The Black Keys: Chulahoma 12" (new; pink vinyl)

Fat Possum Records


Limited Edition Pink Colored Vinyl Pressing to Benefit Gilda's Club NYC!

Recorded by the band in their own Akron, OH studio The Black Keys epitomize DIY on their 2006 stop gap EP Chulahoma, a collection of songs that were originally written by the late Junior Kimbrough. The Keys capture the very essence of Junior's raw style better than any other musician today. Roomy and sparse in production the drums/guitar duo fill out every inch of these songs with distorted guitar, drums, and Dan Auerbach's soulful vocals.

Ten bands re-issue their albums on limited edition pink vinyl, all for one cause. This is the third year for the initiative that helped raise $65,000 for Gilda's Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from the disease at the age of 43 in 1989.

This year's limited pink vinyl are from Anthrax, The Black Keys, Courtney Barnett, Ed Sheeran, Jim Breuer & The Loud & Rowdy, My Chemical Romance, NOFX, Opeth, Pixies and Red Hot Chili Peppers. The proceeds will sponsor Gilda's Club NYC.
