UPDATE: A comment blow clarifies info in this post.
Earlier this year, Neil Young and many others, went to Nashville to honor Willie Nelson's for his 80th birthday.
Jack White's Third Man Record Booth was setup for the occasion and Neil Young stopped by and recorded a song in the booth. Songs featuring Young include: "Sail Away", "Long May You Run" and "Whiskey River" with Ashley Monroe, Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, and Jamey Johnson.
Jack White's Third Man Record Booth
Now comes word of a release from those "booth sessions" from Willie Nelson Gets 'Live at Third Man Records' Album Featuring Neil Young, Jack White, Norah Jones • exclaim.ca by Alex Hudson:
Now, that visit is being documented with the latest package from Third Man's rarities-oriented subscription series the Vault. The package includes a live album, a poster, and a unique 6-inch record featuring Nelson and White.Live at Third Man Records:
The Live at Third Man Records album is credited to Willie Nelson & Friends. It features a host of high-profile guests including Neil Young, Norah Jones, Leon Russell, Sheryl Crow, Ashley Monroe and, of course, Jack White.
The three-sided release comes on so called "smokey grey" and "bio-diesel green" vinyl, with the blank D-side featuring an etched graphic of the famed palomino horse Trigger.
As for the 6-inch record — which is the label's first-ever record of that size — it was laid down in Third Man's recently unveiled vinyl recording booth. It's pressed on transparent yellow vinyl and housed in a die-cut sleeve, and features White and Nelson duetting together on "Red Headed Stranger." It was presumably easy to fit the song onto the small 6-inch record, since the booth only allows for recordings of 111 seconds or less. The B-side is an etching.
