    Tapestry of Delights:
    Matthews was born in Lincolnshire in 1946. His first group was the short-lived London-based vocal harmony outfit, The Pyramid, in 1966. Between 1967-69, he was Fairport Convention's lead vocalist. When he left them in January 1969 he formed his own band, Matthews Southern Comfort. When he left them at the end of 1970, he embarked on a solo career which has never equalled his considerable talent in terms of success.
    He signed to Vertigo, releasing If You Saw Thru My Eyes, a highly regarded album on which he was assisted by several former Fairport Convention members.
    His next Vertigo album, Tigers Will Survive, crept into the US Charts, peaking at No 196. He also had a minor hit over there with his cover of The Crystals' Da Doo Ron Ron.
    In 1972 he formed Plainsong, which proved to be a short-lived venture. When they split Matthews relocated to LA, teaming up with ex-Monkee Mike Nesmith, who produced his next solo album, Valley Hi. It reached No 181 in the US in 1973 where he formed a new support band to help promote it on tour as support to America. The following year, he put together a new touring band Ian Matthews and Another Fine Mess, which toured extensively in the US, where his next Elektra album failed to chart.

    The Journeys From Gospel Oak album was a compilation of unreleased material from the 1971-72 era. Originally scheduled for release on Vertigo, it eventually appeared without his knowledge on Mooncrest in 1974, and was later reissued in 1979.
    When his Elektra contract ended, Matthews signed a new contract for Columbia, after passing over Arista. He never did attain any substantial success as a solo artist and during the eighties worked as an A man first for Island Records and then Windham Hill, though he occasionally appeared with Fairport Convention and recorded another solo album in 1988.
