Despite a lack of commercial success since his days with Matthews' Southern Comfort in the early 1970s, the British folk-rock singer-songwriter Iain Matthews has maintained an almost continuous recording career. This twofer highlights a couple of his 1990s releases, both recorded in Austin. Each shows that he remains close to his folk roots, using a mostly acoustic sound palette on autobiographical songs like "You'll Know Lightening" and "In London."
