Kate Bush / remastered albums

Four vinyl box sets • Two CD box sets •  Remasters • Four discs of rarities

Kate Bush will release remastered versions of all her studio albums, along with selected rarities, on CD and vinyl, in a series of box sets next month.

In total there will be four vinyl box sets and two CD boxes. Initially, two vinyl boxes and the first of the two CD boxeswill be released on 16 November. These cover the albums The Kick Inside (1978), Lionheart (1978), Never For Ever (1980), The Dreaming (1982), Hounds of Love (1985), The Sensual World (1989) and The Red Shoes (1993).

Then, on 30 November, two further vinyl boxes and the second of the two CD boxes will be released. These complete the studio albums – Aerial (2005), Director’s Cut (2011), 50 Words For Snow (2011) – and bring together rarities including 12-inch mixes, B-sides and covers. In total, there are 18 vinyl records across the four vinyl box sets and 18 CDs across the two CD boxes


The first of two CD boxes contain Kate’s remastered catalogue

The only difference I can make out in the content is that the CD box sets contains the Before The Dawn live album, while that album is not included in any of the vinyl box sets. All the audio has been remastered by Kate and James Guthrie except for Before The Dawn which is the original mastering.

There are four discs of rarities (full track listing below): 12″ mixes, two discs of B-sides and covers. This does not look complete by any means, since there are extended mixes from The Red Shoes era missing, B-sides like ‘Not This Time’ and ‘Dreamtime’ are AWOL, there’s no instrumental of ‘Running Up That Hill’, no ‘video mix’ of ‘Cloudbusting’ and various other omissions. Full analysis will follow.

As stated above, the first two vinyl box sets and the first CD box are released on 16 November, with the remainder following on 30 November. The albums are also being released separately, but not the four rarities discs in the boxes (what did you expect?). If you are in the UK then HMV have some box sets listed with some bundle discounts.
