180-gram, 4LP box set

Presented as an audacious, multi-media theatrical performance titled Before The Dawn, the month-long, sold-out, 22-date residency at London's Hammersmith Apollo was an unqualified triumph for Kate Bush.

Now, to the delight of Kate Bush fans around the world, comes the audio document of those mesmerizing, historic shows. Before The Dawn arrives as a 4-disc 180-gram vinyl box set. The sound quality is almost unparalleled; nothing has been re-recorded or overdubbed. The three act show, containing many well known Kate Bush songs, also included two song suites: "The Ninth Wave" from Hounds of Love and "A Sky of Honey," from Aerial. Included in the show are an abundance of well loved songs from her extraordinary career including "Running Up That Hill," "Hounds of Love," "And Dream of Sheep," "Waking The Witch" and "Cloudbusting." Despite the enormous anticipation and expectations, Before The Dawn drew resounding praise from fans and critics all over the world. The New York Times called the performance "Dense, cathartic and physical." NME concluded: "It is no ordinary artist that can tackle life, death, synchronicity, identity, spiritual transformation, empathy and the chaos of relationships with idiosyncratic ease in the space of a few hours," and the U.K.'s Independent gushed, "Undoubtedly the most ambitious, and genuinely moving piece of theatrical pop ever seen on a British stage."
