Vashti Bunyan - Just Another Diamond Day

BRANCH MUSIC

  • £20.99


Vashti Bunyan’s legendary debut album, produced by Joe Boyd for Witchseason Productions and originally released on Philips in 1970.

The album features contributions from Fairport Convention’s Simon Nicol and Dave Swarbrick and The Incredible String Band’s Robin Williamson. The songs mostly concern the events that took place when Vashti and her lover travelled to the Hebrides in a horse and cart to join up with Donovan’s artistic community but by the time they got there that community had all left.

While copies of the record were highly valued by collectors, and is now considered a psych-folk classic, the album was not successful on its release, and was largely forgotten until being rediscovered by a new generation in the mid-2000's, leading to an acclaimed come-back and two new albums for FatCat Records.

It's hard not to fall in love with the pure sweetness of this timeless record, and its genius songwriting, and delicious sound.

"Just Another Diamond Day has long been considered a holy grail for Brit-folk record collectors, with original copies of the album fetching over $1,000 at auction. It shouldn't take many listens to realize why it's so highly regarded; Just Another Diamond Day is, in its own humble way, nearly a thing of perfection” - Pitchfork
