Kate Bush in MP3

Why?
While I have been led to believe that Kate is not fond of these early works, I can imagine it's akin to parents showing those embarrassing baby photos to a significant other, but all of us hardened (mad) fans love to hear these, just as we all love to see the early photos of Kate in the Cathy Book (or my copy of that site) published by her brother, John Carder Bush. Even though the quality is not that of a fully produced studio, we still love them, but have had to pay high costs to bootleggers (or people on ebay) while Kate makes no money! If Kate is making no money, then I think neither should any bootleggers, so clicking below will take to a site that has them - for free!
Plus: find some other rare/interesting trinklets.

You can read the history of these at the gaffa site. A site dedicated to Kate Bush.
