ザ・ミュージック ・ 197808


The August 1978 issue of The Music is the first and one of only a few Japanese magazines with Kate on the cover. It is also one of the earliest Japanese publications to feature an interview with Kate. On this occasion, Kate was interviewed together with Japanese singer Machiko Watanabe, who had also just released her first album.

From page 131 onwards, there is a list of 26 recommended singer-songwriters. Kate is number 20 (on page 141)! Other female singer-songwriters in the list are Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and Dolly Parton.

Finally, on page 238 twenty The Kick Inside notebooks are being given away, and on page 240 the magazines index.
