Diamond Day
Vashti Bunyan Lyrics


Just another diamond day
Just a blade of grass
Just another bale of hay
And the horses pass

Just another field to plough
Just a grain of wheat
Just a sack of seed to sow
And the children eat

Just another life to live
Just a word to say
Just another love to give
And a diamond day

This album was released in 1970. It got little acclaim and barely any sales. Then in 2005 she released the album Lookaftering. Subsequently, she released Heartleap in 2014...

“In the early 1960s, she studied at The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at Oxford University, but was expelled for failing to turn up to classes.

At age 18, she traveled to New York and discovered the music of Bob Dylan through his The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan album and decided to become a full-time musician. Returning to London, she was discovered by The Rolling Stones' manager Andrew Loog Oldham. In June 1965, under his direction, she released her first single, "Some Things Just Stick in Your Mind", penned by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

(Due to lack of commercial and critical success she was ) disappointed, (she) left the music industry and moved to The Incredible String Band's Glen Row cottages, then Ireland, and back to Scotland. Much of the ensuing 30 years were spent raising her three children. In this time, entirely unknown to her, the original album slowly became one of the most sought-after records of its time. It has sold online on Discogs for as much as $3,946.”

Well if that ain’t beautiful...

Just another diamond day
Just a blade of grass
Just another bale of hay
And the horses pass
Just another field to plough
Just a grain of wheat
Just a sack of seed to sow
And the children eat
Just another life to live
Just a word to say
Just another love to give
And a diamond day

Hearing her songs make me want to have a very domestic life, with a farm and a garden, while singing these to my cows and cabbages.

@V. Feminism isn't about all women going into the workforce. It's about giving women the ability to choose for themselves. If a woman wants to live a more maternal life, then she has the right to. If a woman wants to be a CEO, then she too has the right to. Most importantly, it is about giving women the same rights as men.

In years to come historiographers will trace the practice of singing to cabbages back to this comment.

Hope you will make it happen my dear friend. I'm in my 20s, having a high wage job that everyone is dreaming of. But deep down I know for sure that the city lifestyle with pollutions, bunch of people chasing for illusions, trying to take every single coin from each other is not the lifestyle I want to live with. If there is any inspiration I could give you, it's letting you know that I'm saving to start a new simple farm life, somewhere, but not in the city.

I bought a computer and got on the internet just as she reissued the vinyl LP. I emailed her telling of my 30 year search for the album, and to my astonishment and pleasure, she replied. So my first ever email was from Vashti Bunyan. In real life she is the same person you hear on the LP.

@Gary Ives Dragonfly Red DAC connected to a 1980 Technics SU-V8 has turned digital audio to be a fair competition to vinyl here.
