Jack White Covers ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ [Listen]
Suspend the gender disbelief for a second and indulge in Jack White‘s grainy, sounds-like-vinyl cover of ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter.’ He can’t be a daughter, of course, but he sure brings plenty of grit to this Loretta Lynn classic.
White recorded the track in the Third Man Recording Booth during Record Store Day, of which he was the ambassador.
The booth is a refurbished Voice-o-Graph from 1947, and visitors at the Nashville location of his Third Man Records were given the chance to cut two minutes of audio in any way they wished, with the end result being a 6-inch phonograph disc.
This version sounds like it was recorded on wax in 1947, actually, thanks to the scratch, crackle and pop of the audio.
