Initially broadcast in 2001, these sessions capture Jack and Meg with famed BBC DJ John Peel and are arguably the best document of the White Stripes at the time. These have been widely bootlegged since the original broadcase, but this is an official and authorized repress of the 2016 release in celebration of their 15 year anniversary. This double vinyl set includes both live White Stripes recordings – one from July 25th, 2001 and the second from November 8th, 2001.

The White Stripes Live in Detroit: 1999-2000-2001, In continued celebration of The White Stripes 20th anniversary, Third Man Records is proud to announce Vault Package #34 The White Stripes Live in Detroit: 1999-2000-2001.

Live at the Magic Bag: July 30th, 1999, 180-gram, colored vinyl,

July 30th, 1999 found The White Stripes headlining the Magic Bag in fashionable Ferndale, a northern suburb of Detroit. Chosen as a venue mainly to placate the fans who wouldn’t venture to see The White Stripes in rough-and-tumble Detroit, the show would be their first performance after the release of their self-titled debut album. The cushy environs of the Magic Bag provided Jack with an in-house piano, making this the first time that he and Meg would ever incorporate the instrument live. Highlights include their first-ever stab at Bob Dylan’s “Love Sick,” an endearingly unique solo piano rendition of “You’ve Got Her in Your Pocket,” and a simplistic, embryonic rendition of “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground,” all of which provide for a tense performance, filled with equal parts rage and tenderness of which only The White Stripes were capable.

Track List for Live at the Magic Bag 7-30-1999: Jimmy the Exploder/ Wasting My Time/ Astro/ Cannon / John the Revelator (traditional)/ The Big Three Killed My Baby/ I Just Don’t Know What to Do With Myself (Bacharach/David)/ Love Sick (Bob Dylan) (piano)/ Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground (piano)/ St. James Infirmary (traditional) (piano)/ Suzy Lee/ Stop Breaking Down (Robert Johnson)/ Lafayette Blues/ The Same Boy You’ve Always Known/ You’ve Got Her In Your Pocket (piano)/ Broken Bricks

Live at the Magic Stick: 8-18-2000, 180-gram, colored vinyl

August 18th, 2000 had The White Stripes performing at Detroit’s venerable Magic Stick. Supported by near-and-dear friends (who’d later become bandmates and collaborators), the Greenhornes and Whirlwind Heat, the recording provides a window into the Stripes’ mindset that Summer — just after their West Coast De Stijl headlining tour in June and still yet to experience the insanity of their opening slots for Sleater-Kinney in September. The only known live performance of Captain Beefheart’s “Ashtray Heart” (which they’d just recently laid to tape for eventual release in the Sub Pop Singles Club), a rare live outing for the deep cut “I’m Bound to Pack It Up,” and an electrifying set-ending “Let’s Shake Hands” leave the listener with the palpable sense that something amazing is about to happen for this band.

Track List: You’re Pretty Good Looking (for a Girl)/ When I Hear My Name/ Jolene (Dolly Parton)/ Cannon/John the Revelator (traditional)/ Apple Blossom/ Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground/ Death Letter (Son House)/ Little Bird/ Jimmy the Exploder/ I’m Bound to Pack It Up/ Broken Bricks/ Hello Operator/ Astro / Jack the Ripper (Screaming Lord Sutch)/ Ashtray Heart (Captain Beefheart)/ Do/ Let’s Shake Hands

Live at the Gold Dollar: 6-7-2001, 180-gram, black vinyl

June 7th, 2001 marked The White Stripes final performance at the Gold Dollar in Detroit. As the first of three hometown headlining shows to support the release of White Blood Cells, the feeling in the air that night was one of excitement and anticipation. In what was arguably the most packed show in Gold Dollar history, Jack and Meg delivered beyond expectations and played their new, soon-to-be critically acclaimed record from front to back. Despite an attempt at tackling Get Behind Me Satan in Chicago in 2005, this would be the ONLY time The White Stripes would perform any of their albums in their entirety. In full command of their powers, The White Stripes proved to be both ascendant and transcendent on this night. This show was the triumphant culmination of the previous five years of gigging in Detroit.

