About this deal

What he created firmly resonated with Bush’s inner world, echoing the artistic influences she held dear. Similarly, ‘The Wedding List’ was influenced by François Truffaut’s 1968 film The Bride Wore Black, a revenge film featuring a widow who murders the man who accidentally shot her husband on her wedding day. Based largely on this album, Bush was voted "Best female artist of 1980" in polls taken in Melody Maker, Sounds, the Sunday Telegraph, and Capital Radio.

Delius (song of the summer)- here we have a quirky and unusual song which is pure and exceptional as it links directly from the concluding 'shatter glass' verse of Babooshka and then it turns into summery sounds and backing vocals which makes this a very memorable song indeed. I have to admit, I'm totally biased towards Kate Bush, having every album she's produced on Vinyl, CD and MP3. Blow Away (for Bill)" commemorates her lighting director Bill Duffield, killed in an accident at Poole Arts Centre during her 1979 tour. However; the other Single featured on this Album: 'Army Dreamers' I was not so keen on, but I would say on the original vinyl LP that Side Two is probably the stronger one of the two. By extension, the cover art features a striking design that reflects the creative essence of the album and all of its messy yet stunning inclinations.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Her gothic and even extreme inspirations are intrinsic to her artistry, proving once again that Bush was the true torchbearer of art-rock and experimentalism, using the macabre to go against what was expected of women artists of the era.

Her sound has always been too notch from the beginning and I’m glad she’s now getting the recognition she deserves. Over the following week, Bush undertook a record signing tour of the UK including London, which resulted in lengthy queues down Oxford Street. Never For Ever" is another Kate Bush masterpiece that, in hindsight, bridges "Lionheart" and her next album "The Dreaming", containing elements from both. already this is one of my favourite albums of all time after owning it for just a week, Kate is that sort of artist.Beginning production after her 1979 tour, Never for Ever was Bush's second foray into production (her first was for the On Stage EP the previous year), aided by the engineer of Lionheart (1978), Jon Kelly. Much like the album cover, which symbolises the diverse facets and emotions of life, ranging from the sombre to the radiant, the album’s sound, along with its title, Never For Ever, encapsulates the notion that this amalgamation and turbulence are all transient and that nothing endures eternally. This means that there isn't an immediate (ahem) 'Wow' factor, but the rewards become evident on repeated plays. It features the UK Top 20 singles 'Breathing', 'Army Dreamers' and 'Babooshka', the latter being one of Bush's biggest hits.

The true highlights of this album are the lilting waltz of Army Dreamers, as well as Breathing, a song about an unborn baby who reports on a nuclear holocaust from within its mother's womb. The project serves as the quintessential example of using music as a conduit for fantastical storytelling, illustrating the conflicting forces of good and evil that manifest within us and how these entities present themselves to the external world. This remaster is surprisingly warm sounding for a cd, and gives a little extra punch/oomph where needed, without spoiling the original sound balance. Of the concept, Bush said that it reflects the title, depicting good and bad things that emerge from one's self.

After the Show, and when my mother turned up at the house to collect me some time later, my Granny (quite distressed) was full of: 'you should have been here (to my mother) it's been terrible! She was very old (being born in Victorian Times) and knew little of Pop Music, but she was startlingly aware of a 'Ms. overall Never For Ever is one of the mst epic albums Kate has done and one of my top 25 favorites, a must for everyone. It was also the first album by a female British solo artist to top the UK Albums Chart and the first album by any female solo artist to enter the chart at number one.

There's a much more 'solid' feel to this version, that feels like the original vinyl being played on a VERY good system - the glass breaking/windows opening aren't any more shocking or trebley, but the songs have more 'body' (if that makes sense) and the bass is much more defined - you can really hear Giblin's strings vibrating on 'Breathing' in particular. It was Bush's first number 1 album and was also the first ever album by a British female solo artist to top the UK Albums Chart. In incandescent clarity, multiple voices and full dynamics they present the artist's unhindered, unmasked voice.

According to Bush, the title alluded to conflicting emotions, good and bad, which pass, as she stated: "we must tell our hearts that it is 'never for ever', and be happy that it's like that". Never for Ever was the first Kate Bush album to feature digital synthesizers and drum machines, in particular the Fairlight CMI, [5] which was programmed by Richard James Burgess and John L.
