    The photo was done by Gered Mankowitz, the same guy who did the first version of TKI cover shot, aka. the tits version. So that would mean it was a studio construction.

    The cover is easily the best thing about the album. And Hammer Horror.

    Love this - Kate debuts "Kashka from Baghdad" on Ask Aspel in September 1978



    Does anyone know which songs are from TKI era or before, and which were new when Lionheart was recorded? I'm confused...

    It's a shame that she once said in an interview that she was embarrassed by that song (among others).

    I listened to Lionheart all the way through for the first time in ages today and I'd forgotten how much I love it. I actually prefer it to The Kick Inside, but I'm probably just biased because I heard Lionheart first. I think TKI is more emotionally resonant, whereas Lionheart is meant to be more theatrical. I wish she had been given more time to work on it, because there are a few filler tracks that I think would have worked better as B-sides, but "Wow", "In Search Of Peter Pan" and "Hammer Horror" are some of my favourite songs from her whole catalogue.

    the new songs were Symphony In Blue, Fullhouse and Coffee Homeground! the rest were from TKI era! in Under The Ivy book Andrew Powell said that they cancelled some of the songs that were supposed to appear in TKI like Wow due to the fact that they were darker than the general feel of the album!

    I could have sworn 'Wow' was new for LH.

    I haven't read any biographies, but Hammer Horror, Violin and Kashka from Baghdad are apparently very early songs.

    from Kate's Mouth:

    In fact, I only wrote three new songs - `` Symphony in Blue", `` Fullhouse'' and `` Coffee Homeground'' - and if you know that, then you can tell the difference in style. Basically, this album could have been a lot better. (1984, Women of Rock)

    I love Oh England! My Lionheart. I can't listen to that song without crying, and I'm not even English. I would list it among my favourite sad songs of all times.
