Jack White: Come to my Studio & Record Like Elvis
Jack White will open up his Third Man Records store in Nashville, Tennessee to fans who want to record a single the way Elvis Presley did. Straight to tape.
White was recently revealed as the buyer behind the $300,000 sale of Elvis Presley’s first record. The former White Stripes man will now reissue the record on vinyl for Record Store Day this Saturday (April 18).
“In the spirit of Elvis’ first recordings, Third Man Records will open up the Blue Room to lucky fans and give them the opportunity to record themselves in the exact same way Elvis did in his first session at Sun Records in Memphis back in June of 1953,” White wrote on his Third Man Records website.
The stripped-back set-up will involve “one mic, one song, cut directly to a 10-inch lacquer disc. Cut at 45rpm to be accommodating,” White stated.
