Matt "Guitar" Murphy and "Last Call at the 40 Watt Club" release.
"When Matt moved to Miami we started a nationwide search for live recorded shows. Most of the tapes were too poor quality or incomplete. This past winter Pat Biddle contacted Matt with shows he had recorded while on a 12-year stint as soundman at The 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA. The result is a post-Blues Brothers CD that has Matt with all his virtuosity intact in a roadhouse full-tilt performance. The CD release was set for summer 2011 on BMGI. Internet downloads were available on July 4th."
