Great '80's music videos from the Grande Dame of multimedia
Kate Bush, phenomenal British singer/songwriter/keyboardist, truly shines in this collection of music videos which span her career from her first hit (the ethereal "Wuthering Heights") through the pinnacle of her career (videos of several songs from the excellent "Hounds of Love" LP), and even includes a never-before-released song from that time period (the chilling "Experiment IV").
For those of you who don't know who Kate Bush is ... she's a soprano with a very mutable and expressive voice. Her songs tend to be very theatrical, and a lot of them seem to be sung from the point of view of fictional or semi-fictional characters. She frequently adopts accents (Aussie in "Dreamtime," Yorkshire [I think] in "Army Dreamers") to get into the character from whose viewpoint she has written.
A master of multimedia before the word existed, Kate Bush never, ever toured; aside from several performances at the Royal Albert Hall, years ago, she has very seldom performed live. Her videos are well developed and mesh well with her music, especially "Cloudbusting," which features a prominent role by Donald Sutherland!
Fans of Ms. Bush or slightly-out-of-mainstream '80's music will enjoy this a lot.
