Pokey LaFarge, The White Stripes, Melvin & Charlie Patton All Out with New Releases
Friends, family, fans, and followers (known as the 4Fs in the "Biz") of Third Man can welcome a late summer/early September flurry of activity and releases beginning no sooner than... right now. Let's dive right in shall we?
Released Aug. 20th:
Yes, the very song Pokey played on his LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN last month. Pack up your portable record player and sit by the Ohio River blasting this gem of a tribute to living in the good ol' Midwest, featuring super snazzy artwork, and non-album B Side "St. Louis Crawl." Sitting at the crossroads of early jazz, country blues and western swing, these two homegrown tracks are enough to make any damn yankee, mountain man or California dream reconsider their stomping grounds.
At long last the Live at Third Man LP from hyper enigmatic rock n roll pop guitar god King Tuff hits the shelves. Recorded back on lucky Friday the13th of July, 2012, TMR is super excited to have this epic set as a part of the live series of records from Third Man available to and for the people. Check the shred-tastic groover "Just Strut" right here https://soundcloud.com/thirdmanrecords/king-tuff-just-strut-live-at and now and try and tell us it doesn't make you wanna spray paint "Tuff Enough" on your locker and then kick flip off the back of an AMC Ambassador and skate off into nighttime oblivion... Get your live vinyl now and get revved up for the mighty King Tuff headed out on tour starting next September. Check all the dates at: http://www.kingtuffworld.com/shows/
This is the official release date for the long-awaited reissue of The White Stripes fourth album and major label debut. TMR is pleased to announce that this 180 gram black vinyl version has been mastered direct from the original, analog source for the 2002 recordings at Toe Rag Studious. The discs come housed in a double-gatefold sleeve, with printed inner sleeves and an MP3 download card. This album dedicated to the death of the sweetheart is still as poignant today as when it was originally released 10 years ago. We draw a firm line here... you can't consider yourself a White Stripes fan without this record on your shelf.
Volume 3: Charlie Patton, Blind Willie McTell and Mississippi Sheiks Complete Recorded Works Document Records Reissue LPs
The much anticipated 3rd volume from our re-issue series of the complete works of Charlie Patton, Blind Willie McTell and The Mississippi Sheiks hit the shelves. Casual fans of American Music and history and blues completists alike, this is your time to rejoice.
Melvins - Live At Third Man LP
The mighty Melvins stomped through Third Man last May and threw down an epic live set on the label's Direct To Disc live to acetate system. The results of that evening of legends doing a legendary set are coming your way on Sept. 10th on glorious vinyl. Tell the people.
All that and a whole lot more coming your way over the coming weeks and months. As always, stay tuned for all the excitement coming your way from the most recklessly fun label in the business.
