Ars Technica: The resurrection of an obscure, niche vinyl format: The 3-inch record

Shortly before Record Store Day 2019, tech site Ars Technica published a relatively in-depth story about the history of 8-ban records, including Jack White’s involvement in bringing the 3” format to the West, Michael Kurtz’s journey to bring a new three inch player for Record Store Day, and a brief review of the hardware itself, including a short YouTube video showing off a test pressing of Wilson Pickett’s “Mustang Sally,” which appears to be an upcoming 3” release (it was not part of the 2004 “Oldies The Best” series).

The author also ran an unboxing video a week before this article’s publication.
