Background: Kate Bush’s 1978 debut, The Kick Inside, was a chart success nearly everywhere except the United States, where it never entered the charts and the album’s top single, Wuthering Heights, peaked at #85 on the Billboard charts. She was huge in Britain and Europe, where The Kick Inside was made available as both a grey vinyl pressing and a picture disc, and the picture disc sold well enough that the record company pressed it twice.
The first pressings of the picture discs had the words “remember yourself” etched in the dead wax.
