Product Description

Japanese edition of the bluesy American alternative rock act's 1997 compilation with two bonus tracks added,'Anita' & 'Mary Won't You Call My Name'. 15 tracks total. The group's bassist/ vocalist Mark Sandman passed away in July, 1999 after collapsing on

From the Label

Released by Rykodisc on September 23, 1997, B-Sides and Otherwise (RCD 10387) is a must-have collection of Morphine rarities. Compiling out-of-print tracks, live radio sessions, film soundtrack recordings and compilation contributions, B-Sides and Otherwise spans the band’s first three albums, presenting guitar-less rock in all its glory. Sweltering grooves and potent live shows have earned Morphine heaps of well-deserved critical acclaim as well as a devoted, and growing, international fan base. Good, Cure for Pain and Yes each delivered a mesmerizing dose of soon-to-be vintage low-rock tunes. Morphine's fourth album, Like Swimming, released jointly by Dreamworks and Rykodisc, continues in the tradition unique to the guitar-less trio while exploring new identities and new instruments. From the steamy opener of a live take on "Have A Lucky Day" to "Pulled Over the Car" from the Japanese version of Yes, B-Sides and Otherwise offers up a collection of little-known gems and hard-to-find classics from the Morphine vaults.

very different from the norm. sometimes its not about what YOU think a band should be about. sometimes its about the band messing their fans a little. this isn't typical morphine. if all you can stomach is typical morphine (or typical anything) you are wasting your time and money. for those of you that are open to some cool and weird stuff, you'll love it. i promise. doodoobrad >>> atl >>> GA.

here in your living room." If you appreciate Mark Sandman's poetic artistry coupled with the murky, liquid milieu of Billy Conway and Dana Colley, this CD is for you. It contains more musical poetry (or is it poetic music?) than any other Morphine CD. Listen with the lights off; let the sounds envelop you, and you will see what I mean.

B-Sides is a great addition to your Morphine collection. Few songs on this album contain the rythmic pulse of songs from the "Yes" set with two exceptions - Most of the album consists of their cryptic passages and moody background music. While not Morphine's standard bearing sound - a solid and fun album for any fan or newbie.

This is not the same ol' useless collection of "throwaway" tracks that most bands seem to offer when they put forth a b-sides/non-album tracks collection, but then Morphine is not "most bands". I'd long been a fan of Mark Sandman's "other" band (Treat Her Right), especially their 1988 debut album, but for whatever reason, never followed him over to Morphine. However, after recently listening once again to my Treat Her Right cd's and wanting more, I had decided I needed to look into Morphine. A day or two later, fate intervened and I stumbled across this collection in a used cd shop and decided to gamble. I rarely buy cd's without being more familiar with the band and/or that specific cd, and when I do, I usually regret it, but with this cd I feel like I've discovered a new favorite band!

Being a b-sides collection, most would say this is the worst place to start with Morphine, but I am really digging it and after just a couple of listens liked it enough that I went and bought another cd of theirs the very next day (Cure for Pain). Still digesting that one, but THIS is a great cd! Tracks 1-6 are just outstanding and really sold me on this band. The "live" takes of "All Wrong" and "Have A Lucky Day" in particular are outstanding and easily trump the studio versions found on other Morphine albums, and they aren't really "live" per se, ie, not recorded in front of a concert audience. Instead they are studio quality live broadcasts performances from a radio studio. B-sides, outtakes, whatever, these are just great songs with a great sound.

The second half of the cd is not as strong and contains several tracks that aren't "songs" so much as sound poems (sound effects & some instrumentation topped with spoken "vocals").
