reports, Jack White
has recorded a cover version of "Coal Miner's Daughter"
by Loretta Lynn
in the Third Man Records recording booth that was set up for Record Store Day
. The booth, which was set up at Jack White's Third Man Records store in Nashville, is a 1947 Voice-o-Graph. The booth is the only public vinyl recording booth in the world, and allows for up to 111 seconds of audio to be cut to a six-inch phonograph disc.Across the Record Store Day weekend, a number of fans queued to use the booth, including rock legend Neil Young
. It is as yet unknown what Neil Young recorded, although a photograph of him exiting the booth has been posted on the Third Man website.
Third Man Records has released the following statement:"The dozens of people who waited in line to record their very own 111 seconds of vinyl magic walked away with one-of-a-kind audio mementos that we (and they) will never forget. Whether it was a marriage proposal, folk song, last will and testament, poem, one act play, a Sir-Mix-a-Lot cover or birthday greetings, accompanied by everything from a vintage 1920's Gibson mandolin, a boombox or an iPhone, every last recording from the booth was inspired and fulfilling."
