Jack White Teams Up With Obscure Scottish Label To Reissue Early Blues Records
Jack White's Third Man Records has teamed up with an obscure Scottish label to reissue early blues records. White's label has partnered up with Document Records to reissue the complete works of Charley Patton, Blind Willie McTell and The Mississippi Sheiks on remastered vinyl. A release date has been set for January 29. "Third Man Records is thrilled to announce the release of the first three records in our highly-anticipated Document Records reissue series," said the label in an online statement. They continued: "The recordings we'll be presenting in this reissue series are the building blocks and DNA of American culture. Blues, R&B, Elvis, teenagerism, punk rock... it all goes back to these vital, breathtaking recordings. Every record collection should have ample room for these highly important and endlessly listenable albums." White reportedly chose to work with Document Records as the label, owned by husband-and-wife team Gary and Gillian Atkinson, had released a clutch of blues albums that he bought when he was a kid. Co-founder Gillian Atkinson hopes that by working together with White on the reissue project, they'll encourage younger music-buyers to take interest in the blues genre. "What this collaboration has done, and Jack in particular, is open up a whole new younger market, and he's reaching it", NME reports. Pre-orders are available online via the Third Man Records website. The records will be released on January 29. You can watch a trailer for the Document Records reissue series below.
