    I would really like that EMI Odeon released a dvd…. with so much musical material and videos what are they waiting for……????

  2. I’m personally not a fan of this DVD. For an independent critical analysis of Kate’s career, it comes off more as a self indulgent load of garbage by the people that are featured in the “interview” segments. They seemed to enjoy the sound of their own mouths wagging, chewing over Kate’s entire career, and I was left feeling as though I was at a boring seminar, listening to a very long-winded speech, which I couldn’t wait to be over.

    I did like the interview segments with Morris Pert, who was a session musician on The Kick Inside. However, the real shame lies in the fact that his “bits” of interview were fairly short, and completely overshadowed by the other long-winded interviews that made up a huge part of this DVD. He had some really nice things to say about Kate, which I enjoyed hearing. Too bad there wasn’t more of his interview included as it might have made it more worthwhile… and viewable.

    The DVD also makes use of a lot of video and interview clips throughout the years, up until ‘King of the Mountain’, but there really isn’t anything special on here that you can’t already find online.

    Even though it’s not an official DVD, or authorized by Kate, I feel they missed a great opportunity to do something a little more interesting than what was presented. I realize the intention was a ‘Critical Analysis’, but I also feel that the interview segments are filled with people that are so hung up on themselves that they can’t get past their own self-importance.

    Overall, it would probably suit a new fan as an introduction to Kate and her music, but there isn’t really anything here for long-term fans. In my opinion, this DVD was sold on two facts: It’s Kate Bush and it’s a DVD release. The content is another story altogether. If I lost this DVD tomorrow, I probably wouldn’t care.

    Maybe if EMI got off their butts and released an official collection of her videos on DVD/Blu Ray, they could kill the bootleg market. Its obvious there is a demand out there and my VHS’ are wearing thin….

    I totally agree with Miss Moneypenny. Does anybody know anything regarding an official EMI DVD/BluRay-release of her marvellous videos???

    Years ago, I had a LasweDisc player, and owned a disc of Kate Bush videos (I believe it was called The Whole Story)…Of course I got rid of the LD player at some point and the discs, too; I really wish that video was available on DVD, at least.
