Roy McBride & Willie Murphy

Traffic CD cover - Willie Murphy & Roy Mcbride


Poet Roy McBride teams up with Willie Murphy to present Traffic: Words by Roy with music by Willie. Originally recorded in 1986, the Traffic CD was released in 2008 after a duplicate master tape was found to replace the copy that was lost by the CD manufacturer.

"The artistic truth of the poetry and music in this work is timeless. The political poems are more pertinent now than when they were first recorded."
