A Message From Elliott:
Just A Story From America

Elliott Murphy - Abigail Rose Clark - Just A Story From America

Lots happening here in Murphyland folks. Ladies first, so let me begin by saying how thrilled I am to announce that Murphyland Records will release Abigail Rose Clark’s tremendously exciting version of “Just A Story from America” (the title track off my 1977 album of the same name) on all known streaming platforms (Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music etc.) on March 16, which, by the way, just so happens to be my birthday and for those of you who are interested in such things I’m born the same year as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Jerry Harrison, Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep and my Long Island homeboy Billy Joel. As Frank Sinatra would sing: It was a very good year!

Abigail Rose Clark is the daughter of Dane Clark (check out his own wonderful album Memory Mile (I co-wrote and sang on the title track). Dane also has the honored distinction of being the long-time drummer of one of my favorite artists of all-time – the great John Mellencamp. When I first heard Abigail’s version of JASFA I was completely blown away with the new life she has imbued in that nearly 50-year-old melody. She has energized JASFA with not only her amazing singing chops but also with her dad’s impeccable drumming (check out his monumental drum fill near the end of the song) and now I’m tempted to copy her arrangement from now on when I perform JASFA live.
