Third Man Direct-To-Acetate Recordings Out June 25 – The Shins / The Kills / Seasick Steve

| |

Third Man records will release three very special live records – The Shins, The Kills, and Seasick Steve – on June 25th that represent the first three releases recorded live using Third Man’s one-of-a-kind direct-to-acetate recording process.

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).

The Shins, The Kills and Seasick Steve Live at Third Man 12″ records will be available June 25th individually or as a bundle (North America-only) HERE and at Third Man Records in Nashville, TN, with online pre-orders starting now. Black & Blue split-color vinyl, available only to those who attended the corresponding show and pre-ordered at the time will be available for pick-up at our Nashville store beginning on release date.
