Randy Matthews – Eyes To The Sky – 1975

After the fiasco at The Jesus Festival in 1974 during which he was unplugged and thrown out for playing Rock & Roll he went into the studio to cut this album. He even wrote a song about the incident “Pennsylvania Song” on which he sang “you pulled the plug and drained my soul, but I know I left a ring around the tub of tradition, I saw some dance and sing” Many of us who stumbled on Randy in the 80’s problem didn’t even know he was a Rock & Roll pioneer. A quick listen to this album will reinforce this new knowledge as this is a great 70’s rock album. Seriously if you missed this one back in the day it’s a must listen to.

One thought on “Randy Matthews – Eyes To The Sky – 1975”

  1. Looking forward to giving to this a listen. Thanks for continuing to put this content out there. Your antepenultimate (an actual word for third to last) sentence began, “Many of those who stumbled on Randy in the 80’s …”. The next word was supposed to be probably but you accidentally put problem. I ha to read it back a few times just to make sure I knew what you were talking about.
