Jack White Opens Recording Booth for Record Store Day

Jack White Record Store Day recording boothJack White seems to be taking his designated position as ambassador for Record Store Day quite seriously. The singer/guitarist will be giving Nashville musicians and record enthusiasts a chance to press some wax of their own at his Third Man Records studio this Saturday.

The Third Man Recording Booth, which will only be open for Saturday, is a refurbished Voice-O-Graph recording booth that will allow fans to record for up to two minutes, after which the recording will be pressed on to a six-inch disc.

“Actively venturing to your local record shop is one of those honors and privileges in this life that we just can’t take for granted,” White said in a statement. “Certain beautiful experiences can only happen in the environment of a record store and I just thought that nothing could drive that point home more than a one-of-a-kind machine that lets you not only record your own vinyl record, but send it to anyone, anywhere in the world to share a song, poem, or private message with. I know those warm, scratchy tones send tingles up (and sometimes down) my spine. Even if you aren’t instrumentally inclined, you could hold up an iPhone playing a song and sing along with the music and combine the best of all worlds tangible, digital and romantic.”
