The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs (6 x 10" - Indie Exclusive) (LP Box Set)

69 Love Songs (6 x 10
Not Currently Available
Released in 1999, The Magnetic Fields'€™ opus 69 Love Songs remails a singular achievement - a bold undertaking by one of pop music'€™s most innovative and acclaimed songwriters. Originally conceived by Stephen Merritt to be a live musical revue of 100 songs, he soon realised that 100 songs, even at two minutes each, would be far too long a show, and decided upon the next meaningful number, 69. 69 songs about life, loss, hope and beauty. 69 songs about the pursuit of that ever elusive and patently undefinable holy grail, love.

Now, this cult classic is receiving an exclusive, indies only vinyl reissue! Presented as a 6 x 10" box set, the package also includes a 24-page colour booklet with liner notes by Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) featuring rare photos and an in-depth interview and track-by-track feature with Merritt. A must for collectors!
