Brand New ~ Sealed! Pressed On 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, The ‘Lazaretto’ ULTRA LP From Jack White Has Many Amazing Features, Including Ability To Run At Three Speeds, Tracks Hidden Under The Label, & “Dual-Groove Technology”, Which Creates Alternate Versions Of The Album, Depending On Where You Drop The Needle!
‘Lazaretto’ inhabits an exciting place in White’s expansive discography as the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Blunderbuss’.
Over the past five years, Jack White & Third Man Records have brought to life many ideas that were new to the century-old vinyl format. Continuing that grand tradition, the Lazaretto ULTRA LP contains many incredible bold innovations:
Tracks A1 to A5 and BA1/BB1 to B6 are listed continuously from 1 to 11 and play at 33 ⅓ RPM.
Tracks A6 and B7 are locked grooves featuring elements from their respective previous tracks.
Tracks A7 and B8 are untitled, hidden tracks printed on each side’s labels, and play at 78 RPM and 45 RPM respectively, thus making the LP a three speed record.
Side A’s groove is inverted and plays from the inside out.
“Just One Drink” consists of two different intros, each in its own groove, with both connecting at the body of the song. BA1 is acoustic, BB1 is electric.
Side B has a matte finish, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record.
Vinyl is pressed in 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.
Tracks B3 and B4 are swapped in comparison to the digital editions, and B2 features a slightly longer intro.
The vinyl was mastered entirely from analog sources with no additional compression used.
