Default A 3 RPM record?

Jack White owns a record label. Said record label just celebrated its third anniversary. To mark the occasion, those who attended the celebration left with a record... but not just any record. No, this one includes 24 or so songs, and is designed to spin at just 3 RPM.

As no record player is designed to spin so slowly, any listening you get from this record will require manual spinning. Talk about a tedious listen!

Love that record color! I'd buy that record just to see what my father makes of it.

The Ultimate LP huh? Beat that MP3, your compression sucks in comparison! Oh wait... can fit over 320 albums on a 32GB 1 inch SD card... or if Seagate goes HAMR time, 10,000 albums on a 1 inch 1TB platter... That's several billion dollars of stolen music right there. Really, watch the video, it's awesome.
