Kylie’s advent treats are starting to up the ante with the most recent being this previously unreleased version of the singer’s ‘Impossible Princess’ cut ‘Breathe’, as performed during her Abbey Road Sessions.
It’s common knowledge that many songs from Kylie’s back catalogue were recorded with sixteen making the final cut. Perhaps one of my biggest disappointments was that there weren’t any from what is seen by many as her most personal and ambitious album to date.
This live acoustic performance of the delightful ‘Breathe’, a #14 single for Ms Minogue back in 1998, addresses that and was revealed as part of her daily advent surprises this week.
Between this and the bonus tracks that appeared on the Japanese and Australian editions of ‘The Abbey Road Sessions’ (‘In My Arms’ and ‘WOW’), I think a case is seriously building for a comprehensive deluxe edition of the album featuring all of the recordings to be issued.
