CMJ.com posted a new article talking about various Third Man Records releases, including the upcoming releases of Wanda Jackson and the Black Belles:|
"Jack White named his Third Man label as a tribute to a one of his favorite noir films (a similarly titled Orson Welles thriller), but considering that White has three bands and a family yet still found the time to produce, record and release 21 vinyl singles since Third Man started at the beginning of 2009, it seems reasonable to suspect that the label title is also a hint at how many Jack Whites are needed to maintain such a workload. As White, himself, admits on a call to CMJ during a break from sessions for Dead Weather's second album, "I wish I could clone myself." But even without some technological twins, White seems to handling things just fine. In fact, he says his attempt to bring spontaneity back to the music industry is going even greater than he thought it would.
"Whenever we release something, we have people around the block. To buy vinyl! Itís a wonderful thing!" White says with infectious glee. "Whenever we hear about a band, if we heard they did a good show the night before, we'll get 'em in here to make a record." He says that Third Man is hoping to soon add a live venue, and all shows performed there will be recorded and eventually available for purchase, "so the whole thing will pay for itself."
