Kevin Shields will finally fulfill his years long promise of an analogue remaster.
Years after being promised by My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields, the band’s beloved back catalogue has been remastered for a reissue campaign
In June and July, Abbey Road mastering engineer Sean Magee shared photos of him and Shields cutting records from the original masters of Loveless at the famed London studio. When asked by a fan, Magee confirmed they were working on an “all analogue cut” of the legendary record.
In 2012, My Bloody Valentine reissued remastered CDs of Loveless, Isn’t Anything and a CD collections of rarities and EPs. The albums were reissued on vinyl by Plain Recordings back in 2003, but the band has never officially released the remastered records on vinyl, despite promising it for almost a decade.
There’s no timeline on when they may be done, but as the band’s former label Creation, who broke the news, put it, “with him working with the old analogue recordings things must finally be in progress.”
