The My Bloody Valentine back catalogue has been refreshed after the band signed a deal with Domino.
The physical re-releases which were announced with the news that My Bloody Valentine had signed with Domino Records and made their music available on digital streaming services for the first time back in March have proved popular at the UK’s independent record shops this week.
The band’s enduring 1991 effort Loveless leads the way, with Isn’t Anything at #5, MBV at #7 and the rarities and EPs collection at #15.
Elsewhere, Gruff Rhys enters at #2 with his new solo album Seeking New Gods, and after gaining some ground aheadof its full release yesterday, black midi’s second LP Cavalcade begins life at #16.
It’s now nine years since The Official Charts Company launched this chart as vinyl sales surged during the last decade, a trend which continued in 2020 as the format grew for the 13th consecutive year. It is compiled from the best selling albums at 100 of Britain’s leading independent music shops.
