The album Van Lear Rose by Loretta Lynn is near and dear to us at Third Man Records. Not only did the album garner some of the best reviews of her fifty-plus years in the music business, but also her first-ever solo Grammy for Best Country Album in 2005. With Lynn having writing credit on all thirteen of the album’s songs, it stands as a high-water mark in her ability to crossover beyond “country” audiences and appeal to music fans of all ages and persuasions. Produced by Jack White, Third Man Records is proud to give this landmark album the deluxe treatment it so deserves as package 24 in its Vault subscription service.
The LP produced exclusively for part of the Vault is mastered directly from the original analog tapes and includes a previously unreleased song from the sessions titled “Just to Have You Back.”
The accompanying 7” single is the White Stripes covering two of Lynn’s classic songs. Recorded in Detroit in 2000, the A side is Jack and Meg White’s interpretation of “Rated X”. On the b-side is a live rendition of Lynn’s “Whispering Sea” recorded live at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, WA on August 6, 2005
To top it all off and of supreme excitement is a new, exclusive DVD filmed in 2015 of both Lynn and White revisiting the time of “Van Lear Rose” to tell stories of its creation, its release and all the other subsequent hubbub and adoration.