Track List: Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground/ Hotel Yorba/ I’m Finding It Harder to Be a Gentleman/ Fell in Love With a Girl/ Expecting/ Little Room/ The Union Forever/ The Same Boy You’ve Always Known/ We’re Going to Be Friends/ Offend in Every Way/ I Think I Smell a Rat/ Aluminum/ I Can’t Wait/ Now Mary/ I Can Learn/ This Protector

Includes Show Poster Reproduction Prints,

High quality reproduction prints of the Jack White-designed posters for each of these shows will be included. Originally limited to no more than two dozen copies printed (Kinko’s color copies were a buck a pop back then!), posted up at local Detroit record shops and watering holes and summarily torn down and thrown away, original copies of these highly-sought-after pieces have been known to command hundreds of dollars on the secondary market. The copies included here are gorgeous, instantly frame-worthy and much lighter on the pocketbook than the costly originals.

Live in Detroit Slipcase, Sturdy slipcase utilizing the rub-on style lettering employed by Jack on a majority of his early flyer designs.

Third Man is happy to announce the contents of our 30th Vault package, our final offering of 2016. This time around we wanted to showcase something special from every one of Jack White’s wide berth of musical projects, as well as some really cool extras from a pretty special event that fans were able to catch a glimpse of during Sunday’s Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown Nashville episode, but weren’t able to hear in full. We got so excited putting this package together we decided to break with tradition and offer 2 full LPs for the first time.

Live at Disgraceland: From Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown LP
Anthony Bourdain and his team descended on Nashville hungry for culture and knowledge (as well as hot chicken, tasting plates, and tequila); they visited every nook and cranny of this town, hung with the locals, ate like czars, partied like rock stars, and woke up every morning fresh as daisies and ready to do it again. Parts Unknown does not come to your city in order to present a slide show of tourist spots and magazine cover spreads. Bourdain wants to understand what makes a city tick. He has a knack for getting down to the marrow of how a town’s denizens think and live, why they do what they do in their community, and how that relates to the country at large in this time and place, Earth 2016. This is a man after our own heart and we were so happy to welcome him into our world for a few, too-short days. Their time here culminated with a rager of party at Disgraceland (location… unknown) where The Dead Weather, The Kills, and William Tyler all played jaw dropping electric live sets, living room style, to a house full of well-fed, newly tattooed, appreciative friends. Wish you could have been there? Wish granted: we present the night’s musical entertainment in full for your listening pleasure…

The Dead Weather
1. Hang You From The Heavens
2. Gasoline
3. I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)

The Kills
1. Heart of a Dog
2. Impossible Tracks
3. Whirling Eye

William Tyler
1.We Can’t Go Home Again
2. I’m Gonna Liver Forever (If it Kills Me)
3. Area Code 601

Listen to a clip of “Gasoline” from the Dead Weather’s set below…

The Raconteurs – Live at Irving Plaza NYC April 7th 2006 LP
It’s been just over ten years since the first Raconteurs show on American soil. This release celebrates that momentous occasion with another hard slab of wax from the infamous Third Man Records tape vaults. Featuring cover art inspired by the original concert poster by long time visual collaborator Rob Jones, and featuring a set of songs that would prove to be classics, this album is a solid testament to the early fury and energy of those nascent and exciting times when The Raconteurs were first introduced to the world on the live stage.

Full set list:

Intimate Secretary
Hands
Steady, As She Goes
Together
House
Store Bought Bones

Jack White / The White Stripes Double A-Side split 7″ “Love is the Truth (acoustic mix)” b/w “City Lights”
Two previously unheard, beautiful, and haunting Jack White compositions recently released on the Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 compilation paired together for this Vault only blue and red splatter 7″ vinyl in a heavy paper stock sleeve. This will be the only physical version of this 7″ available… ever.

Anyone who saw The White Stripes in concert witnessed Jack White introduce his “big sister Meg” on the drums. That was the story the rock duo concocted in the early days of the Stripes: that Jack and Meg were the youngest of 10 siblings, and they formed a band when Meg tried drumming on Bastille Day of 1997.

