The Man With The Child In His Eyes / Saxophone Song / Fright

KATE BUSH The Man With The Child In His Eyes / Saxophone Song / Frightened Eyes (Think of the first things you ever heard by the astonishing Kate Bush. Think of the classic 'Kick Inside' album. What songs do you remember ?

I'm sure that one of the first to come to mind is the amazing 'Man With The Child In His Eyes'. A song with such depth of vision that it still seems incredible that it came from the mind of a teenage girl from Bexleyheath.
In fact, so good was it that she won her first prestigious Ivor Novello award for this very song.

What we have here, written way back in the early seventies in pink felt tip, are the handwritten lyrics for the song. They are written on a much folded piece of A4 lined paper which has what look like clip marks at the top, so it may even have been at those first recording sessions in June 1975 at AIR Studios under the supervision of Dave Gilmour.
In addition, written in blue ballpoint pen on the back of two sheets of a 'Naprosyn' anti inflammatory notepad are the original lyrics to 'Saxophone Song' & the lyrics [dated 17th July 1975] for the as yet unreleased song 'Frightened Eyes'.

This amazing collection of original handwritten lyrics has finally been released by the person she gave them to over thirty five years ago. He has decided, after having them in his possession since the time before the fame & fortune caused them to drift apart, with Kate going on to become one of the most admired musicians & songwriters of all time, that the time has come for them to go to a new home.

To complete this unique collection of original Kate Bush memorabilia is a loved copy of that first album that Kate gave to him, stickered on the back cover 'Manufacturers Property NOT FOR SALE' and a vintage 8½" x 6½" black and white photograph of the teenage pair hugging outside a house.

This has to be the most important Kate Bush item to surface since her first demo tape. An amazing one of a kind snapshot of the dawning of her musical genius. One & one only)
