The Third Man Records Lathe room in all its groove-carving beauty, featuring Seasick Steve.

We are so pleased that the day has come that we can announce the June 25th release of three very special live records — The Shins, The Kills, and Seasick Steve — all recorded in the Third Man Blue Room last October, and our first three releases recorded live using our one-of-a-kind direct-to-acetate recording process. Without overdubs or editing, these three records were mixed in real time on a Rupert Neve 5008 console by Grammy Award winning engineer Vance Powell, and instantly cut to vinyl by master cutter George Ingram using a 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati's legendary King Records (the story goes that James Brown's It's A Man's World was cut on this lathe among many more great sides...) Third Man is the only live venue in the world where artists can record their performance direct-to-acetate, and after these first three releases, we have many more of their kind coming down the pipeline.

We believe that this new/old method of recording is as honest as it gets, bringing listeners as close to the experience of the performance as possible (of course, that is until our team of talented engineers and tinkerers manage to gather all the necessary parts to get our time machine and teletransporter back up and running.)
