Expanded 180g 2LP Edition of Long Out Of Print 1985 Album featuring Previously Unreleased Outtakes & Live Tracks, All Sourced from the Original Masters

Consisting of the late Mark Sandman on two-string slide bass and vocals, Dana Colley on baritone saxophone, and drummer Billy Conway, Morphine turn any alleged restrictions of their instrumentation to their advantage on 1985's Yes. Opening with the monstrous riffs of "Honey White," the album takes Morphine's trademark low-rock sound to new, exciting, challenging heights. Colley swoops and soars, and on "Radar" and "Super Sex," he plays tenor and baritone sax simultaneously.

While certifiable pop hooks abound, the combo stretch the boundaries of rock on "Sharks" and "The Jury," two forays into near-spoken-word territory. Throughout the album, Sandman continues to baffle traditionalists with his provocative two-string slide bass, while Conway's soulful backbeat locks in the groove. Indeed, Morphine's third release offers some of Sandman's sleekest, most consistent songwriting efforts, and the band never again sounded so inviting. 

Out of print on vinyl for nine years and extremely scarce, this limited deluxe edition of Morphine's third studio album has been expanded to include a bonus LP of 10 live and studio rarities hand-picked by Dana Colley with audio mastered directly from the original source tapes.
