Biography

Boston, MA, USA (1984 – present)

Treat Her Right was a group formed in Boston, MA, USA in 1984. The band featured Morphine founder Mark Sandman on guitar, Billy Conway on drums, Dave Champagne on guitar, and Jim Fitting on harmonica. Singing and songwriting duties were shared by all but Conway.

Treat Her Right’s self-financed debut, Treat Her Right, was released on the small Boston label Soul Selects Records in 1986. It was a modest success; Champagne’s “I Got a Gun” and Sandman’s cover of James Blood Ulmer’s “Where Did All the Girls Come From?” received some play on college radio. “I Think She Likes Me” describes Sandman’s experience in a Fairplay, Colorado bar where a woman came on to him. The group signed to RCA Records, who reissued the debut in 1988.

Tied To The Tracks was issued in 1989. Sales did not meet RCA’s expectations. In the notes for their third record, the group writes, “RCA decided that if our little basement tape could do so well, why not spend fifty times more money and it will be fifty times better! (They think everything works like that.)” Treat Her Right were dropped from their RCA contract.

What’s Good for You was issued on Rounder records in 1991. The ragged, live-in-the-studio sound was partly modeled on the model established by Chess Records, which had released many classic and early records.

    Проект с Сэндменом априори не может быть плохим. Tied To The Tracks - самый шик.

    This band featured two guitars and no bass? Seems Mr. Sandman got really sick of it afterwards.
