The Way Things Used to Be

by Austin Jimmy Murphy

The Way Things Used To Be is a partial collection of my favorite folk/country songs I wrote in the 1970s and 80s while wandering aimlessly around the United States. I found my way and now it's time to share those wonderfully creative days gone by.

Album Notes
In the 1980s and early 90s I recorded a number of songs in various locations around Upstate NY. My favorite sessions were compiled in a living room in an apartment my wife and I shared at 820 Avery Ave. I refer to these sessions as the 820 Sessions. The material selected for this CD, The Way Things Used To Be is referred to as the 2920 Sessions and are mainly comprised of songs I wrote as I hitchhiked all over the grand country. I roamed around for about eight years washing dishes, picking apples, doing construction work and anything that would give me a few bucks to keep moving. It was a wonderful time. Hitchhikers were everywhere, unlike today.
The selected tunes are simple songs of love, broken hearts and discovery.
Producing the music here at 2920 Stone Edge Rd. in El Paso, TX has been truly magical. And I mean that. The way the music came together is something I have never experienced before. I have always loved creating music but have never taken time until now to seriously produce a work with wonderful themes and melodies. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoy creating it. I have been ending my messages lately with this phrase: Peace and Love from an Old Hippie.
