"IT'S HEAVY IN HERE"


"It's Heavy In Here" is Eric Matthews' Critically acclaimed debut solo 
album. The album's first single, "Fanfare" was dubbed "Penny Lane of the 90's".
I must say I agree. I have not heard a song or album this brilliant since The 
Beatles heyday. This album is in my 1990's top 5.
