2 stars I am a huge fan of just about anything that Kate Bush has put out. I am not really, however, an Elton John fan. Maybe 3 or 4 of his songs have ever earned my attention- and "Rocket Man" is one of these. This interpretation of the song by Kate Bush finds her turning the song into a typical Kate song, a bit folky, spacy, great vocals as always, and no doubt as to it being her track. Good, but not great. I prefer Elton's version. "Candle in th Wind" was an overplayed Elton John number that Kate improves upon with great moody vocals and ethereal music. An instrumental only version is also included, but without Kate singing, why bother? I listen to Kate Bush BECAUSE of her vocal sound, not for the music behind it. This release is only for real fans of Kate and her music. 2 stars.
