She had quite the show back then, as much art and burlesque as her music. And her friendship with Gabriel was a great combination that really shouldn’t have worked given their different styles, but worked perfectly.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my soul to whoever uploaded this!!! KB was absolute MAGIC and this was just hypnotic!!! I haven’t thought of those songs in years and it was incredible to see some of them performed. I wore the vinyl out back in the day, pure bliss to listen to her enchanted voice through the headphones.

What a great show! I’d seen bits and pieces of it before, but the whole thing is amazing. She has a fascinating artistic vision. Symphony in Blue will always be one of my favorites from her.

Naturally after seeing this I needed to see some more and came across another wonderful collection of Kate tunes:

With Traces of Melancholy, Rare & Unreleased Tracks

She’s a treasure.
