Description

Offered for sale is a still sealed U.S. copy of Bloodrock 2 by Bloodrock.

About this copy: This copy of Bloodrock 2 is a sealed U.S. pressing on the Capitol label.

As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.  Label variation is unknown, it may be on the green, orange, or (unlikely) purple Capitol labels, but the record feels fairly thick, so it’s likely a green label pressing.

The shrink wrap is fully intact except for a 1″ split at the mouth of the cover at the lower right hand corner.  There’s a tiny dent near the upper right hand corner about the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen.

A gorgeous copy of an album that’s usually found in horrible condition with lots of cover wear.

Background: Released in 1971, Bloodrock 2 was the second album by Bloodrock.

The album reached #21 on the U.S. album chart and was certified gold. The single “D.O.A.” reached #36 on the U.S. singles charts.

Allmusic.com gave Bloodrock 2 a 2 1/2 star review:

On their second outing, Bloodrock became a hitmaking proposition thanks to the success of “D.O.A.” Despite the morbid nature of this hit, the album is not another spooky epic like their debut. This time out, the group keeps the music fairly heavy but goes for a lighter feel in the songwriting. … The best moments on Bloodrock 2 are those that go for the spooky feel of the first album: “Fallin'” uses crashing drums and descending riffs to bring the lyric’s mood of depression to life, and “D.O.A.,” which graphically recounts the last thoughts of a plane-crash victim, became a surprise pop chart hit thanks to its powerfully spooky arrangement. Ultimately, Bloodrock 2 offers enough solid tracks to appeal to the group’s devotees, but casual fans who just want to hear “D.O.A.” would be better off hunting that song down on a compilation.
