THIRD MAN / XL

Boarding House Reach sees Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern. Written and conceived while holed up in a Spartan apartment with literally no outside world distractions, White exclusively used the same kind of gear he had when he was 15 years old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation). The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain - crunching rock 'n' roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country - all remapped and born anew to fit White's matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation. Boarding House Reach is a testament to the breadth of Jack White's creative power and his bold artistic ambition.

Boarding House Reach was produced by Jack White III and recorded at Third Man Studio in Nashville, TN, Sear Sound in New York, NY, and Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, CA; the album was mixed by Bill Skibbe, Joshua V. Smith, and White at Third Man Studio in Nashville, TN.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Existential questions, grooving rock and/or roll riffage, White's unmistakable vocals, and an impeccable attention to detail. Thoroughly brilliant, and completely essential. Get this up your ears.

Jack White announces the release of Lazaretto, the follow up to his debut album, 'Blunderbuss'. The new album is highlighted by the lead single and title track, "Lazaretto."

NB: The vinyl edition is the "ULTRA LP" version:
*180 gram vinyl
*2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
*1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
*Side A plays from the inside out
*Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
*Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
*Both sides end with locked grooves
*Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
*Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record
*Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering
*Different running order from the CD/digital version
*LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version.

STAFF COMMENTS

Andy says: Jack keeps it real, bringing back all the romance and wonder of beautiful vinyl with his enchanting "ultra" LP. The music ain't bad either!
