The Kick Inside. Release Date February 17, Three other singles were released over the world during the next two years: "Them Heavy People", "Moving" which reached number one in Japan and "Strange Phenomena". It peaked at number Bush made an appearance on Saturday Night Live in December Despite this publicity, The Kick Inside failed to enter the top of the Billboard albums chart.
The album peaked at No. Eventually clocking up 71 weeks LP the chart,  it was certified platinum and remains one of Bush's biggest selling records. The Kick Inside was released on 17 February Six different varieties of the album's cover are known:  the regular UK cover, a variant UK cover, the US cover, the Canadian cover, the Yugoslavian cover, the Japanese cover, and the Uruguayan cover, the Uruguayan cover being the rarest and most expensive due to its unusual head-on photo of Bush.
In the UK, it was released twice as a limited edition picture disc. This is housed in a full colour outer sleeve 'Kite' picture by Jay Myrdal.

Two versions were actually released: The first edition has a circular sticker stating that it is a picture disc usually in the top left hand corner.
