  • White Stripes Elephant-Era Singles

    Posted by Third Man on 27 February 2015

    Remember Vault Package #19 with those 4 coveted clear vinyl White Stripes 7" singles from the Elephant era? Surprise! The black vinyl versions are now available! The four singles ("Seven Nation Army," "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself," The Hardest Button to Button," and "There's No Home For You Here") feature badass non-album b-sides, 3 of which are covers of songs from some of Detroit's turn-of-the-millenium best and brightest (Brendan Benson, Jason Falkner, Dan Miller (Blanche), Soledad Brothers), and one of which is a live White Stripes medley of "I Fought Piranhas" and "Let's Build a Home," recorded at New York's legendary Electric Lady Studios.


    Most of these tracks have been remastered from the original analog sources, and the artwork on all the singles has been improved upon by the Third Man Creative Hive. "There's No Home For You Here", which was originally coupled with a generic company sleeve, now has stunning new artwork. It looks electrifying! On top of looking good, these sleeves are soft as a baby, printed with an aqueous coating, so they feel like a cross between rubber and lambskin. It's nice. 


    So, if you missed Vault Package 19, or if you just don't want to wear out your clear copies, pick up these four singles in our online store or Nashville storefront now. Also available as a bundle for only $20.

  • Record of the Week... ROCKFIRE FUNK EXPRESS

    Posted by Third Man on 23 February 2015

    Before Death became Death in '74, the Hackney Brothers (David, Dannis, and Bobby) of Detroit operated under the moniker Rockfire Funk Express. We were so pleased to release the "People Save the World" 7" in May of 2013 and share with the world this piece of un-sung, primordial pre-punk, which was recorded at the same legendary Detroit studio that hosted John Coltrane, John Lee Hooker and MC5: United Sound Systems. After sitting in a can all-but-forgotten for 40 years, we don't want anyone to forget that this single now sits on our website, ripe for the pickin' and listenin'... so... we've made it RECORD OF THE WEEK! Pick your nicely priced copy here for only $4 this week. You're welcome.

  • Black Bat Licorice Manufacturing Delay

    Posted by Third Man Records on 23 February 2015

    As many of you know, last week was one of inclement weather here in our small Tennessee hamlet. Unfortunately, this has affected manufacturing time for Jack White's new single "That Black Bat Licorice," which was meant to be officially released today. As of right now, we don't have any in house to sell at our store front, so anyone coming into the shop today to purchase will receive complimentary shipping for us to send the 7" out to you as soon as we have product to send. This also means that pre-orders will not be fulfilled until we are stocked. We will let you know the moment we are flush with the good stuff, and in the meantime, we truly appreciate your patience. It shouldn't be long now, friends... 

    Unfortunately, Black Bat Licorice manufacturing has been delayed due to weather.
