British folk chanteuse Vashti Bunyan learned guitar while attending art school, and in 1964 was expelled forspending more time writing songs than painting; through theatrical agent Monte Mackay she soon met RollingStones manager/producer Andrew Loog Oldham, and in 1965 signed to Decca to release her debut single, theMick Jagger/Keith Richards-penned "Some Things Just Stick in Your Mind." The record earned little attention, andBunyan moved to Columbia for the follow-up, "Train Song"; after recording a handful of unreleased tracks forImmediate she cut ties with Oldham and ostensibly retired from music, leaving London in 1968 in a horse-drawnwagon on a two-year journey to the Hebrides, with the ultimate goal of meeting folk icon Donovan on the Isle ofSkye. Throughout her travels Bunyan continued writing songs, however, and in 1969 she teamed with legendaryproducer Joe Boyd to record her lone full-length LP, the lovely Just Another Diamond Day. After completing thealbum she left for Ireland, dropping out of music to raise a family. Long out-of-print and a highly-prizedcollectible, Just Another Diamond Day was finally reissued on CD in the summer of 2000. In 2005 she returnedwith Lookaftering, a reference to her years "lookaftering" her family. The album appeared on Fat Cat's DiCristinaimprint and featured artwork by Vashti's daughter.
