An insane amount of material from the enigmatic Iain Matthews
– pulled from his personal archives, and featuring rare material with Matthews
Southern Comfort, Plainsong, and some of his other projects – plus plenty of other tracks recorded on his own! These aren't just rough nuggets or dusty dregs – as Iain
's at his best on most of this material, hitting that unique blend of UK singer/
songwriter styling and American roots that made his presence during the early Vertigo Records years such a breath of fresh air – and which has always kept Matthews
' records in some of the hipper record collections over the years. This is a revised, improved version of a package that Iain
created for mail order customers at the start of the 90s – and features 69 rare tracks, including demos, alternates, live material, and plenty more – all with a big booklet of notes!
