Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind – Singles and demos 1964 - 1967 (reissue)
a re-issue of this comprehensive compilation of early recordings - a stunning set of raw, pure, intimate recordings dating from the period prior to Vashti’s classic ‘Just another Diamond Day’ album which was originally released in 1970.
A complete collection of Vashti’s existing early recordings, the album is divided across two discs and features 25 tracks - mostly rescued from a number of old acetates and quarter-inch tapes Vashti’s brother John had found in his attic a few years ago. The first disc gathers together the early singles (two of which were unreleased) and a set of taped demos recorded between 1965-67. These were the first recordings Vashti had ever made of the songs she had written aged eighteen and nineteen. Considering they sat gathering dust in a shed and then in an attic for nearly forty years, the tapes are amazingly well preserved.
