Morphine Revisited

I still remember the first time I listened to Morphine. I bought the CD without hearing them before, I only read a review that included a quote from the lead singer of Blues Traveler saying how Morphine blew his mind or something like that. I thought that was worth giving it a try (ahh the days before being able to hear everything on the Internet before buying it) so I picked up Cure For Pain. It blew me away. After getting through the short intro it just launches into the song Buena with arguably the smoothest/catchiest bass-line you'll ever hear. All played on a 2-string fretless bass with a slide. From there I was hooked.
