After five straight solo recordings with producer Mark Hallman at the helm – going back to 1988 – Iain Matthews decided to handle the production duties, along with guitarist Bradley Kopp, for 1999's Excerpts from Swine Lake. Whereas his last couple of recordings lived and died with his writing or vocals, here Matthews and Kopp inject the material with a vibrance that has been somewhat scarce in his work since 1990's Pure & Crooked. It also doesn't hurt that this is as consistent a collection of original music that he's put to record.

A collaboration stemming from longtime mutual admiration, Iain Matthews and Elliott Murphy find more than a little common ground on La Terre Commune. With each contributing four songs to covers of Bob Dylan's "Blind Willie McTell," Bruce Springsteen's "Sad Eyes," and Jesse Colin Young's "Darkness, Darkness," the two succeed in creating a seamlessly cohesive song cycle…

While probably best remembered in the United States for his 1978 smash 'Shake It' (#13 Billboard Pop Singles), Iain Matthews has been a worldwide music icon for over 45 years. Whether as a founding member of Fairport Convention, Matthews Southern Comfort (who hit #23 with their cover of Joni Mitchell's 'Woodstock' in 1971), Plainsong or as a solo artist, Matthews has taken listeners on a journey with each recording.

Matthews Southern Comfort 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' future work is headed. With Second Spring, the other album included on this two-fer, Southern Comfort is a real band, and in addition to Matthews also includes Roger Swallow (ex-Marmalade) and Marc Griffiths (ex-Spooky Tooth). Although there is really nothing that makes this a memorable record, it's still quite nice overall.

When PolyGram refused to release his 1983 record Shook in either the U.S. or England, Iain Matthews became disillusioned and decided to put his career on hold indefinitely. Following a stint as an A&R man for both Island and Windham Hill Records, he returned in 1988 with an album dedicated solely to the songs of Jules Shear. Issued by Windham Hill, Walking a Changing Line was the label's first vocal release, though it still retained touches of the label's trademark new age sound throughout.

Beginning with the first notes of Too Much through to the last notes of its reprise, this midsummer show from Atlanta, GA brings some heat. The 2004 Summer Tour saw the live debut of Sugar Will, Joyride, Crazy Easy, Good Good Time and Hello Again played alongside proven fan favorites and rarities. From Captain to Crush, founding member LeRoi Moore’s playing is nothing short of amazing as the band delivers one of its finer sets.

In the late 70s British singer/songwriter Iain Matthews lived in the USA with career ups and downs. In 1978 he had a US Top 10 hit with the song "Shake It", just two years later he didn't even have a record deal. In 1977 already he had moved from Los Angeles to Seattle where he met David Surkamp, leader of the band Pavlov's Dog and singer with the probably most unique voice in the music business. Although both came from totally different musical directions ("I hated his music, he hated mine - that's why we knew it will work" - Iain Matthews), they formed the band HI-FI, a three guitar, bass and drums driven rock combo (Bruce Hazen, guitars: Garey Shelton, bass; Bob Briley, drums) which had almost nothing in common what Matthews had done in the 10 years before, and they shared all the vocal parts.

Musical literalists may not be pleased with Colin Matthews' free orchestral arrangements of the 24 movements of Debussy's two books of Préludes pour le piano; this is certainly not the equivalent of Ravel's faithful orchestration of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. Fans of impressionist orchestral music and some fans of the piano originals, though, may well experience a thrill, as if a lost Debussy orchestral piece had been rediscovered.

Chilliwack are the legendary Canadian rock band best remembered for their biggest hits "My Girl (Gone Gone Gone)", "I Believe", "Whatcha Gonna Do (When I'm Gone)", "Fly At Night", "Lonesome Mary" and "Communication Breakdown", all of which charted in the US and Canada. The latter three were originally released on 'Dreams, Dreams, Dreams', 'Lights From The Valley', and 'Breakdown in Paradise' via the legendary Canadian indie label Mushroom Records, famous for launching the career of Heart as well as Doucette, Paul Horn, and Iain Matthews. Mushroom ceased operations in the late 1970's following the death of its legendary co-founder Shelly Segal, and the vinyl - only catalog was never released on CD or made available digitally. The 'Dreams, Dreams, Dreams' album is now finally being reissued, re-mastered with bonus tracks, new liner notes and photographs by bandleader Bill Henderson. Chilliwack continue to perform live at festivals and casinos across North America.
