"THE LATENESS OF THE HOUR"


"The Lateness of the Hour" is Eric Matthews 
second solo CD. he seems to just get better 
and better with each new CD. I can't wait 
to hear what wonderful sounds his third CD 
will bring us. On this CD he has taken the 
music a bit further and has added a few 
more orchestra instruments. This CD is a 
step above "It's Heavy in Here", in my 
opinion. This should tell you something. 
His "It's Heavy in Here" was and still is 
fantastic, which obviously means "The 
Lateness of the Hour" is brilliant.
