Editors’ Notes

A masterpiece in miniature, Vashti Bunyan’s Just Another Diamond Day is a set of near perfect songs. Released to little fanfare in 1970, Bunyan’s first full-length effort went on to become a sort of Holy Grail amongst record collectors, an album that was talked about more than it was heard. Thanks to the attentive folks at Seattle’s Light In The Attic records Just Another Diamond Day received its first stateside release in 2004 and found a receptive and enthusiastic audience amongst a new generation of listeners. Vashti’s tightly composed songs, none of them exceeding three minutes in length, are possessed of a striking lyrical economy and a sense of pastoral stillness and that is only bolstered by producer Joe Boyd’s highly textured production. On Just Another Diamond Day Boyd opts for subtle flute and vibraphone flourishes that highlight the fragile beauty of Bunyan’s vocals. Though many contemporary artists claim to be influenced by Bunyan’s work, few have managed to produce anything approaching the singular perfection of Just Another Diamond Day.

I find it ridiculous that this album hasn't been reviewed yet. Released in 1970, it unfortunately did not garner a big enough audience, which forced Vashti to withdraw from the music industry. It wasn't until recently that people have been able to appreciate the quality of this album. It's soothing, melodic folk tunes with gypsy-like elements are great for easy-listening. Personal favorites: Where I Like To Stand, Diamond Day


From thew first track Vashti's voice enthralls the mind while her occasional flouting makes for a truly special buy. You really feel like your just sitting in a meadow with some gypsy serenading you.


Brilliant album. Beautiful in every way.

Vashti Bunyan is a folk chanteuse and singer/songwriter, best known for her 1970 album Just Another Diamond Day, which was rediscovered in the 21st century and dusted off with a new CD issue as one of the great musical finds of its era. Born in London in 1945 -- and counting herself a direct descendant of writer/preacher John Bunyan (1629-1688) -- she first took up the guitar while a student at the Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing, from which she was ultimately expelled at age 18 for spending...
