    This was a lovely listen, reminding me of all the excitement of seeing Kate on the television over that December 1979…

    I delayed going out to a Christmas party the night the TV Special was on- it was something I just couldn’t miss in those days before video recorders existed. And I got rid of mum and dad to another room; I couldn’t risk any unwanted comments or interruptions.

    Such gems: the bat wings for Violin we’d get to see again one day on the back cover of Never For Ever, that beautiful rendition of Symphony In Blue, hearing December Will Be Magic Again again, so soon after we’d seen her writhing up and down a wicker chair in her red silk pyjamas, registering instantly that this was a different version, the extra bar introduced in Man With The Child In His Eyes, wondering why it wasn’t played on the record we’d played again and again, and her cardigan… Only Kate would sit at a piano and sing in her cardigan!

    December certainly was magic that year…
