There are hundreds (if not thousands) of promotional photos of Kate floating about online from every aspect of her career, but apart from when a new album is released, it’s very unusual to see a whole bunch of them appear that most fans are not familiar with. Very recently, almost 30 shots of Kate, reportedly from her Spring 1978 trip to Holland, have surfaced (thanks to Asmoday on our site forum and to goldduststevie for sharing). See them here.

Very much of their time, they are nonetheless striking “new” images of a legendary artist just setting out on her journey…

    These have aged so well, and that’s saying something given the styles of the period. She looks fantastic.

    #9 looks familiar and was probably used in Dutch magazines at the time. #11 was most probably taken at De Efteling.

    Timeless beauty. Few women have it – and it’s something we can all treasure.

    Thanks for posting these treasures! Some of them were published, definitely the one of KB in red boots on the stairs.

    However, one of the “oriental look” pics made me grin like an idiot – I am refering to the one that shows Kate’s ankles still revealing the marks of (tight) socks on the skin. I guess today these would just be photoshopped away, but I think it’s a funny and endearing detail.

    The following hearldScotland news article from the internet about Kate Bush: “Not Fade Away 1993:Moment so Pleasure by Kate Bush” Monday 13, January 2014. Teddy Jamieson hearldScotland. The piece is well thought out, rich in contemplative address, to Kate Bush and her music. Particularly in regards to the song Moments of Pleasure. Probably the best piece written in the news media so far in regards to 2013 as well as 2014 or years before 2013. The article also is a good piece in consideration of exploring the artistic and sensitive facets of Kate Bush’s creative nature. From the personal point of view of the author in relationship to Kate Bush. In any case it is definitely a worthwhile read and the Jamieson article can be found on the internet.

    Good lord, Kate’s looks alone are enough to render anyone speechless… combined with her genius storytelling and voice from god, it’s almost too much to comprehend. We’re forever blessed.
