Jack White enjoyed his time as “Record Store Ambassador” this year, delivering copies of Third Man Records releases to various record stores throughout the country and just bringing attention to the world of vinyl records. Back at his own Third Man Records, on Record Store Day, White recorded a cover of Loretta Lynn’s 1970 “Coal Miner’s Daughter” to commemorate the day.
The song was recorded in a booth that White installed in his Nashville, T.N store in which takes the recording from the booth and translates it to vinyl. Two engineers monitored the booth for Record Store Day to ensure that the quality being produced throughout the day was only the best.
A Sir-Mix-A-Lot cover, birthday messages, a marriage proposal, and poems were said to be captured on vinyl with the booth on this day.
Neil Young was also said to have stopped by and used the booth to create his own record from Record Store Day. Now, the booth will always be found within the Third Man Records Store to offer more instant vinyl with the warmth of the sound created within this booth.
White described Third Man Records’ Record Store Day, on the store’s blog, to be taken with great anticipation with people waiting overnight and performances by Karen Elson and Mark Watrous.
