    I'm mostly just excited to have all of Kate's albums in two easy-to find (in my house!) box sets.

    of course the bonus discs are not truly exhaustive but still nice to have a good uniform collection.

    and yet, in my experience, people who like pop don't enjoy her music, but people who like prog do. (at least here in the states)

    ^^ On the other hand I have a friend who likes pop but not most prog and is a big Kate Bush fan. I'm more of a prog fan but am not a fan of her music.

    I'm using pop and prog in the limited sense as genres that most people recognize it, not in the overall sense that everything that is not Classical is Pop.

    was it really so important for you to state your opinion of how you categorize Kate's music?

    ok, if you are 12 years old you're excused
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    THE OTHER SIDE 1

    Walk Straight Down The Middle
    You Want Alchemy
    Be Kind To My Mistakes
    Lyra
    Under The Ivy
    Experiment IV
    Ne T’Enfuis Pas
    Un Baiser D’Enfant
    Burning Bridge
    Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) 2012 Remix

    THE OTHER SIDE 2

    Home For Christmas
    One Last Look Around The House Before We Go
    I’m Still Waiting
    Warm And Soothing
    Show A Little Devotion
    Passing Through Air
    Humming
    Ran Tan Waltz

    I have many of these but it would be nice to have them collected together and remastered on 2 discs

    Yes, those other sides would be nice to have. I guess it's the vinyl set I will have to buy then.

    Man, I wish those B-sides and extras were split up by era instead of tacked onto the second box. If those aren't offered seperately, I'll be a sad boy, I don't have a strong desire to have remasters of albums that sound fine as is.

    Re: Steve Wilson, in a recent TV interview, he said that he would love to tackle remixing Kate's catalog. Looks like he missed the boat!

    I'm with you on this one. I was thinking I might be persuaded if the box wasn't too expensive, but I'm not going to fork out the 99.99 they're asking for it.

    I ordered both CD boxes from Amazon UK. The first box says #1 Bestseller - good for you, Kate! Will be interesting to see if the prices on these change at all. That artwork for the boxes is pretty strange, unless it's just placeholder art. Fits in with the "Fish People" look, but pretty random really. Whatever, I'll just be glad to have these all since for some stupid reason I sold off some of my original KB CDs back in the 90s.

    I have most of the B-sides/Extras stuff, but I would have bought a set that was separate from the later albums. Oh well...

    I am so, so very into this. 4 vinyl boxsets, here I come.

    He said in an interview that she turned him down.

    James Guthrie is listed as 'Sound Consultant, Mastering' on 'Before The Dawn', which does not fill me with hope, irrespective of his other accomplishments.

    She lurks on the Hoffman forums and took their criticisms to heart.

    I guess Kate was only interested in remastering her albums, rather than letting SW or someone else re-mix them. Maybe he costs more than she was willing to pay. By the way, James Guthrie was the go-to sound engineer for PF & RW for years, whatever that's worth.

    I had preordered these both from Amazon.co.uk, and then today got a sort of weird email saying they had a further price reduction if you ordered both together, but to get that reduction (a little less than a 15 UK pound reduction) I'd need to cancel my order and place a new one. Amazon.co.uk is supposed have the price guarantee, so I have no idea why they'd require this. I tried creating a new order for these and it WASN'T giving me that extra discount! Anyway, I then checked and Amazon.com now has these for preorder, and with Amazon Prime the cost is only like $2 more than what I would have paid Amazon.co.uk but I'll get them sooner.

    But that email seemed weird. I looked at the links in the email and they don't seem fraudulent. If anyone places a new preorder for these from Amazon.co.uk I'd be interested to know if it does somehow give you that extra discount. Maybe it only happens AFTER you place the order?

    I had a look and if I order Vol 1 and 2 together, I save 14.99 (for a total of 139.99). Or I can pre-order all four vinyl sets and save 34.97 (324.99).

    CD box 1 arriving tomorrow!

    Man though, the cover art for the boxes looks godawful! I wish she or whoever had thought a bit about what her fans would want. They seem really ugly and random.
