A man called Sandman named his band for another god of dreams. Their sound was low and their aspirations high. 30 years ago, they achieved both with a song about loving the devil you know.
I've been listening to the podcast. But totally forgot the benefits of your newsletter: the footnotes !!! They're the bonus track material we music peeps adore! Thank you sir!
Loved Morphine back in the day. Saw them several times in the late 90's in all of the places they'd play in NYC (Hammerstein, Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall). Buena is one of their finest! BTW Buena appeared in a season 1 Sopranos episode, the one with the soccer coach. Video was even in it too! They also had a song in the film Get Shorty as well.
I just downloaded Buena. Thanks for reminding me of a song I had totally forgotten I really liked! It's sad that so many amazing musicians have left this earth too soon. Thank you for doing your great part at keeping the memories alive!
