NEW GREEN SERIES RECORDS
February 09 2011
Third Man Records is ecstatic to announce its latest additions to its spoken word/instructional Green Series.
From the depths of Fletcher, North Carolina are the exciting auctioneering sounds of Jerry King Whether it’s farm equipment, real estate, vintage autos or homemade baked goods, Jerry has skills it takes not only to sell these disparate items, but does so with such a smooth delivery that his voice truly does resonate. Jerry truly is one of the world’s greatest auctioneers.
Jerry’s Green Series single starts off with a fascinating 8-minute interview conducted by Jack White that probes deep into the history, cadence, rhythm and speed of Jerry’s auctioneering. The flipside is a very rare moment in the world of vinyl, and a special first for third man; side b of this record contains 2 separate grooves! Here we find auctioneer Jerry King walking us through two hypothetical auctions…depending on where the listener drops the needle they will be greeted by either an automobile auction or a tobacco/chocolate cake auction. We already know what somebody out there is saying, “I already have that record in my collection”, but you sir, would be a liar.
Also joining the esteemed company of past Green Series participants BP Fallon and Conan O’Brien is Amy Walker. Amy is an actress who has made quite a name for herself as an expert in the field of replicating accents from all over the globe, as evidenced by the over 5 millions views of her “21 Accents” video on YouTube not to mention appearances on the Today Show and Inside Edition.
On the a-side Amy runs through her wide selection of different accents as a improvisational rolling internal dialogue. The a side also contains a reading from a random article in the local newspaper, each sentence in a different accent from around the world performed live. On the b-side, she’s interviewed by White discussing everything from the overuse of the word “like” by modern teenagers, offending people by speaking in their accents and a wide-range of other topical subjects in an exploration of accents and dialects and how they relate to peoples preconceptions, and influence prejudices.
In the spirit of the Amy Walker single, Third Man is printing an unprecedented 30 different sleeves, each one depicting Amy as a different persona or character. Both the Jerry King and Amy Walker Green Series 45s will be available via Third Man Records, in independent record stores, and Itunes worldwide on February 22nd. Stay tuned for exciting news of where you can purchase one of the limited edition Tri Color 45s for these singles.
