Today, Merge Records will reissue The Magnetic Fields’ classic Holiday on 180-gram vinyl, marking the album's first appearance in LP format. Holiday was originally released in 1994 by Feel Good All Over and subsequently reissued on CD by Merge in 1999.
The album has been remastered for vinyl by Jeff Lipton at Peerless Mastering.
Salon wrote a review of the album back in 1999, saying “Holiday shouldn’t be missed—it’s Merritt’s most sonically striking record to date, and it’s full of darkly hilarious, inconceivably catchy songwriting.” You can read the full article here.
In addition to the LP, we are offering a limited-time, specially priced 4x LP bundle of all three Magnetic Fields vinyl re-pressings (Holiday, Charm of the Highway Strip, and Get Lost) plus Stephin Merritt’s recently released Obscurities. All LPs include a download coupon.
