The Way Things Used To Be

Austin Jimmy Murphy

In cart Not available Out of stock

A collection of country/folk tunes I wrote mainly in he 1970s and early 80s. They are part of the 2920 Sessions recorded in El Paso, TX. These songs are of special note to me because it was during this time period that I was hitchhiking back and forth across the United States living hand-to-mouth and working odd jobs just to stay alive. I did this for more than a decade all told. When completed, the entire 2920 Sessions collection will encompass the many different genres of music I have composed over the years. The Way Things Used To Be is available on Amazon and Spotify and on this site.

If I Could Play Jazz

James Robert Murphy

In cart Not available Out of stock

Creative material I wrote through the 1980s. Part of the ongoing 2920 Sessions. I am having a great time working with a few very talented El Paso artists like Ruben Gutierrez, Monica Gutierrez, Joshua Lucero, and Eric Boseman. When completed, I think this project will be an interesting compilation of work once completed

Expected release: July 4, 2020

Murphy/Bushaw Duo

Austin Jimmy Murphy and Curt Bushaw

Curt is one of the most talented bass players in the state of Texas. I have had the pleasure of performing with him several times over the past few years. This collection features a couple of live tunes and a couple of studio tunes. I will complete this session in 2020.

A History of Blues - Discs 1 - 4

Austin Jimmy Murphy

In cart Not available Out of stock

An award-winning 4-CD box set comprised of several recording sessions that took place beginning in 1978 and continued through 2008 in the Syracuse, NY area. The musicianship is outstanding. There are 48 songs in all. The collection features raw blues recorded on a single microphone in a bedroom setting to full blown-out sessions in a studio setting. Style-wise, I think it is one of the most fulfilling CDs ever produced for you true-to-heart blues lovers. Incredible harmonica playing by Matt Tarbell, Tom Townsley and Mike Petroff. Mark Tiffault, Garnett Grimm and Dave Petrovich on the drums. T.A. James, Paul "Big Daddy" LaRonde and "Hungry" Larry Stringer and Pat DeSalvo on bass. George Rossi and Scott Ebner contribute to the keys. Phil Petroff also guest stars on slide guitar on the opening tune. T.A. plays bass and slide on Baby Please Don't Go. Much of this 4-CD collection was recorded and/or mastered by Steve Lloyd at Screaming Skull Studio in Syracuse, NY. Man, we had some good times. The 4-disc set is available for $25. This includes shipping within the U.S. Disc 1 includes cuts 1-12. Disc 2 includes cuts 13-26. Disc 3 includes cuts 27-40. Disc 4 includes cuts 41-48.
