Special Record Store Day Releases

 
Posted April 18th, 2014 @ 3:36pm

Record Store Day will be celebrated at independent record stores around the country on Saturday, including The Music Box on Navy Boulevard and Revolver Records on Gregory St. Jack White is attempting a a record with a record.

White will record what he claims will be the "World's Fastest-Released Record." He'll take the stage at Third Man Records in Nashville at 10 a.m. and record direct-to-acetate version of the title track from his upcoming album, Lazaretto. The masters will be whisked over to United Record Pressing, which will immediately begin pressing seven-inch singles, with the sleeves featuring pictures taken at the show. The finished records will be sent back to Third Man to sell to fans. As long as there are fans in line waiting to buy the single, United will continue to press and deliver them.
