An amazing Cassette Week update:Third Man Record's Ben Blackwell pulls a box of cassettes from his basement and discovers...
Ben Blackwell states, The cassette, titled 'He Once Ate A Small Child' is, as far as I can tell, the rarest physical release of a Jack White performance. And prior to the mention here, the release was completely undocumented. I doubt more than a half-dozen people even knew about it.
And he's granted Discogs permission to share the track via our YouTube channel. Read Ben Blackwell's Why Cassettes Are The New 45s and listen to the rarest physical release of a Jack White performance of Blondie's One Way Or Another HERE.
