Matthews' Southern Comfort - Later That Same Year (1970)

Matthews' Southern Comfort was a short-lived folk-rock band fronted by English singer-songwriter Ian Matthews.

Later That Same Year was Ian Matthews' third album, and second to be released under the group name Mattews' Southern Comfort. It was a continuation of the mellow country-rock sound he had developed since leaving Fairport Convention, with both strong original songs and covers of material by artists including Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Jesse Winchester. His guitarist Carl Barnwell also contributed two songs.
If Later That Same Year could have been considered his best album yet by that point, it actually showed it with a good dose of commercial success, something Matthews has generally not seen too much of throughout his career. Their cover of Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" was released as a single, and became a #1 hit in the UK.
