Steve Harley On BBC Radio 2: “Kate’s Recording As We Speak”

Steve HarleyOn his weekly BBC Radio 2 show “Sounds Of The Seventies” last week, Steve Harley played Wow by Kate, introducing the song with “there are even those who dont go too big on Kate Bush, I pity them”. After the song he casually mentioned: “I saw Kate Bush a few weeks ago, and I am pleased to say she is recording as we speak. My drummer Stuart Elliot is playing on the album and says she is bang on form”.  You may still be able to catch a recording of the show at his website here. (thanks to Linda on the guestbook.) Here’s this entry on Steve from the excellent Gaffaweb dictionary: “Leader of the group Cockney Rebel, in a less well known credit Harley also provided vocals for the first version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical The Phantom Of The Opera. Having donated half of Cockney Rebel to the recording of the album The Kick Inside, Harley further gave of himself on 12 May 1979 by appearing at a benefit concert at the Hammersmith Odeon in memory of the late Bill Duffield, with whom Harley had worked in the past.”
