Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind
by Vashti Bunyan on FatCat RecordsReleased 10/09/2007
Originally released way back in 1965 on the Decca label (as just ‘Vashti’, no Bunyan), ‘Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind’ was actually the young London-based singer’s debut record. Taken from the double-CD compilation of Vashti’s early (pre-‘Just Another Diamond Day’) recordings from 1964-1967, the re-issue of this historic 7” single is a limited pressing of 1000 copies.
Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song was handed to Vashti by Rolling Stones manager / guru Andrew Loog Oldham, who had recently discovered her via an industry friend. Vashti was put in the studio to record the song with the backing of a full orchestra. The track was backed by her own beautiful song, ‘I Want To Be Alone’ on the B-side and released as a 7” single in May 1965.
