Tomorrow marks the official release of JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS 1998-2016, a 26 track double LP and double CD featuring remastered alternate versions, mixes, and previously unreleased recordings from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and Jack’s solo catalog. To celebrate, we're making a day of it in our Nashville and Detroit storefronts...
Not only will we have the only exclusive, limited edition version of the double LP available for sale (one per customer), but we will also launch new Jack White merchandise in both locations: an album cover t-shirt, new logo sticker, notebook, and a Fill-Your-Own 45 Box Born Rotten Bundle.
See the goods below:
AND to top it all off, we're throwing all-day parties at both locations. Read on for details...
In Nashville, you can expect...

“What Acoustic Recordings best illustrates, though, is a consistency to White’s songwriting that has endured through his myriad of projects, even as his music has swung unpredictably between playfulness and intensity” - Uncut

We at Third Man Records love every turntable, but we'd be lying if we told we loved them all equally. We play favorites, and we can't help it. Throughout the coming weeks, we will be highlighting some of our favorite gear available at thirdmanstore.com. This week? Our Limited Edition Pro-Ject Turntable. It's our first audiophile turntable and it only has with one thing in mind: sonic transcendence. The radical design, shape of the chassis with decoupled motor, inverted main bearing, and newly designed tone-arm guarantee that this turntable is a worthy and sizable upgrade to your listening station. The Limited Lightning features a factory-mounted moving magnet cartridge, an inverted chrome-plated, stainless steel axle that rests on a polished steel bearing in a bronze housing for low wow-and-flutter and speed accuracy, three nylon cone feet to further reduce noise and vibration, and a three point MDF plinth with an isolated motor assembly optimized for low noise and speed stability. Is that Greek to you? Let us translate: this turntable will make your records SING.
Want one? You're in luck... they're available for an EXTRA NICE PRICE this week/weekend only. The deal ends on Monday. Don't delay!
