Every week for 10 weeks I feature a Kate Bush album. (Ever since her comeback tour this summer). Today it was Album number 7 called Aerial. Aerial was Bush’s first double album, and was released after a twelve-year absence from the music industry during which Bush devoted her time to family and the raising of her son.  Aerial entered the UK Albums Chart at number three, selling more than 90,000 copies in its first week on release. Songs I chose were

Kate Bush – King of the Mountain
Kate Bush – Bertie
