Chris Murray's new album, Yard Sale, is now available, his very favorite unreleased tracks recorded over the past 15 years. A few have previously appeared on compilations, "best of" collections, or unofficial limited run releases, but most have sat silently in drawers full of cassettes and CDRs for years waiting to be heard.
From the oldest, Strong Physical Urge, recorded in 1994, to Let It Go, recorded summer 2009, these songs and recordings tell the tale of his life in music and as a person. They speak of the joy and the pain, the struggles and successes, and the dreams and disappointments of a path that was often uncertain but always very special and full of love.
Featuring excellent guest appearances by Lloyd Knibb, Lloyd Brevett and Cedric Brooks of The Skatalites, Vic Ruggiero and Jay Nugent of The Slackers, Brian Dixon and Jeff Roffredo of The Aggrolites, Ben Farrar and Eddie "Chiquis" Lozoya of Chris Murray Combo and many more, plus a co-writing credit to Neville Staple of The Specials and an engineering credit to Matt Embree of RX Bandits, Yard Sale showcases the depth of collaboration he has had the good fortune to connect with during his life in LA.
