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.


Cassette Week Begins Today; Runs Through October 13, 2018 Leading Up To Cassette Store Day  CASSETTE WEEK 2018

PORTLAND, OR October 8, 2018 - Today, Discogs, the world's foremost Database, Marketplace, and Community for physical music, launches Cassette Week (October 8-13, 2018). Cassette Week celebrates the humble cassette format throughout the week, leading up to Cassette Store Day (Japan, UK, USA) taking place on Saturday, October 13, 2018, around the world. Cassette Week begins with The Cassette Resurgence: An Apple, An Van, And The Go by Sean Bohrman (Burger Records).

Other features throughout the week will feature Ben Blackwell (Third Man Records) laying out why cassettes are the new 45s, while uncovering a previously unknown, non-Googleable Jack White appearance around the time the White Stripes were forming; and underground radio legend Bobbito Garcia breaking down how cassettes spread hip-hop culture, and his radio show, all around the globe.



BOARDING HOUSE REACH is the new solo album from Jack White, and is a testament to the breadth of the artist's creative power and his bold artistic ambition. This new material finds Jack White expanding his musical palate with perhaps his most ambitious work thus far, a collection of songs that are simultaneously timeless and modern.

Written and conceived while holed up in a spartan apartment with literally no outside world distractions, White exclusively used the same kind of gear he had when he was 15 years old (a quarter-inch four-track tape recorder, a simple mixer, and the most basic of instrumentation). The album explores a remarkable range of sonic terrain -- crunching rock 'n' roll, electro and hard funk, proto punk, hip hop, gospel blues, and even country -- all remapped and born anew to fit White's matchless vision and sense of restless experimentation.

BOARDING HOUSE REACH was produced by Jack White III and recorded at Third Man Studio in Nashville, TN, Sear Sound in New York, NY, and Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, CA. The album was mixed by Bill Skibbe, Joshua V. Smith, and White at Third Man Studio in Nashville, TN. The album features White on vocals, acoustic and electric guitars and drums, organ, and synthesizers.

He's backed by a remarkable new lineup of musicians that includes: drummer Louis Cato (Beyoncé, Q-Tip, John Legend, Mariah Carey), bassists Charlotte Kemp Muhl (The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) and NeonPhoenix (Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z), synthesizer players DJ Harrison and Anthony "Brew" Brewster (Fishbone, The Untouchables), keyboardists Neal Evans (Soulive, Talib Kweli, John Scofield) and Quincy McCrary (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Pitbull), percussionists Bobby Allende (David Byrne, Marc Anthony) and Justin Porée (Ozomatli), and backing vocalists Esther Rose and Ann & Regina McCrary of Nashville's beloved gospel trio, The McCrary Sisters, as well as longtime collaborators like drummers Daru Jones (Nas, Talib Kweli) and Carla Azar (Autolux, Depeche Mode, Doyle Bramhall II). Singer-songwriter C.W. Stoneking also appears, contributing a stirring spoken word performance to the album's "Abulia and Akrasia."

Jack White is a 12-time GRAMMY® Award-winner and 35-time nominee. His most recent full-length release, 2016's JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS: 1998-2016 (Third Man Records/Columbia), collected 26 acoustic-based songs from throughout White's wide-ranging musical career, spanning album tracks, B-sides, remixes, alternate versions, and previously unreleased material from The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and White's groundbreaking solo career. The collection debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Vinyl Albums" chart upon its September 2016 release - a position also achieved by 2012's RIAA gold certified solo debut, BLUNDERBUSS, and 2014's chart-topping LAZARETTO, both of which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 as well.
