2 stars A decent single album, nothing more!

Kate Bush is one of my favorite singers, she easily enters in my top 5, so anything that comes from her, is well received by me. Last week I was lucky enough to find in a second hand store this single CD entitled "Rocket Man / Candle in the Wind" and did not hesitate in buying it. Release by Mercury in 1991, as you can imagine, this is a cover of that well known song that Elton John immortalized.

Kate did the cover for an album called "Two Rooms: 16 classic songs from Elton John and Bernie Taupin", and this single came from that. The song is excellent, her voice is simple adorable, sweet and passionate, a reason of that may be that as she once said: "Elton John was my biggest hero". So go figure.

"Candle in the Wind", another classic song original by John and arranged here by Kate. The sound is pure and beautiful, despite the music is pretty soft and gently, one can easily appreciate its depth. The atmosphere created is wonderful, the hand of Bush is evident. That was the second track, and the third one is actually the same song, but in a instrumental version. The same beauty is shared here, but well, without Kate's voice is not the same.

This is a nice single, a cool tribute from a big artist to another big musician. I love it, but well, it is only a fourteen-minute CD, so my final grade is two stars, just for fans.

Enjoy it!
