KT Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words

The HandSome Cabin Boy

[Discussing the original on which kate's cover was based:] this next one is by a pair we've heard before, so obviously a. L. burt lloyd and ewan maccoll were real favourites in your home.

Yes, they were. I think for me they really sum up a lot about traditional music. As you've told them a mine of information about Ewan MacColl, I can't really say about him, but I think they do represent a lot - and especially, Lloyd's voice. And the next song we're playing...For me it is an absolutely classic story - the fact that they can fit in such a beautiful story, as well as such a beautiful tune. (1980, BBC)
