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: 3:00
This is the 3rd of three different versions of the Spain sleeve. All are very similar; only the graphics vary. (Sleeve scan courtesy of Bart.)
And here is a look at all 3 versions side by side. (As you'll see, they're all practically identical.)
Unlike all of its European counterparts, this sleeve uses one of Gered Mankowitz's "leotard" photos shot for EMI in January, 1978. (Here are a few more shots from the same session...)
