Review of I WANNA BE KATE

By Ken Richardson, Stereo Review's Sound & Vision, February/March 1999

I WANNA BE KATE: The Songs of Kate Bush
Brown Star
* * * (out of 4)

A few too many of the covers here simply duplicate Ethereal Kate (Susan Voelz's "The Sensual World," the Moviegoers' "Hounds of Love," Syd Straw's "The Man with the Child in His Eyes"). But the good stuff toys with Offbeat Kate: the J. Davis Trio turns "There Goes a Tenner" into a rap, Mouse ratchets up the guitars in "Coffee Homeground," and the Baltimores deconstruct and wackily reassemble "Running Up That Hill."
