REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC 1972 SOLO ALBUM BY IAN MATTHEWS
FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly
re-mastered edition of the classic second solo album by IAN MATTHEWS. He first
came to prominence as a member of FAIRPORT CONVENTION, appearing on the band’s
first two albums.
In 1969 he formed MATTHEWS SOUTHERN COMFORT,
recording three classic albums and releasing a version of Joni Mitchell’s ‘Woodstock’
which topped the UK charts and was a global hit, before embarking on a solo
career with the acclaimed “IF YOU SAW THRO’ MY EYES”. His 1972 follow-up album,
“TIGERS WILL SURVIVE” was an equally acclaimed album.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered
from the original master tapes and features a rare bonus track, “Devil in
Disguise”, the A-side of a single released in 1973. The booklet fully restores
all original album artwork with a new essay.
