Morphine Cure for Pain (ROG) 180g Vinyl 2LP
Expanded 180g Vinyl 2LP Reissue with Bonus LP of Previously Unreleased Tracks and B-Sides Making Their Debut on the Format; Remastered from the Original Master Source for the First Time
"Low-rock" was one way enigmatic Morphine frontman Mark Sandman used to describe his band's beat-inspired blues-jazz-rock holy racket. Along with Sandman's baritone vocal delivery and laconic two-string bass styling, co-founder Dana Colley played a saxophone as his lead instrument of choice instead of the expected guitar, creating a quirky and burning sensibility.
Original drummer Jerome Deupree, who was replaced by percussionist Billy Conway during the recording of 1993's Cure For Pain, flushed out the unorthodox trio.
Home to the essential numbers "Buena," "Sheila," "Candy," and the moving title-track "Cure For Pain," this 180g vinyl 2LP reissue from Run Out Groove expands the album with a bonus LP of previously unreleased tracks and B-Sides making their debut on the format.
It's also been remastered from the original master source for the first time and comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on style jacket.
