King Of The Mountain marked Kate's return from a 9 year, 4 month drought.  It was her first new material since Mná na hÉireann in May, 1996.
It was written and recorded in 1996, but sat on the shelf for nearly 10 years.
Sexual Healing, a cover of the Marvin Gaye classic, was originally recorded in 1994 for Davy Spillane's East Wind CD.  It was played at her 1994 Hippodrome convention, but never made it onto the Spillane CD.
This is an EU pressing in a slim jewel case released only in Holland.  A card stock version, identical to the UK release, was issued in Holland as well.
