Some people who contact the site wonder when they’ll ever see a Kate album in the charts again. How about next week? Here’s some interesting chart news from Matt Hutchinson: “Keep an eye on this Sunday’s album chart, Kate could be about to feature! The Whole Story is subject to some heavy discounting at the moment (mainly at HMV). As a result the album has spent the last 6 weeks hanging around the lower end of the top 200 albums chart. But for some reason this week she is selling even more, and looking at today’s mid week chart she has moved from number 113 up to number 72. Nearly 1200 copies of the album have been sold so far this week, easily ahead of recent releases by such acts as Geri Halliwell, Hearsay and Tori Amos! Not bad for an album that is about to celebrate its 15th birthday.” (thanks Matt)
In a related newsbit: Caroline Corr (of The Corrs) was asked on the Mojo magazine website: “What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favourite album?”, she replied: “The one I listen to most is Kate Bush’s The Whole Story”.
