Ian Matthews: Tigers Will Survive

Metal Mike Saunders, Rolling Stone, 17 February 1972

ONCE UPON A time Ian Matthews was a member of Fairport Convention. Fairport Convention then decided they wanted to head in the direction of traditional folk songs. Ian didn't know much about that sort of stuff, so he left. Here on his fifth solo album, Tigers Will Survive, Ian and his group do an acapella version of 'Da Doo Ron Ron'. Weird guy, huh?
