Baktabak Records: The Dreaming - 12" Interview Picture Disc

I bought this one brand new many years ago, and it's the only reason why it still has its original die-cut card sleeve. Often times you'll find these picture sleeves in thick pvc sleeves because the original die-cut sleeve has been lost or destroyed. The sleeve is very thin and flimsy, so it doesn't take much to mangle it.

Baktabak created many of these picture discs you see for Kate and many other artists. The back of the sleeve has a catalogue of other interviews in the series, including the various formats.

This is easily my favourite interview picture disc. I haven't listened to this one in a long time, but it's a fantastic interview... and a little noisy. You do hear people in the background chatting, but also lots of dishes clanging about. I'm assuming this interview took place in some restaurant. If you can get past all the noise, it's a very nice interview for The Dreaming. Kate is very at ease during this interview, even chomping away on food during it. The interviewer's questions are good, and he actually seems interested - but Kate's answers are even better, and she really gets in depth with her answers. This is probably the best full interview for The Dreaming out there that you can find.

This interview takes place around the time There Goes a Tenner is released as Kate mentions it's the new single and talks about the ideas behind it. I highly recommend this one.
