We asked Kate Bush if she would come and sing on it and she agreed – she was just amazing.” Kate recalled in a KBC newsletter at the time: “They were lovely to work with – I really enjoyed it. They asked if I’d like to do some backing vocals and I went in for an evening. They were really nice.” Adamson and his band had a string of hits in the 1980s including Look Away, Wonderland, In a Big Country and Fields of Fire.
