The Other Sides ab März auf CD

Das 4LP-Set „The Other Sides“ wird am 8. März auf CD veröffentlicht. Auf 4 CDs wird es dann die 12-Inch-Mixe, B-Seiten, Raritäten und Coverversionen geben. Die remasterten Tracks auf CD sind identisch mit der LP-Version. Nach der Veröffentlichung der remasterten Alben hatten Fans kritisiert, dass „The Other Sides“ ausschließlich auf Vinyl bzw. nur im Box-Set veröffentlicht worden war. Um das CD-Set zu promoten, wurde zudem erstmals das Video zu Kates Coverversion von „Rocket Man“ offiziell veröffentlicht. Dazu schreibt sie auf ihrer Homepage:

I remember buying this when it came out as a single by Elton John. I couldn’t stop playing it – I loved it so much. Most artists in the mid seventies played guitar but Elton played piano and I dreamed of being able to play like him.Years later in 1989, Elton and Bernie Taupin were putting together an album called Two Rooms, which was a collection of cover versions of their songs, each featuring a different singer. To my delight they asked me to be involved and I chose Rocket Man. They gave me complete creative control and although it was a bit daunting to be let loose on one of my favourite tracks ever, it was really exciting. I wanted to make it different from the original and thought it could be fun to turn it into a reggae version. It meant a great deal to me that they chose it to be the first single release from the album. That meant I also had the chance to direct the video which I loved doing – making it a performance video, shot on black and white film, featuring all the musicians and… the Moon! Alan Murphy played guitars on the track. He was a truly special musician and a very dear friend. Tragically, he died just before we made the video so he wasn’t able to be there with us but you’ll see his guitar was placed on an empty chair to show he was there in spirit. This is the first time this video has officially been released since its original TV broadcast.
