Melvins Live At Third Man Records 5-30-2013 on LP
Recorded direct-to-acetate by the double-drummer quartet on May 30th, 2013 in Third Man Records' Blue Room, the Melvins' show shook pictures off the walls and had the crowd begging for two things: a pair of earplugs and for the night to never end. Spin at maximum volume to experience for yourself...
The Third Man Live records are a continuous series of full-length albums recorded in the label's Blue Room which is, arguably, the only current venue in the world where a band can record a live set direct-to-tape in front of a paying audience. These shows are recorded onto one-inch 8-track tape (usually by Grammy Award-winning engineer Vance Powell) in front of lucky-to-get-a-ticket crowds.
The 8-track master is mixed to 2-track tape at Third Man Studio and that tape is then used to cut the vinyl master, thus ensuring the recording remains in the analog domain the entire time and is never transferred to a digital signal. At this time the Third Man Live series is only available on vinyl and not any other format.
