Matthews Southern Comfort (MSC) was a British country rock/folk rock band, formed in 1970 by former Fairport Convention singer Ian Matthews. The original line-up consisted of Matthews, lead guitarist Mark Griffiths (who would later become the bass player with both The Shadows and The Everly Brothers), rhythm guitarist Carl Barnwell, bass player Pete Watkins, drummer Roger Swallow and pedal steel guitarist Gordon Huntley. Watkins and Swallow, left the band shortly after the band was formed and were replaced by bass player Andy Leigh and drummer Ray Duffy.

They recorded two albums during 1970,  and their version of the Joni Mitchell song “Woodstock” became a worldwide hit, reaching the top of the UK music charts in October 1970, their only No. 1 hit single. “Woodstock” also charted in several European countries and reached No. 23 in the Billboard Top 100 in the United States.
