Hey fellow vinyl fans, Napkin Art here…
It’s a damn fine week to be a blues and vinyl fan, let me tell YOU. Hell, an overall music fan, in general! News coming down the wire today that Jack White’s Third Man Records and Document Records have teamed up to reissue complete recordings on vinyl from Charley Patton, Blind Willie McTell and The Mississippi Sheiks via Third Man Records!
From the Third Man Records camp:
“The recordings we’ll be presenting in this reissue series are the building blocks and DNA of American culture. Blues, R&B, Elvis, teenagerism, punk rock… it all goes back to these vital, breathtaking recordings. Third Man Records is proud to present these landmark albums in conjunction with Document Records, with brand new, jaw-dropping artwork by Rob Jones and new insightful liner notes, on vinyl for the first time in decades. Every record collection should have ample room for these highly important and endlessly listenable albums.”
Each artist’s recordings will be presented in chronological order in multiple volumes. Pre-orders for all Vol. 1 reissues are now taking place via the Third Man Records site and will be officially released on January 29th, where you can also hear sample tracks and watch the sneak peek trailer .
Where and how to purchase the special edition colored vinyl will be announced via TMR soon, so check back frequently to their site for updates.
