On June 25th, Jack White’s Third Man Records will release live albums from The Shins, The Kills, and Seasick Steve, all of which were recorded direct-to-acetate at Third Man Records’ Blue Room in Nashville, TN.

According to a press release:

Without overdubs or editing, all three records were recorded at the Third Man Blue Room last October, mixed in real time on a Rupert Neve 5008 console by Grammy Award winning engineer Vance Powell, and instantly cut to vinyl by master cutter George Ingram using a 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati’s legendary King Records (the story goes that James Brown’s It’s A Man’s World was cut on this lathe among many more great sides).

Third Man is the only live venue in the world that currently offers such a process.

The live albums, available individually or as a bundle, can be purchased through Third Man’s website. Watch a trailer for the albums, including footage from Seasick Steve’s performance, below.
