The HomeGround Audio Archive: 1978

The first year of Kate’s public career. Two albums and three singles. Many are still saying “What the hell …?”

Be warned. The audio quality of this early material is variable. For 1978 in particular we have only managed to gather a few fragments of what was extensive broadcast coverage, and many of these umpteenth generation copies of material originally recorded (most likely) by balancing a microphone against a decidedly low-fi transistor radio or TV. You get the full medium wave experience! These files are kept in the archive because they are precious survivals of material that has not (yet) appeared in a better format. Audio files of poor quality are marked * or **.
