I love this album. Although I am a total hippie with a HUGE love for folk music, I had never heard of Vashti until yes you guessed it, the mobile phone advert (I am somewhat ashamed to say.) This album is wonderful, whimsical, hair-on-the-back-of-the-neck raising folk at its best. It is that kind of folk which makes you feel nostalgic, it is ever-so-slightly unsettling acoustic and flute heaven. I would be lost without this album now. At times when I listen to it, I am almost close to tears with yearning to escape today's world and be with Vashti on her magical 60's caravan journey to the Outer Hebrides. Listen to it and you will know what I mean!

I am ashamed to say that I missed Vashti Bunyan the first time around, which is surprising as I was into obscure Singer/songwriters at the end of the 60's and early 70's-Bridget St John being my favourite of all time. So I was glad to discover this album second time around! I have heard some criticism of Vashti's voice, but I find it absolutely enchanting-as delicate as the gossamer wings of a dragonfly. And that applies to her songs as well-full of poetry and a time of innocence that has sadly been lost to the world. Her voice perfectly matches the music and lyrics
that would have been ruined by the more powerful, but equally beautiful, voice of Sandy Denny and her ilke. Some of the songs are childlike, others full of deep emotion and a oneness with nature, but all are rich and colourful. I look forward to listening to some of her later recordings.

My Dad was a "folky" in the early 70's (when I were a laad of 12 or 13) and he had an album by a strangely named woman ... which we would hear him listening to from time to time.

When I joined the Navy and went to sea, my Dad sent me a tape of "Diamond Day" and I have been listening to it captivated ever since (some 30 years now). I have, of late, lived in fear that this ancient audio tape would expire (like they do).

However, my daughter has latched onto the tape and seems to love the haunting tunes as much as me ... totally un-prompted by her, now, middle-aged Dad.

She found the CD on Amazon and I have bought it (and on impulse her follow up album).

I would recommend this album of simple, emotive and beautifully tuneful songs to any and everyone who is looking at this review.

Turn down the lights, sit or lay down in a comfortable seat, close your eyes and let this songstress whisk you off to a gentle place - you won't regret the time you spend wandering with her little family and their caravan.

I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of "lookaftering".

This ability is simply that- pure quality. It's certainly the best album I've bought for a while. I didn't buy it because of the mobile phone advert (featuring the title track), but if you like that song the rest of the album is more of the same. I've heard it described as pastoral english folk music, which seems about right to me. Even if you're not a big folk fan, I could see this album in the 'chillout' section of a music shop. It's great for unwinding after work, though it might make you fall asleep! Even though this was recorded a while back, it doesn't sound dated. In fact, it sounds very modern and fresh. Brilliant!

Don't get carried away by the curmudgeon who described Vashti as Jackanory-esque and unbearably twee.

This in a genuine piece of late 60's/early 70's gentle hippyness and mellow vibes. Vashti isn't a Joni Mitchell or Maddy Prior in the vocal stakes. Her voice is as gentle as the rain but in its fragility,the songs of love,animals & magic are most effectively delivered.

I can almost hear the clip clop of the cart horse pulling Vashti's gypsy caravan up to the Scottish Isles and smell the salted air,woodsmoke,seaweed and herbal essences !

What's with the one star and hostile reviews scattered about here? So it's simple - so what. So it's childlike - so what. So it doesn't sound like Shelagh McDonald or Sandy Denny - so what. So Vashty isn't as good a singer as Shelagh or Sandy - so what. So it could be a Jackanory soundtrack - so what. I adore this record just as I adore the recent Sandy Denny reissues and the Shelagh McDonald reissue. But they're different to this. This album's simplicity is it's strength. I can imagine a whole world of people listening to this for more than five minutes. Such as: people who like stripped down songs, people who like artists like Mazzy Star, This Mortal Coil, Cocteau Twins etc, people with a heart and soul, people who don't treat music as an academic exercise or need it served up with unnecessary garnish.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars! If you enjoy sixties or seventies British Folk or just great music in general then do not hesitate to purchase this.There is nothing I can think of to compare this to. It is perfect, beautiful, strange and a must-have. I've read that Vashti Bunyan is in the process of reviving her music career. The world at large may not take notice but would be made infinitely better by new material from this artist. If you don't already own this,buy it!!!
