5.0 out of 5 stars Kate in '79 - Stunning !, 29 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kate Bush - Live At Hammersmith Odeon 1979 (DVD)
As one of her singles says,'Wow!'...been awaiting this on DVD for YEARS having played the VHS 'Kate Bush at Hammersmith Odeon' to death....(and no longer having a VHS player...) amazing EMI haven't capitalised on this. Anyway, this ISN'T the Hammersmith Odeon concert.. it's rather better, with addition tracks like 'Here Comes the Flood'...'December will be Magic Again' 'The Wedding List', and 'Egypt' - otherwise it's much the same as the London gig. You have to see this to realise how revolutionary this stage show was in l979...I remember sitting near the front and was lost for words at the choreography and sound - no idea where this was recorded.. looks as if some at Hammersmith...some elsewhere...but it hangs together well. If you've seen the Hammersmith VHS, you'll know what to expect from 'The Man with the Child in his Eyes' through to 'Oh England, my Lionheart and 'Wuthering Heights'.....but the 'extra' tracks make it an extra delight! SO glad I can now 'preserve' this ! Its memories are irreplaceable....as is the performance - if you've forgotten just how brilliant this girl was , watch this...and be dazzled. She only made the one tour....and the material here has never been bettered. No information on the packaging about where it was recorded....or the musicians....but just be grateful SOMEBODY has put these gems together on one DVD...NO reservations...5 stars PLUS!
