Kate Bush
Neumann U87

The solid-state successor to the U67, the Neumann U87 was used to record the piano on Kate Bush’s iconic hit ‘Babooshka’ in 1980.

In fact, the sound of the U87 in Abbey Road’s Studio Two can be heard throughout Kate’s first number one album, ‘Never for Ever’.

From detailed session sheets stored by EMI Archive Trust, we see that the Neumann U87 was also used to record the guitars and an array of stringed instruments played by Kate’s older brother Paddy.
