Kate Bush, On Stage (1979)
I found this at the record shop one day. A good find, this. It wasn’t that I was even looking for it – really. I’ve got everything Kate Bush has released – most of it on vinyl too. But I’ll do that thing, still, where if I want to know how good a record shop is I’ll go to a section and look up an artist and hope to find all the records I already own. It’s a strange practice but I don’t think I’m alone in doing this; you hope – in some way – the good taste you think you have is reflected in the stores where you choose to browse, listen and shop. That’s a very old-school way of thinking, but it’s crucial to how I view a record store. And if shopping in a record shop isn’t a very old-school way of thinking/living then I don’t know what is. What I do know is that it was a very good day when I found this EP. I didn’t expect to see it. And there it was. Right in the middle of all those other great Kate Bush albums I already owned. I like this EP too; if for no other reason than the fact it accurately portrays/sums up Kate’s interest/commitment to playing live: one EP’s worth from her entire career.
