'Live at Third Man Records' Album Featuring Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Jack White, Norah Jones, others

Vault Package #17
Live at Third Man Records

(Click photo to enlarge)

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.

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 • 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.

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.
Live at Third Man Records:

1. Roll Me Up
2. Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground (ft. Ashley Monroe)
3. Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain (ft. Ashley Monroe)
4. Funny How Time Slips Away (ft. Norah Jones)
5. I Gotta Get Drunk (ft. Norah Jones)
6. Sail Away (ft. Neil Young)
7. Long May You Run (ft. Neil Young)
8. Far Away Places (ft. Sheryl Crow)
9. Whiskey River (ft. Neil Young, Ashley Monroe, Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Jamey Johnson)
10. A Song for You (ft. Leon Russell)
11. Heartbreak Hotel (ft. Leon Russell)
12. Red Headed Stranger" (ft. Jack White) (broadcast version)

Can't you just hear that nice, warm analog sound radiating off that vinyl?

I think they may be talking about Trigger the guitar...

Just to be clear, the album itself isn't from the booth (which was set up for Record Store Day, not Willie's birthday) - it's from the birthday show the previous Thursday, part of which was broadcast on CMT's "Crossroads" (but not "Sail Away"). Only the bonus 6-inch with Willie and Jack is from the "booth sessions."

Will we ever know what Neil played in the booth?...

My theory why we all love crackles and pops so much is because it kinda sounds like chimney fire (of camp fire, if you will) and makes for a cozy atmosphere, hence the "warmness" so often talked about, and I´m fine with that! :-)

Thanks for clarification. Post updated.

As Syscrusher inquires, so what did get recorded in the booth?

Still waiting for something of substance on this website concerning an actual release of NY music (IE the Archives II),or new music.But all I see is useless trivial crap.

At 7/09/2013 11:16:00 AM, Blogger Thrasher Wheat said...

Anon - hmmm. " useless trivial crap". Let's see. New release w/ 3 Neil tracks. One track semi-obscure "Sail Away". Neil's never played "Whiskey River" and with new collaborators.

If you know something on Archives II or other new releases, please share.

Cellar Door Archives may be coming this fall but nothing official yet. we try not to pass rumor as news.

Neil might went back in time. The boot really suits you Neil. Neil should add the boot to his solo tour.

Wow! So Cool! Just ordered the subscription to get the vinyl! Thanks, Thrasher!

Is This Only avaiLable On Vinyl? Would Purchase It On Cd If Available.

Soldier Steve, I think you are out of luck.

The album itself isn't available by itself. You buy a subscription to Third Man Records which gets you a quarterly release... this quarter it's the Willie Nelson party.

All Vinyl though... Third Man Records specializes in "unique" vinyl offerings.

Thanks Michael For The Info. Maybe One Of You Who Get This Vinyl Can BurN It To Cdr For Us Rusties To Hear It? Trade For It Or B/P.
