12 Songs, 48 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

More than just a singles compilation, The Whole Story is a concise summation of Kate Bush's early years. Forgoing the usual chronological order, these 12 songs range from the stark piano ballad "The Man with the Child in His Eyes" to the transcendent, swirling rush of "Running Up That Hill." The new tracks—the mid-'80s psychedelia of the science fiction-tinged "Experiment IV" and a remix of Bush's debut hit, "Wuthering Heights" with a new, throatier, more mature lead vocal—are simply magical.

Dont Forget the Newer Stuff !!!

Kate's upcoming shows in August 2014 seem to be giving this compilation a new lease of life.

Its an excellent summary of her work up to Hounds of Love and includes all the songs that people immediately associate with her (Wuthering Heights, Babooshka, Running up That Hill).

Dont leave it there though. The albums that followed - The Sensual World, The Red Shoes, Aerial and 50 Words for Snow are all brilliant and well worth a listen.
