Legend has it that Stephin Merritt came up with the idea for 69 Love Songs while sitting in an elegant midtown Manhattan piano bar. He originally planned for it to be a live musical revue, performed with a rotating cast of singers in the plush hotel bars and cabarets of New York City. Spanning indie pop, folk, cabaret, jazz, and chamber pop, 69 Love Songs was originally released in September of 1999 and immediately established Merritt as one of this generation's most talented songwriters. It drew worldwide attention with comparisons to legends Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. SPIN graded it 10 out of 10, Rolling Stone described it as "gorgeous," and the New York Times hailed the triple CD-set as a work of "genius." It remains one of the most beloved albums in the Merge catalog. This remastered limited edition 6 x 10" vinyl reissue is beautifully packaged in a slipcase box with three double gatefold sleeves and the original booklet in 10" size!
