MBV- These Are Your Bloody Rarities Vol 2.

Artist - My Bloody Valentine
Title - These Are Your Bloody Rarities, Vol. 2
Hometown - UK
Label - Peacock Records (let's call it an import label wink wink)
RIYL - Rare MBV, shoegaze
The Hits - Never Say Goodbye, Strawberry name a few
Richter Magnitude Scale - Moderate

Tracks 1-18 represent the all the music from Ecstasy and Wine, the You Made Me Realize EP, and the Feed Me With Your Kiss EP.

The sound quality for everything is decent but obviously lacking the depth, warmth, and bass of the original recordings. Since the MBV boxset doesn't look like it will be released anytime soon this collection and Volume 1 (which has all the other EPs on one disc) might be worth while for the serious fan who can't afford to buy all the rare EPs and singles.

I would normally never review one of these kinds of records but for you hardcore MBV fans this might be worth tracking down for three reasons. (listed below)

1) Track 19 is from a 7" flexi "The Catalogue #67 and is called Sugar and relatively rare.

2) Track 20 in an instrumental track from a 7"

3) Tracy 21 is another instrumental track taken from Pensioners on Ecstasy CD.


  1. Tracy 21 is my favorite!!

  2. Was Ecstasy and Wine actually released on CD?

  3. As far as I know, legit wise, no.
