On Sept. 30, Third Man Records made a post on their “vault” page announcing the release  of their next round of limited-edition vinyl albums and goodies.

The meat of the release is a 2008 Raconteurs performance recorded in London, which is pressed to two 180-gram vinyl. Also being included in the package is a 7″ White Stripes single of  alternate takes of”Let’s Shake Hands” and “Look Me Over Closely.” “Let’s Shake Hands” was the first 7″ single released by the Detroit duo back in March 1998 during a limited pressing of 1,000 red-clear vinyl. There were subsequent 1,000-copy pressings in 2002 (black vinyl) and 2008 (with stenciled cover art by original artist Dion Fischer.)

Lastly, the second installment package will include a Rob Jones-designed Dead Weather screen print. Also to the appeasement of many fans, Third Man Records will be overhauling their shipping practices after many fans complained of bent records from round one.

Your turntable still lives on.
