Every once in a while, Jack White’s Third Man Records will take some older music and make vinyl art-objects out of it, sending the results out to whoever subscribes to its Vault Package series. The latest Vault Package is given over to Loretta Lynn’s 2004 album Van Lear Rose. White produced the country legend’s comeback album and duetted with her on “Portland, Oregon,” and the Vault Package will include a fancily pressed new vinyl version of the album, including unreleased song “Just To Have You Back.” It’ll include a recently filmed DVD documentary about the album, which includes Lynn and White reminiscing about it. And it’ll also include a 7″ of two unreleased White Stripes cover of Loretta Lynn songs. A studio version of Lynn’s 1973 classic “Rated X” was originally intended to be the flip of the band’s famous cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene.” And there’s also a live cover of Lynn’s “Whispering Sea,” recorded at the Gorge Amphitheater in 2005. Below, listen to a quick clip of that “Rated X” cover and watch a live video of the band covering the song in Detroit in 2001.
