Did you just get a lot of rain?

Do you know if they were growing from the wood or the ground?  The cap looks smooth in the pics, was it?

And can you post a pic of the spore print?

What is your location Mushroom 69?

Proibably a species of Hypholoma, one of which is H. lateritium (Brick Caps). If they are growing on wood (possibly buried wood), then knowing the types of wood is useful. 

Mainly in western North America, Leratiomyces ceres produces mushrooms somewhat similar to Hypholoma mushrooms and with a similar dark purple-brown spore print. I don't think the ones seen here represent genus Leratiomyces. But I think it's worth mentioning.  

Some species of Hypholoma are considered to be toxic.
