Recorded in his adopted home of Austin in the mid-1990s, this set shows that the British folk-rock singer-songwriter Iain Matthews hasn't strayed far from his folk roots in the decades since his first success with Matthews' Southern Comfort in the early '70s. Tracks like the folk-pop "I Drove" and his duet with Sarah Hickman on "Morning Glory" display a finely honed sense of songcraft, while the mostly acoustic backing is understated and sensitive.
