Lab Overview

"Deluxe vinyl reissue of Morphine’s 1997 album Like Swimming, which features such favorites as 'Early to Bed,' 'French Fries with Pepper,' and 'Eleven O’Clock', marking the very first availability of the title on wax. The album has been lovingly remastered by Pete Weiss at Boston’s Jade Cow Music, with lacquers cut by John Golden. Rounding out the package is a 20-page booklet, featuring rare and never-before-seen images from the band’s archives, including photos by Lana Z. Caplan and Danny Clinch, artifacts from Morphine’s career, and unseen art by the band’s late frontman, Mark Sandman. Dedicated to the memories of Sandman and late drummer Billy Conway, produced with the full support of Morphine’s surviving members (drummer Jerome Deupree and saxophonist Dana Colley), as well as the band’s friends, family members, and collaborators. Formed in 1989, Morphine quickly gained a name for themselves in Boston’s underground scene, thanks to their unconventional instrumentation, their clever, offbeat lyricism, and their utterly unique sound. Amid the ‘90s signing boom, it was only inevitable that the major labels would come calling. As the trio began work on their fourth studio album, they received an enticing offer from the newly-founded Dreamworks Records. But signing with the LA-based label would be both a blessing and a curse—particularly for Morphine’s supremely independent frontman. In his liner notes for Like Swimming , Ryan H. Walsh suggests that after years of uncertainties, the band’s newfound sense of security carried over into their songwriting." - Modern Classics Recordings
