27) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Kate Bush-'The Sensual World'
In the late 80's I saw the movie "She's Having
A Baby" and first heard the song "This Woman's Work".
I thought this was the first time that I had heard the wonderful voice
of Kate Bush. It turns out that I had heard her first single "Wuthering
Heights" when I was a small child, and I had heard "Running
Up That Hill" on MTV just a couple of years prior. I just didn't
know who it was at that time. When 'The Sensual World' was released,
I was working at a music store in a what is now a vacant mall. I listened
to it a couple of times, and I would have to say that I was intrigued
and a little bit frightened. This was back when I was trying to find
new bands in the middle of all the crap MTV was throwing at me. "Is
this woman's voice supposed to sound that wild, and am I supposed to
like this? It seems so different and strange." David Gilmour of
Pink Floyd plays on this album, and when this album was new I was already
a huge Floyd fan. (I would find out later on that Mr. Gilmour was responsible
for getting Kate her first record contract with EMI.) His presence on
the album made me purchase this record, but now well into the first
decade of the 21st century, and I would consider Kate Bush to be one
of the greatest artists of our time. I would never pass up new material
from her, and her most recent album, "Aerial", was my favorite
album of 2005. It's been a couple of years since I played an album by
her, and it's about time I played another. I've already played my two
favorite albums by Kate, and I'll play the double album "Aerial"
during some future summertime when all the kids are away from the studio.
Possibly the most beautiful woman in rock music, ever. Possibly the
greatest female singer in my world of great music. "What would
we do without you?"
