Run Out Groove CORNERSTONES are records that we believe should be a foundational part of everyones music collection. ROG CORNERSTONES are limited, but not numbered and produced in pre-determined quantities available for extended pre-order periods.

With assistance from saxophonist Dana Colley, ROG have gone back to the original master tapes for the first time to cut lacquers and our mastering team has produced the best sounding version of this album. This expanded edition will include a bonus LP of rarities that features rare Yes-era B-sides never released on vinyl, unreleased outtakes from the Yes sessions and unreleased live broadcast recordings making their debut.
Out of print since 2009! Sourced from the original masters and cut to lacquers for the first time! Includes a bonus LP of Yes-era rarities that are previously unreleased or making their debut on vinyl. Comes in a gatefold Stoughton tip-on sleeve with new art and commentary from Dana Colley.
Limited to 3500 copies worldwide!
One of the most unique, original and unusual rock bands to burst onto the alternative scene in the '90s, Morphine was originally formed by vocalist/bassist Mark Sandman, saxophonist Dana Colley and drummer Jerome Deupree (later replaced by Billy Conway) in Cambridge, MA in 1989. They expertly combined blues, jazz and rock elements into a very distinct style, anchored by Sandmans deep, crooning, beat-style vocals. Rather than having an electric guitar as the focal point like most rock bands, the trios sound was built around Sandmans two-string electric bass (often deployed with a slide) and Colleys growling, baritone sax which was dubbed as low-rock.
The band enjoyed critical acclaim but saw mixed results commercially. They did enjoy higher profile success overseas, especially in Belgium, Portugal, France and Australia where they were featured on music television programming frequently and filled much larger venues. After five studio albums and extensive touring, Morphine disbanded following Sandman's tragic death of a heart attack performing on stage at the Giardini del Principe in Palestrina, Italy. Surviving members have soldiered on in various incarnations, the most recent being the Vapors of Morphine.
Yes was the bands third studio record originally released on Rykodisc in March of 1995. It was their first album to make the Billboard Top 200 where it peaked at #101, but did not sell as well abroad as their two previous records. Criminally out of print on wax for nine years, Run Out Groove reissues this classic from the '90s as a deluxe expanded 2LP edition that includes a 2nd disc of many previously unreleased outtakes, live tracks and rare B-sides making their debut on vinyl.
