Kate Bush

Both have their perks, she sounds more witchy and conniving on the original, whereas the re-record sounds more like she is so deeply in love she is losing her marbles. Like others have mentioned the wailing at the end of the '86 version edges it sometimes.

It would be so different but I'd kill to hear her take on it now.
 
The last copy of The Whole Story I saw on CD in HMV was all pixelated on the back, including the writing - looked like a nasty pirate copy, and so cheap. Not sure KB would approve!
 
REUPLOAD EXPERIMENT IV ON STREAMING

I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if her whole catalogue disappears from streaming one day.
Hopefully I'm wrong and this is a sign of new archival compilations or something similar.
 
Does this mean anything or is it just Kate being Kate? From the hidden page on the Katebush.com landing page (click the O in Fish People on the right hand side):
Fish People were a civilisation which became lost around 900 BC. Little is known about them other than they walked out from the seas onto the land one day when no-one was looking. It is believed that they were centuries ahead of their time. Their culture was not defined by wealth or social status and they abolished all violence as they believed in the harmony of nature and the equality of all oceans.

Their mystical language was thought to originate from The Tethys Trench. They could speak simultaneously to all aquatic creatures and to most of the humans in the Western Hemisphere. There were certain frequencies in their language that could only be understood by small crustaceans and very young children.

The full meaning of where their distinctive letterforms came from, has been lost. Many believe that these originated from the complex migrational paths of birds and a cellular-level understanding of the underwater mammals that had moved around them.

Fish People were said to have walked back into the seas one night when everyone was having dinner and it was foretold that they would again return to land when their teachings would be needed to heal a wounded world.
 
I remember reading a rumour online years ago that Kate‘s next project had an Ocean / Atlantis theme?
The whole Fish People back story reminded me of this, plus it would look great on a theatre stage…wink wink
But who knows what she’s been up to, Kate is very good at keeping things under wraps.

This was from when she announced the tour in 2014 and her entire back catalogue sold out immediately, when they turned up in store again The Whole Story quality was poor, definitely rushed just to get them on the shelves.
 
If The Whole Story is what sells the fastest when there's an announcement/viral moment (as it happened with Stranger things last year), it really doesn't make sense for it to be taken off streaming.

Exactly. Can only really hope that this means an updated remastered Greatest Hits is coming. Which, lets face it, it totally long overdue. But then again, seeing as it's Kate...
 
Running Up That Hill has been shortlisted in the ''most performed song'' category at this year's Ivor Novello Awards....

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-65314403
What a weird category. How can there be a shortlist for most performed song? Do the maths, find the song performed the most and declare it the winner. They seem to have the 5 most performed songs and will pick the one they like the most?

Besides, I thought Ivor Novello was about song writing.
