69 Love Songs

I'm listening to this Magnetic Fields album right now and it inspired me to write and say, well, how lovely it is.
Conceived as part of an ambitious project to write 100 love songs, Stephin Merritt apparently decided to stop at the far more poetic 69.

So, err, that's is really. 69 songs spread over 3 CDs - songs about love, and songs about songs about love. Sometimes simple, sometimes cynical, sometimes warped and painful. It's one great, unique and often overlooked album.

Just look at the reviews on the sticker in this photo if you don't believe me.

Nice as the CD Box Set was, 'The Lost Tapes' has finally been issued on 5 lovely slabs of vinyl. In a box. With a poster. And booklet.
