5.0 out of 5 stars morphine at your service 18 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Any fan of Morphine will love this. The unreleased tracks are good enough to be on any previous studio album. The live tracks are an insight into just how well the band worked together on stage. 2 discs of morphine induced heaven!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cure for Everything 22 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't believe this album passed me by for 3 years! A whole CD worth of material you've not heard before and another CD worth of familiar material in alternative versions. It gives you a real insight into the musical genius of Mark Sandman, who seems to have gone to the Frank Zappa school of obsessive recording. Like Zappa's posthumous releases, this is not a collection of odds and ends that shouldn't have seen the light of day and it's sad that it remained in the "vault" for so long. A must for any Morphine fan. I hope there is even more to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 26 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Musicians are not a long-lived breed, and I still remember my shock and sense of loss on hearing of Mark Sandman's demise in 1999, already over 12 years ago . This double cd is a pretty good epitaph.It contains 35 tracks and lasts over 125 minutes.20 of the tracks are new to me, and the other 15 are live or alternate versions. The music as ever with Morphine is extremely good and highly individual(no generic stuff here).Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Do not go quietly ... 15 Oct 2009
By Impossibilium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection sneaked up on me and it was a great surprise.

I cant believe it's been over ten years since Sandman passed away. Morphine are still one of my favorite bands and in the intervening years the music gets played as much now as it did when it was newly released. This disc proves just how timeless and unique the sound Morphine created still is. It's hard to comprehend how much music Mark Sandman made that never got released, but you only have to look at this double CD set and the Mark Sandman Sandbox collection to realize that what went before was barely scratching the surface of what his imagination was capable of creating.

This release should be considered just as valuable to a Morphine fan as any other. The production may not have the studio sheen, the arrangements may not be fully realized but it contains all the elements that made Morphine irreplaceable; the Sandman baritone and dry wit, the vibrant and multi-textured saxophone, the silken rumbling thunderstorm of Sandman's bass and a few songs that expand the sound in different directions.

The music world is poorer now than it was ten years ago. Consider this an essential reminder of just how much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten years 14 Oct 2009
By T. T. Goodell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
has done nothing to diminish the vibrancy of that silky Morphine sound, the surprises in each Morphine innovation or the warm, languid feeling this music conjures forth. Although insiders who were expecting the 4 discs prepared years ago by Billy Conway and Dana Colley for the Morphine re-issue may be disappointed, these 2 do a respectable job of conveying the inventiveness of Mark Sandman and Morphine without merely repeating what fans have heard before. "New" songs like the raucous ode to pure desire "Come Over" (which they'd played live, but never issued) and even the goofy "It's Not Like That Anymore" (which was played by the Hypnosonics, another of Sandman's many bands) are pure and straight Morphine and Sandman; musically complex, smart, witty and oh-so sexy.

Disc 2 is partly occupied by a live set played on WMBR in the earlier days of Morphine. This performance, of course, was widely recorded, and has been available in bootleg form for a while. The improved sound quality of this version is worthwhile, but I was hoping to hear something I couldn't have simply recorded off the radio myself in 1992. Nonetheless, if you've haven't heard the WMBR bootleg, you will not be disappointed in the early versions of The Only One and Radar, with slightly different lyrics.

The very different take on Buena, perhaps Morphine's best song (Mark Sandman said so himself), and a variety of takes on songs on Morphine's last record, The Night, are a treat to any fan. Perhaps best of all are the softly whispered Lunch in Hell and Shade (I Know You: Part IV) that make a diehard Morphine fan believe Mark Sandman is out there still, speaking to us.

5.0 out of 5 stars hard to have enough 3 Jan 2010
By Stargrazer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Morphine, at the peak of their powers, were a sight to behold. Playing the second stage at the HORDE festival or playing an 8-song encore at Clutch Cargo's in Hamtramck, Michigan, this unconventional power trio was fierce and friendly all at once. Saxophonist Dana Colley might play two saxes at once. Mark Sandman exuded cool confidence with his brilliant 2-string bass, a living prophet of the full potential of minimalism. Drummer Billy Conway played in and out of the pocket, giving the grooves just the right amount of space and swing. The raucous bottled lightning of the live show transferred quite well to tape, actually, and Morphine gave us a string of great albums: Good, the amazing Cure For Pain, Yes, The Night, even the somewhat less polished Like Swimming. For those who couldn't get enough, compilations like B-Sides & Otherwise displayed the band's weirder, more expansive side. Bootleg Detroit hinted at their amazing live capabilities.

When I saw that a new double CD of unreleased Morphine material was out, it seemed natural to assume that it would be something like B-Sides & Otherwise -- odder songs, experiments, live tracks. Imagine my surprise and delight to hear the batch of previously unknown gems on At Your Service! By all reports, Sandman was a prolific writer and recorded songs constantly -- and At Your Service is a treasure trove. Many of these songs should have been classics, and might have eventually found their way onto studio albums if Sandman hadn't tragically died. Some others made regular appearances in Morphine's live set but the studio versions hadn't seen the light of day before this collection. Still others appear in wildly different forms. Then there's the material culled from two live radio broadcasts: familiar songs with unfamiliar spins and infectious live energy.

There are many, many standout tracks. While I might encourage the uninitiated to start with Cure For Pain (the album that turned me on to this great band) I can say with confidence that you'll eventually add this 2-CD compilation to your collection as it's hard to have enough Morphine. And impossible to have too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Take a Trip Together. 28 Oct 2009
By Jeremy S. Dobry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Lo & Behold! Ten years after the sudden departure of our dear friend Mark Sandman we are bestowed a gift. A treasure trove of musical diamonds has been unearthed. The new album, Morphine: At Your Service, has come to light. This double-disc album showcases 35 unreleased songs by the late band. Included are never before released songs, electrified live versions of fan favorites and alternate versions of other Morphine classics. It is essential listening to any fan, old or new.

Hearing Mark's voice again is much like hearing from a long lost friend. It is warm, familiar & always amusing. It is so easy to fall back into the old habits again & to lay back and let his beautiful legacy wash through your veins. Bliss upon bliss.

******

I hope that the deluge of material Mark Sandman recorded in his prodigous career will see the light of day as well. This & the Mark Sandman oxset, Sandbox, are an excellent start .

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of unreleased stuff-no filler at all! 5 Dec 2009
By Jeffrey A. Dickinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw these guys in concert 5 or 6 times and they were always great. Now we have some more stuff to listen to from Mr. Sandman and co. and, surprise, it's really good.
When I first heard about this I thought it might be rejected songs not worth hearing but there are some real gems here. "Patience" is an especially good track unlike anything else they recorded. There are many other songs here good enough to be on any of their albums. And the songs recorded live in their loft studio are very cool and often different arrangements of familiar tunes.
So, if you're wondering if this is worth purchasing the answer is a definite YES.
