  • $ 105.98

Due to overwhelming popular demand, Merge Records has reissued The Magnetic Fields' epic 69 Love Songs on vinyl. The limited-edition 10-inch box set includes six records housed in a sturdy slipcase along with a full-size, 24-page color booklet featuring liner notes written by author Daniel Handler, a.k.a. Lemony Snicket.

69 Love Songs was originally released as a 3-CD set in September of 1999, and fans and critics alike were ecstatic. Funny, smart, dark, memorable, and a lifetime's worth of listening, the three-volume set became one of the most talked-about albums of the year and remains one of the most beloved releases in Merge's catalog. As SPIN magazine said, –Like the best cabaret, Stephin Merritt's triple-CD monsterpiece charms on contact, and like the best indie-pop, you'll want to unravel it endlessly."
