Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
A music video version of British singer/songwriter Kate Bush's 1986 greatest-hits album, The Whole Story collects promo clips released between 1977 and 1986. Although they are not arranged chronologically, the videos range from "Wuthering Heights," Bush's debut single, to "Experiment IV," the one new song recorded for the greatest-hits album. Also included are the four videos from 1985's Hounds of Love LP, which provided the artist with her first Top 40 American hit in the form of "Running up That Hill." Despite its title, The Whole Story is less than exhaustive; it lacks five videos included on the earlier compilation The Single File. Of the 13 videos that are included, only one, "The Big Sky," was not included on the album. A 1993 laserdisc edition of The Whole Story added the three videos from the separate collection The Sensual World.
