  • Record Store Day 2012

    Posted by Third Man on 15 March 2012

    THE WHITE STRIPES

    Hand Springs w/ Red Death at 6:14
    Limited to red/black swirl vinyl for Record Store Day

    Continuing in the mission of reissuing the nuggets of the White Stripes’ back catalog, Third Man plays Dr. Frankenstein/matchmaker to two stand-alone songs from the high time of the year 2000. “Handsprings” was originally released as a split-single with the Dirtbombs and included free in issue #19 of Multiball magazine. “Red Death at 6:14” was initially released on the Jack White-produced compilation “Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit” and was later made available as a one-sided single from the folks at MOJO magazine. Both songs are quintessential White Stripes jams and finally pairing them together here makes (arguably) one of the best Stripes singles ever.

    TMR142

    KAREN ELSON

    Milk and Honey b/w Winter’s Going
    Limited to milk and honey colored vinyl for Record Store Day

    Karen Elson delivers a haunting version of the Jackson C. Frank gem “Milk and Honey” that brims with atmosphere and undeniable feeling. The b-side is a trucking version of Bonnie Dobson’s “Winter’s Going” that warms to the core. Another direct hit from Miss Elson.

    And for release during the week of Record Store Day...
