This new episode of The Kate Bush Fan Podcast is the third and final installment from Bush Telegraph celebrating the 40th anniversary of The Dreaming – arguably, Kate Bush’s most forward-thinking album. Paul and Darrell introduce this episode, and then Darrell chats with Nick Launay, Kate’s prolific engineer at Townhouse Studios. His collaboration with Kate created a synergy of ideas that ended up on this iconic album. Exclusive stories are heard on this podcast, where we get an expanded view of how these almost operatic tracks were produced, including more details of the title track. As an added bonus, we also get to hear how ‘Lord Of The Reedy River’ (b-side to the first single ‘Sat In Your Lap’) was recorded next to a dank pool under the studio floorboards. And if that doesn’t whet your appetite, which we’re sure it will, find out who Kate nearly recorded a duet with. Thanks again to Nick Launay, also known for his work with other great artists such as Nick Cave, Public Image Ltd., Lou Reed, Talking Heads and Arcade Fire.
