The wheel on the record goes round and round…

Jack White has a new project designed to get your kids interested in vinyl early on. A joint effort between White’s label, Third Man Records, and Light in the Attic records will release a new kids’ compilation album, complete with a portable children’s turntable featuring built-in speakers that a lot of us grew up with.

Entitled This Record Belongs To ________, the album features kid-friendly tracks from Nina Simone, Jerry Garcia, Harry Nilsson, Van Dyke Parks, Donovan, Carole King, Kermit the Frog and others.

The bundle, which will be available on November 6 via the Third Man store online and at Third Man Records’ brick-and-mortar store in Nashville, TN, costs $95.
