range. This is music to be sat and carefully listened to. The music owes more to imaginative and lush production rather than melodic strength, and the lyrics, on close inspection, are often facile and sometimes rather portentous. But the complete package is always impressive. The lyrics are available online and it increases your appreciation greatly if you have them to hand while listening. As they are all story-based, you get even more out of them if you watch the videos, but I couldn't find many of her videos on DVD. If you can find Babooshka on DVD, see it. It's wonderfully erotic.
