On and On with Elliott

We’re very excited to announce a new series of live downloads from Elliott called “On and On with Elliott.” Each month we’ll offer a new download via this website. The music will be available as high-quality MP3 files or full CD resolution FLAC files. Keep in mind that most of these downloads have not been professionally mixed and/or mastered, so they won’t always have the same audio quality you might get from an “official” release. That said, we think you’ll find the music quite rewarding despite a few possible flaws here and there. These downloads will vary in length, content and time period and they are most certainly going to be of interest to all of Elliott’s fans. If you have any questions about these downloads or experience any problems please contact Steve Wilkison.

These downloads are free, but to help support our efforts please consider making a donation via PayPal. We suggest 5€ for the MP3s and 8€ for the FLAC files, though any contribution is appreciated.

Elliott Murphy - Oxford Ale House 1977

Oxford Ale House 1977

Elliott Says: “The ‘On and On with Elliott’ live concert download this month is from 1977 and please excuse the sound quality which includes a few sudden volume changes, but I think the historical significance of this show makes it a valuable addition to our series. This show was from a short-lived band which included my faithful bassist Ernie Brooks as well as Mike Braun (who later went on to play with Graham Parker), the great backing vocalist Jennifer Jacobson (who now goes by Jenna Torres and is still a great singer/songwriter) and Ralph Schuckett who sadly passed away earlier this year. Ralph was a major contributor to my album Night Lights and went on to be a founding member of Todd Rundgren’s band Utopia. I always hoped to see him again somewhere down the road and when it came to the great musicians I’ve played with Ralph was always a hero to me.”

Recorded on November 1, 1977 at the Oxford Ale House in New Haven, Connecticut.

Elliott Murphy - Live In Caen 1983

Live In Caen 1983

Elliott’s memory – “I remember this day because after the show the band went to a restaurant to eat and in that restaurant was my future (and current) wife Françoise who was sitting at a nearby table. She was on tour with a group of actors and luckily one of them recognized me and we started talking. I’m sure I was in a good mood because the show had gone really well, Ernie, Jesse and I were really at the top of our game and not one mistake that I can hear in these 17 songs. Thanks so much to Yves Surlemont for sharing this recording with us.”
