About this Episode

In this episode of #JCsMusicology, we explore the enigmatic Kate Bush's work before her first hiatus.

After the release of "Hounds of Love", which is often regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time, Kate Bush would continue to develop as an artist with her follow-up album, "The Sensual World". After a four year gap, "The Red Shoes" would follow. In 2011, selections from each album would be re-recorded to create "Directors Cut", a cohesive album, that stands on it's own.

Only a genius like Kate Bush could so sucessfully execute such an exentric project.
