Do you still have your old vinyl? Now's the time to add some new vinyl to it.

A record company, Third Man Records, has pressed what it calls an Ultra LP, loaded with special features.

For Jack White's new album "Lazaretto," Third Man has done a lot of weird stuff.

  • Side A plays from inside out, instead of outside in.
  •  Two hidden tracks are literally that - hidden beneath the center paper labels
  • 1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, and one plays at 45 RPM
  • One song, "Just One Drink," begins with either an electric or acoustic intro, depending on where you place the needle. Both intros then feed into the main track.

Here's more on this crazy album.

Looking for a way to preserve all your old vinyl LPs to digital? Here's a great converter that will do all the work for you.
