Matthews' Southern Comfort - Matthews' Southern Comfort download album

Matthews' Southern Comfort is the debut solo album by country rock/folk rock musician Ian Matthews, and was his first album after leaving Fairport Convention in 1969. The musicians who played on it with Matthews were luminaries of the British folk rock scene and included ex-Fairport colleagues Ashley Hutchings, Simon Nicol and Richard Thompson, plus Gerry Conway, the drummer from Eclection and Fotheringay.

After Iain Matthews had left to sign to Vertigo as a solo artist, the band continued as Southern Comfort (3). Members

This is a transitional album for Matthews. Having recently exited Fairport Convention, this record pays tribute to that period of his career in both material ("A Castle Far") and in the choice of musicians who back him (many of them from Fairport Convention). At the same time, songs like "A Commercial Proposition" indicate where Matthews is headed on 1971's Later That Same Year.

Notes

Gatefold sleeve.

Originally released in 1969, Matthews’ Southern Comfort was Ian Matthews’ first album after leaving Fairport Convention. Although many Fairport personnel appear here (i.e. Richard Thompson, Simon Nicol, and Ashley Hutchings), for his new band Matthews distanced himself from the pure English folk rock of Fairport, preferring instead to explore a more American breed of song writing—being made popular at the time by bands like the Byrds and Bob Dylan—as well as provide a stage for his own compositions, including “Please Be My Friend” and “Thoughts For A Friend”. The group would soon go on to have a massive hit with their version of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock”. Gatefold LP with lyrics!
