From there, the masters were rushed to United Record Pressing, which immediately began pressing the 45s. The sleeves were printed from pictures taken at the intimate show. The finished records were personally escorted by White to Third Man to sell to awaiting fans. The whole process took 3 hours, 55 minutes and 21 seconds, according to a tweet from Third Man Records, the label founded by White.The previous Guinness World Record holder for the fastest album release belonged to Swiss accordion trio Vollgas Kompanie, which released a live album on Aug. 16 one day after recording it, according to Rolling Stone.As if that weren't enough excitement, Whirlwind Heat appeared at Third Man to play its first live show since 2006 (and likely the group's last ever), as its classic "Do Rabbits Wonder?" LP is reissued on a variety of colored vinyl for Record Store Day.Third Man's will be tweeting a recap video of White's record-breaking achievement later today, according to a spokesperson for the artist.
