Release Info: Ian Matthews - 1972 - Journeys From Gospel Oak
Ian Matthews was incredibly prolific in the late-60's/early-70's leaving two albums on the shelf. The 2nd Plainsong album (available on the Water label) is the better of the two, but I was very happy with Gospel Oak when I finally heard it. It was easy to take music of this style and quality for granted 30-odd years ago. Ian had impeccable taste in song-selection, his beautiful voice never missed a note and he always surrounded himself with sympathetic and skilled musicians. This may be an unambitious album - recorded to fullfill his contract with Vertigo I believe - but it is a satisfying one. A comfortable shoe for any fan of Ian Matthews. (Guy R. Ewald)
