Description

For over 50 years, singer-songwriter and musician IAIN MATTHEWS has carved his own niche, fusing his own mix of well-crafted songs drawing on folk-rock, Americana, soft rock and other influences..ORPHANS AND OUTCASTS reviews three volumes of his long-deleted rarities series, adding a newly-curated fourth CD of previously unissued rarities from more recent times, bringing the project right up-to-date.

The box set covers Iain's entire career, from mid-60s rarities with Pyramid and recordings from around the time of his breakthrough with Matthews Southern Comfort to a handful of rarities by folk-rock favourites Plainsong and a plethora of solo material..Compiled and annotated by Iain himself, ORPHANS AND OUTCASTS is a very personal trawl through the back pages of a remarkable musical biography.

Discs 1-3 have now been remastered; and everything on Disc 4 is previously unissued..ORPHANS AND OUTCASTS also boasts a multitude of impressive musicians who have worked with Iain down the years, including Richard Thompson, Andy Roberts, Viv Stanshall, Mark 'Griff' Griffiths, Pat Donaldson, Gerry Conway, Ian Whiteman, Jerry Donahue, Timmi Donald, David Surkamp, Mark Hallman and many others..Introductory essay by renowned rock biographer and historian Clinton Heylin.
