Jack White loves limited edition curios, so it’s unsurprising that his label takes Record Store Day very seriously — so seriously, in fact, that Third Man Records released three separate announcements stating what kind of very expensive and very inessential stuff they would be hocking for this year’s holiday. Remember the scene in Spring Breakers when James Franco is showing off his baseball caps and weaponry exclaiming, “Look at all my sheeeeeeit!”? Replace Franco with White, the guns with some limited-edition nostalgia, and it’s a perfect accompaniment to the list below.
- A vinyl pressing of the White Stripes’ 2005 album Get Behind Me Satan, “gussied up” with 3D lenticular images, colored vinyl, and new mastering.
- Vinyl re-release of Elvis Presley’s earliest recordings, a 10″ 78 of “My Happiness” and “That’s When Your Heartaches Begin.” In addition, the Third Man Store will be displaying this original 10,” protected by bulletproof glass and an armed security guard. It did cost White $300,000 at auction, after all.
- A chance to record in the exact same way Elvis did in his first ever 1953 Sun Studios session. Advertised as “One mic, one song, cut directly to a 10″ lacquer disc.”
- Something called a SEPTAVOX Keyboard and TERZ amplifier. It’s basically just a synth with a built-in amp. Yes, it’s available in both black and yellow, the Third Man color scheme.
- Third Man exclusive electric 3-string guitar. Also black and yellow.
- Some band t-shirts.
- Some silkscreened postcards
- Lastly, the label will be “resurrecting the endlessly popular record crates from last Record Store Day” in addition to hosting live in-store performances.
… OK. You made it. Now watch the clip below.
