MORPHINE – Jazzy Debut Album ‘GOOD’ Released Twenty-Five Years Ago…

7 September 2017

Band: MORPHINE (Boston, US)
Album: GOOD – debut LP released 8 September 1992 – 25 years ago…
All Music wrote: “Morphine’s debut album, 1992’s Good, did a splendid job of introducing
the Boston trio’s highly original sound. While it was the alternative crowd who immediately latched onto Morphine, their music was geared more toward the jazz scene. A wailing saxophone, lead bass (played with a slide), and lyrics influenced by ’50s beat poetry were
all-important ingredients. The opening title track remains one of the band’s darkest, while
other selections are a bit more upbeat. Morphine would improve further on the strength of
their songwriting and cutting-edge sound, but ‘Good’ still contains more than a few standouts…”

Three Top Tracks: Cure For Pain / Have A Lucky Day / The Other Side…

* CURE FOR PAIN (with lyrics) – stunning sax, cool flow…

* HAVE A LUCKY DAY (with lyrics) – sultry beauty…

* THE OTHER SIDE – jazzy, haunting, escapistic…
