Critics praised Elliott’s 2017 album, PRODIGAL SON (4 **** Rolling Stone France) which was produced and mixed by Elliott’s son Gaspard Murphy, an outstanding producer in his own right. Gaspard utilized hi-tech procedures to restore the original tapes of PARTY GIRLS AND BROKEN POETS to pristine condition, making it possible for him to re-mix this legendary record using all the modern technology available while keeping the integrity of the original recording.
Also recently released: AQUASHOW DECONSTRUCTED (2016) – a new version of the classic Elliott Murphy album Aquashow (1973) which will surely go down in rock history as an important work from the golden age of rock ’n roll that marked the beginning of a storied musical career that continues strong thirty-five years later.
Elliott will be on tour in the USA in Autumn 2018.
