Ian Matthews: If You Saw Thro' My Eyes (Vertigo)

Bud Scoppa, Rolling Stone, 19 August 1971

AFTER A TWO-ALBUM stint with Fairport Convention, Ian Matthews made a solo LP, Matthews Southern Comfort, formed a band called Matthews Southern Comfort, and proceeded to make two fine albums with that group. He also found himself the surprised owner of a hit single, ‘Woodstock’. Subsequently, his band bristled with newly sprouted democratic notions, and Matthews got off just when success seemed inevitable.
