Companies, etc.



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.

    Was excited to pick this up at a record fair today but little did I know what a nightmare this is to play and enjoy --- to many gimmicks for my liking and locked tracks that play at 45rpm and 78 rpm (who even owns a TT with 78rpm !!) -- the recording sounds super compressed in places .

      Great songs, as usually with Jack White, but my press is impossible to listen to. The needle comes back at the beginning after few seconds ... Fortunatly (?), I have the mp3 ... ;(

        Heard about the formats and the inside running out etc etc… Is it any good though?
        • Andrewwoodsdesign's avatar
          I'm only seeing "XI" on the side 2 runout and nothing else, no "kitchen sink" of any variety. Does anyone know if this is the correct pressing, or which is the correct version if mine only has that?

            I got the album several years ago, and I have kept it sealed. I wonder if there is any way to tell if the copy I have is a 1st pressing or a 2nd just from any exterior sign without opening it. Thanks in advance for any help.

              Total Garbage sound , cool record though, smply a novelty and nothing else.

                Does anyone’s copy of this lock groove in the middle of Lazaretto? I have 2 copies that stay stuck in the same place that’s not related to the locked groove.

                  This is pretty much a novelty record, and the sound quality suffers because of it. Hopefully, it gets a “proper” repress, sans gimmicks, where sonic quality is the raison d’être. I’ll be happy to purchase both, Jack, if you’re out there listening. Also, how many people have a 78 rpm-capable motor anymore, unless they collect shellac, lol?

                    This album needed its little tricks to sell as I find it utterly rubbish. Badly pressed with really weak forgettable songs. Shame.

                      This record is odd, hard to figure out, logistically, and, to be honest, not the strongest set Jack has ever delivered… by a long shot.
