Kate Bush makes history with album sales

By Catherine Wylie

Kate Bush has become the first woman in history to have eight albums in the Official Albums Chart at the same time.

The achievement comes following her return to the stage after 35 years went down a storm with critics and fans alike, who hailed her performance as "spellbinding".

This week, two of Bush's albums are in the top 10 – The Whole Story at number six and Hounds Of Love at number nine – with a total of eight Bush albums in the top 40.

Bush is now only behind Elvis Presley, the overall record holder who managed 12 entries in the top 40 following his death in 1977, and The Beatles, who notched up 11 simultaneous top 40 entries with their 2009 album reissues.
