Tell Tales Records: Hounds of Love - 12" Interview Picture Disc

Another unofficial picture disc release - this time through the Tell Tales series. I don't remember a whole lot about the original packaging of this record. I only recall a card sleeve similar to the Baktobak ones with a microphone or something on it.

Although the copyright listed on the vinyl is 1987, the interview is Hounds of Love era. It's a very general interview, with lots of questions and answers about the press media, promotion, the record company, life... plus the album. It's also pre-recorded and not a live interview. While pre-recorded interviews were a saving grace for many artists back in the day, they also tended to sound odd if the "interviewer" didn't match with the pre-recorded bits. It's not particularly the best interview for this reason. Kate's pre-recorded bits are good, but the "interviewer" brings the whole thing down with his lack of enthusiasm.

There are better examples of interview discs out there, but this just isn't one of them.
