Then one of the later 1975 recordings (again paid for my Gilmore) at AIR studios - again 3 tracks were recorded - 'The Man With the Child in His Eyes', 'The Saxophone Song' and another lost track - the first two are on The Kick Inside
Then a track from 'The Kick Inside' - for sheer drama, perhaps the title track (she learnt early on how to close an album)
From 'Lionheart', it's probably best to chose one of her best lyrics as the production and playing is quite muted - 'Oh England My Lionheart' clearly meant a lot as she hand wrote the lyrics for the album lyric sheet
Then at least one track from her 'Lionheart Tour' (no one called it 'Tour of Life' at the time) - the obvious ones are the rockers like 'Don't Push Your Foot on the Heartbrake' or 'James and the Cold Gun' but for atmosphere nothing beats 'Feel It' or even 'Symphony in Blue' : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_lxF2Hd1N8
I'd choose another B-side to show off her astonishing range at this point in her career: 'The Empty Bullring' or 'Warm and Soothing'
For 'The Dreaming' and its bugged out weirdness, 'Get Out of My House' not least for the sound of Kate braying like a donkey
You could keep the country happy by playing the whole of 'Hounds of Love' but it'd have to be 'Hello Earth' - a lullaby for planet earth and perhaps the best example of her vision of existence
I'd love to hear the 'Alternative Hounds of Love' as well - released as a 12 inch single, but a complete new vocal and a marvellous example of her vocal strength.
Perhaps play one of her many late 80s collaborations 'Sister and Brother' by Midge Ure is rather nice
Another lovely B-side is 'Be Kind to My Mistakes' from Nic Roeg's film 'Castaway' (which Kate considered appearing in - until she learnt Oliver Reed was in it)
From 'Sensual World', it'd be great to hear 'Rocket's Tale' for the wonderful sound of Kate harmonising with the Trio Bulgarka
From the 1990s, there's not much really I'd like to hear - perhaps the setting of Debussy's Clair de Lune in the B-side 'You Want Alchemy' and her singing of 'Mná na hÉireann' on the LP Common Ground - though a few might enjoy her version of 'Sexual Healing' recorded in the 90s but released as a b-side to 'King of the Mountain'
Then probably a track from 'Aerial' - most likely 'Nocturn' which was one of the few tracks that wasn't better when she performed it live in 2014.
I never liked the original 'Rubberband Girl' but I thought the 2011 re-working with Danny Thompson on double bass and Kate trying to do a 'Exile on Main Street' Rolling Stones drawl was a hoot
And Fifty Words for Snow - you can't do better than 'Misty' a 14 minute paen to a snowman
For 'Before the Dawn' - we all loved the rock songs at the start and the suites of songs 'The Ninth Wave' and 'A Sky of Honey' but we really wanted to just hear Kate solo at her piano, so 'Among Angels' with ensure there is not a dry eye in the studio
Scatter some influences - Roxy Music's first album, 'Rocket Man' by Elton John (which she specifically asked to cover when approached for an Elton tribute album), something from 'Aja' by Steely Dan (she requested 'Peg' on an early show), Bowie, King Crimson and Gabriel, but some folk music such as Ewan McColl and A.L Lloyd and Kate and Anna McGarrigle, some Delius (see 'Never Forever'), a bit of Chopin and Allegri's Misere sung by choristers.
The show might have to last about 6 years, but I think for influences and a far range of her abilities, it probably needs to take that long
