Because it’s never too early to get ’em started, Jack White‘s Third Man Records and Light in the Attic are teaming up to teach children about the joys of record collecting. Their jointly-released kids’ compilation, This Record Belongs To __________, is out November 6. It features songs by Nina Simone, Jerry Garcia, Harry Nilsson, Van Dyke Parks, Donovan, the Pointer Sisters, Vashti Bunyan, Shel Silverstein, Carole King, Kermit the Frog, and others. “You won’t find boy bands, princesses, or purple dinosaurs here,” a press release says. The album comes with a full-color storybook.
In conjunction with the compilation, Third Man are also releasing a special portable children’s turntable with built-in speakers and a USB port, featuring an image of “Manny”, Third Man’s mascot.
