Iconic shoegaze band My Bloody Valentine will finally reissue its influential back catalog on May 7th. In addition to expanded packages of 1988's Isn't Anything and 1991's Loveless, the quartet's four cherished EPs will be collected for the first time with rarities, non-LP tracks and unreleased material as the two-CD set EPs 1988-1991.

According to Pitchfork, both proper albums, originally issued by Creation Records in Britian, were remastered by MBV mastermind Kevin Shields at London's Metropolis Studios for release via Sony. Isn't Anything is a straight reissue, while Loveless will be packaged as a two-disc set to include a previously unreleased version of the album that Shields mastered from the original analog tapes.

The sequence for the reissues of Isn't Anything and both versions of Loveless will be unchanged from the versions that have been available for years. The track listing for EPs 1988-1991  is as follows:

"You Made Me Realise"
"Cigarette in Your Bed"
"Drive It All Over Me"
"Feed Me With Your Kiss"
"I Believe"
"Emptiness Inside"
"I Need No Trust"
"Don't Ask Why"
"Off Your Face"
"To Here Knows When"
"Honey Power"
"Moon Song"
"Instrumental no. 2"
"Instrumental no. 1"
"Glider (full-length version)"
"Good for You"
"How Do You Do It"

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
