I have to admit I had pretty low expectations of this CD book.
So I wasnt surprised when I felt disappointed.
The research has not been particularly thorough. Just buy a few books... watch all the videos you can get your hands on and you have all this information.
What annoys me is that they didnt bother giving us anything new.. and infact what really riled me they couldnt be bothered to get the facts straight. No stronger point than when they mention "The Infant Kiss" (song inspired by "The innocents" Starring Deborah Kerr,a screen adaptation of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw) ... their comment "this is a song about a woman who falls in love with a baby" is entirely inacurate and strongly misrepresents what the song is about.
There are snipets of Kate Bush from various interviews... though she sounds like she has been recorded direct from the radio.
On the positive.. if you buy this knowing absolutely nothing about Kate Bush.. you will learn quite a bit.... though I am not sure what Kate herself would feel about it.
The negative... I got the feeling that this is a business venture (fair enough I guess) .. I would have prefered to have someone narrate this with enthusiasm, caring and love, not by someone who is just getting on the Kate Bush bandwagon.
The sound track that drones on in the background made me want to self harm by the end of it. I can only guess that even had they considered using a Kate Bush number for the back ground music that she would have declined.
I think there are a lot of Kate Bush fans out there that will feel quite angry about this CD.
I for one, do not recommend it..

This CD is described as an 'interview' disc. BEWARE! This is misleading. Out of the 66 minutes' duration, only about 6 minutes are actual taped excerpts from her interviews. The other 60 minutes consists of an unauthorised biog recited over some bland and monotonous electronically-produced music repeated AD NAUSEUM. The disc's 12 'tracks' are artificial divisions. There is no gap between them: the reader Nancy McClean is competent but the continuous text and relentless background soundtrack detract from the biography itself. While there are some interesting points from a biographical point of view, the analyses of Kate's albums are banal and superficial.
Those new to Kate's work may find this CD informative, but staunch fans should avoid this! It is an embarassment!

I didn't know much about Kate Bush until I bought this recording. I had bought Aerial and enjoyed it, and wanted to know a bit more about her. This is a talking book telling the story of Kate Bush from the start of her career to the present day. There are some clips of Kate giving her views on her music too. I found it enjoyable to listen to!

I have been a big fan of Kate’s music since the late 70s. I purchased this CD not knowing what was on it. It is a biography of Kate’s career and it contains some interview clips of her talking about her music. It is informative although it contains none of her music. I think it’s worth buying and listening too if you are a fan. I enjoyed this CD, and would recommend it to any Kate Bush fan.
