The Magnetic Fields69 Love Songs turns 25 this year, and to celebrate we’re giving it the Peak Vinyl treatment! The 25th Anniversary Silver Edition of 69 Love Songs features six 10-inch records, lovingly pressed on silver vinyl, with silver foil accouterments on the box and gatefold jacket. Stephin Merritt's widely acclaimed epic masterwork is a boxed set rumination on, of course, love. Funny, smart, dark, memorable, and a lifetime's worth of listening! 

69 Love Songs was originally released on CD in September of 1999, and fans and critics alike were ecstatic. The three-volume set became one of the most talked-about albums of that 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.
