Wuthering Heights Lyrics
What it's about: Kate's nod to Emily Bronte's classic romance novel. (More specifically, the ending, where Cathy comes back as a spirit to claim Heathcliff's soul.)
Running time: 4:26
Kite Lyrics
What it's about: Feeling rooted to the ground, a girl takes to the sky as a kite (but I've always thought it was a thinly veiled drug use metaphor).
Running time: 2:57
The sleeve is one of Gered Mankowitz's "box" photos shot for EMI America in March, 1978. This particular shot is exclusive to the Polish release of Wuthering Heights (except for a reverse image of it, which appears on the US sleeve). (Here are a few more from the same session.)
