Notes

The record was pressed in the U.S. and distributed worldwide. So some copies might have different hype stickers on shrink wrap (from the country of distribution).

"Ultra LP" release featuring several special features:
· Tracks A6 and B7 are locked grooves featuring elements from their respective previous tracks. "High Ball Stepper" doesn't end with a faded-out distortion as in the digital versions, it is locked instead.
· Tracks A7 and B8 are hidden tracks pressed on their sides' labels, and play at 78 RPM and 45 RPM respectively, thus making the LP a three speed record.
· Side A's groove is inverted and plays from the inside out.
· "Just One Drink" consists of two different intros, each in its own groove, with both connecting at the body of the song. BA1 is acoustic, BB1 is electric.
· Side B has a matte finish, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record.
· Vinyl is pressed in flat-edged format.
· Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record.
· Tracks B3 and B4 are swapped in comparison to the digital editions, and B2 features a slightly longer intro.
· The vinyl was mastered entirely from analog sources with no additional compression used.

Tracks A1 to A5 and BA1/BB1 to B6 are listed continuously from 1 to 11 and play at 33 ⅓ RPM.
Track A7 is an uncredited reworking of 'Pusherman', originally by Curtis Mayfield.
Durations unlisted, approximates obtained by digitizing the vinyl audio.

Jacket features Soft Touch aqueous coating. Record comes in die-cut black paper poly sleeve. Also included are an insert with lyrics and credits, and a digital download card for the album in MP3 format, which also shows info about the hologram.

Some copies have the same label on both sides of record.

Anyone who's able to place the needle on the first track of this LP without missing the first few seconds or touching the hologram grooves, on the first try, is a master of the turntable. Jack White was out of his mind to not add some dead grooves before "Three Women".

Just bought two copies each from a different retailer and they both had bad wrinkles in the pressing that produced very noticeable thumping sounds in at least four different places. Really disappointing.

Definitely doesn't sound great, even though they boasted a 100% analog process. But, I gotta admit, the long list of little gimmicks made it enjoyable for a few minutes. Can't blame the guy for trying to shake things up a bit, but it was probably just too much for the pressing house to do perfectly all in one LP.

How about fewer gimmicks and more attention to detail on the actual pressing? Off-center, scratchy, crackling, grooves running right into the label, etc. I purchased a 2nd copy to see if my 1st was just a bad copy, but the 2nd version has all the same issues - except I get to the last song on Side B before my stylus hits the label. Yippee!! Even with some software touch-ups via VinylStudio the needle drop doesn't sound pristine. Too bad, because the music is awesome.

What a terrible choice on the outward playback! Side B sounds like my ar$e too and I don't even see what that hologram is supposed to be! If you care one bit about good sound, pass on this release its terrible.

If it wasn't for the gimmicks I would rate this 4 or 5 stars. I like the music, and my copy sounds good, but the record is a royal pain in the ass to play.

No one seems concerned about the stylus damage this causes. Has anyone got a definitive answer to if the record grooves on side a still retain the inward spindle forces or of they are reversed since the playback also is? If both the inward force is reversed and your anti skate is normal you will put more stress on the right side groove and stylus tip.

This just seems like pretentious gimmicks to me. How is he genius when this doesnt seem to relate to the music? Was the idea just to be as unnecessarily creative as possible just to say you are the first to do these things?

I have this on black vinyl as the standard pressing of the "Ultra LP" but I can't find the runout etchings for the life of me with a loupe or magnifying glass. Either there's more than one version or? Help!

I have a copy of Lazaretto that I bought directly from Third Man Records in Nashville. When I got home to play it, I didn't realize that the way the album is pressed. Side A is completely off centered with the grooves. I don't know if my copy is supposed to look like that or not. When I played it a few times, I didn't hear the music sound off. I'm thinking my copy is a considered a Mispress.

I received my copy from a large european mail order retailer in the very year it was released. Back cover says, manufactured at United Pressing. My copy seems to have the mentioned B side runout groove hand etching TMR • 271 - B KITCHEN SINK XI, but it's very hard to decipher.
Sound quality seems to be OK, I noticed nothing wrong.
However, during B1, Just one drink (with the two intros), the acoustic intro plays just OK.
However, there is a small or short skip in the continuity of the sound and music when the electric intro goes into the common body of the song. Not much, but still noticable, like a skip of one record groove. So the rythm of the song stumbles at the transition of the electric intro into the body of the song.
However, once two years later or so, I had the chance to listen to a differrent copy of that record. On this pressing, the transition from the electric intro into the body of the song is very very noticable, there is almost one bar of discontinuity (one bar is repeated), when the electric intor joins into the body of the song.
Whereas on my copy of the record, the discontinuity is just about a sixteenth note, or so.

So, there must have been at least two masters (laquers) cut from which stampers have been made, at least of side B of the record.

Is there a copy around, where both intros, the acoustic and the electric intro join into the body of the song without a glitch in contiuity of the music?
