Performers, Cast and Crew:
This comprehensive retrospective casts a critical spotlight on a major milestone in the career of beloved musician Kate Bush: the 1985 release of her widely popular album THE HOUNDS OF LOVE. The era and the album itself, which stands in stark contrast to much of the forgettable pop music of the mid-1980s, are analyzed via interviews and archival footage.
It's been dubbed the decade that taste forgot, but to suggest the 1980s didn't have its fair share of exceptional music is folly indeed. And virtually none was as exceptional as that which came from Kate Bush. Kate's 1985 album The Hounds Of Love was more than just exceptional however; one could certainly use that accolade in describing her four previous and all subsequent records, but Hounds Of Love was exquisite - for many quite simply the best album ever made! This film puts Hounds Of Love under the microscope and with the aid of musicians who played on the album, Kate's biographer, journalists Kris Needs and Lucy O'Brien, musicologist Chris Ingham and a host of other contributors, the story behind the album's build-up, production, release, impact and legacy is told here in full. FEATURES include: Live and studio versions of every track on the album, review / critique and comment on each song, behind the scenes - the recording, archive interviews with Kate speaking at the time about the record and its creation, the first ever airing of the legendary 'Kris Needs Zig-Zag Interview' recording, Kate's only given music press interview at the release of the album, and more.
