diamond doll

went to see vashti bunyan last night. what a legend. she is such a lovely person! her voice is virtually the same as it was years ago - soft and fragile. she sang a great collection of songs from rose hip november to the current album - and she introduced all of them, setting the scene about when and how she wrote the song, all in her slightly apologetic manner. if you get the chance - go see her!

Do you have these 2 tunes by Chantal Kelly (my fav' Yéyé gal):
- La chanson du coucou
- Les roses de mon jardin

In that case, can you upload them?

jerom, i do have both the songs (i think) - one might be on vinyl so i'll need to copy it to mp3 - give me a few days and i'll get on to it for you x
