K is for The Kick Inside

The title track for Kate's debut album in 1978. 'The Kick Inside' is a really beautiful song - however on closer examination it contains some remarkably taboo subject matter (incest and suicide). It's one of the first to show the influence of Kate's folk music background - it's inspired by 'The Ballad of Lizie Wan'.
