What I probably was listening to most this week...20 years ago. This track is not at all representative of the trio Morphine's unique vocal-bass-drums-sax sound, which I love (and have missed since Mark Sandman's death). But I love this album even more for its exploration down this side road, bringing friend Jimmy Ryan's beautiful mandolin into play. Enjoy this, then go find the heart of this disc in the classic tracks"Buena," "Thursday" and the title track "Cure for Pain." (Album released September 14, 1993)
Busy getting nostalgic. This album turned up at home when my dad read a review and was intrigued by the two-string bass and baritone sax combination (he played bass, I played sax). We both fell for Morphine.
