"Lazaretto" - to be released on June 10th and judging by this instramental track is going to be a stomper!
No doubt another date announced when this sells out.
Am I the only person hearing shit loads of Rage Against the Machine here?
- 180 gram vinyl
- 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
- 1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
- Side A plays from the inside out
- Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
- Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
- Both sides end with locked grooves
- Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
- Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record
- Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering
- Different running order from the CD/digital version
- LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version
If I buy a record, I want to play it from start to finish. I don't want to piss about varying the speeds and thinking where I put the needle on any given side.
I like to hope most vinyl enthusiasts have their palms pressed firmly to their faces at that lot.
That said, I watched the video and now I'm sold :D
I'm guessing the reel-to-reel and 8-Track market was negligible in 1967 in any case.
Is the groove cut in a reverse spiral?
presumably you'd need to peel off the labels to play those hidden tracks?
Not having that.
Third Man did the same with a Dead Weather album and the Conan O'Brien single. Because the groove's pressed into the paper, it sounds pretty terrible.
and they sound like dirt
I'm sure there will be a standard version if the vinyl too (can't see a crazy vinyl like that selling for any less than £30)
pretty sure this is the standard version
just wish it was being done by a remotely fun band
There are about 4 White Stripes singles and one solo single (Sixteen Saltines) that are undeniable blasts of rock genius. However, the rest of his output is so uniformly boring I just can't be arsed to check out what he does anymore.
His first solo album was OK. Not too fussed about anything else he's been involved with.