In actuality, John “Jack” Gillis met Megan White in the early ’90s, when he was in high school and she was a waitress. The Detroit area residents started hanging out at local concerts and record stores, then began dating. On September 21, 1996, when Jack and Meg were both 21, the pair tied the knot. Instead of Meg taking her new husband’s family name, Jack changed his last name to White.

Around that time, Jack was playing drums and guitar in various bands. But soon after getting married, the couple formed their own act, concocting the brother-sister story. In the early days of the White Stripes, most people (and the press) took the Whites’ lie as truth. However, after the duo began to attract mainstream attention in 2001, the couple’s ruse was exposed. A Detroit newspaper even published their marriage certificate as proof.

By then, Jack and Meg were no longer married (they divorced in 2000). But they remained bandmates and continued their brother and sister ruse as the White Stripes became global rock stars with the release of White Blood Cells in 2001 and then Elephant in 2003.

Although the pair kept spinning their yarn on stage through the end of the Stripes’ touring days in 2007, Jack gave a little peek behind the curtain in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2005. He suggested that the lie helped people take the duo seriously.

“When you see a band that is two pieces, husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, you think, ‘Oh, I see…’,” Jack said. “When they’re brother and sister, you go, ‘Oh, that’s interesting.’ You care more about the music, not the relationship – whether they’re trying to save their relationship by being in a band. You don’t think about that with a brother and sister. They’re mated for life. That’s what family is like.”

Jack and Meg dissolved their band about a decade after they ended their marriage. Jack married model/singer Karen Elston in 2005 (the couple divorced in 2013), while Meg married Patti and Fred “Sonic” Smith’s son Jackson Smith in 2009 (the couple divorced in 2014).

Excerpts from Third Man Records package No26,

As the focal point of Vault package #26, a complete recording from that evening, newly mixed from original multi-track sources, will be pressed on blood red vinyl and made available to subscribers worldwide. The White Stripes Live at the Gold Dollar Vol. III is the third release (Vault 13 comprised both volumes I and II) in an on-going series that will eventually see the release of all extant audio from the band at the Gold Dollar. There are still many unheard treasures to be revealed.

This is the first White Stripes show released from the pivotal year 1999…the year which saw the band unleash their first album, do their first extended run of touring with three shows opening for Pavement in the Southeast and found Jack White buying his soon-to-be trademark Airline guitar…all building blocks to what would eventually turn the band into the international juggernaut they became.

The White Stripes Live at the Gold Dollar Vol. III

Track list:

Broken Bricks
Jimmy the Exploder
The Big Three Killed My Baby
Stop Breaking Down (first live performance) (Robert Johnson)
Suzy Lee (first live performance)
Let’s Build a Home
Sugar Never Tasted So Good
Do
Little People
One More Cup of Coffee (Bob Dylan)
Astro (first live performance)
Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
Wasting My Time
Red Bowling Ball Ruth
Cannon/John the Revelator/Grinnin’ in Your Face (Son House)
Let’s Shake Hands

In conjunction with the live album, a reproduction of one of the Jack White-designed flyers for that evening… three black-and-white peppermints, each varying in circumference and oriented on top of each other…will be included in the package as an 10.75” x 14″ iron-on transfer. All Vault members will be welcome to submit photos of their use of the transfer and the member who’s submission is considered the “best” by the TMR team will win a rare, limited test pressing of the aforementioned LP.

Additionally, the other flyer from that evening (also a peppermint, this time on a field of red sparkly naugahyde) AND the setlist as written in Jack’s hand will be included as high-quality color reproductions. Fully utilizing everything in the TMR archives to round out the package finds us also printing the news clipping of the show preview and the hand-written price list from the merch table for that night. Third Man is nothing if not thorough.

Completing the Gold Dollar presentation will be two full-color, 8 x 10, glossy prints of photographs taken by the estimable Doug Coombe, featuring Jack and Meg live on stage at the tiny Cass Corridor club in 1999. These are visually arresting to say the least.

The 7” for Vault 26 is a continuation of the Dead Weather single series, pairing the moving torch song “Impossible Winner” and “Mile Markers.” When complete, every song from the Dead Weather’s critically-lauded album Dodge and Burn will appear exclusively in 7” form as a single on captivatingly colored vinyl. Are these two songs a hint as to the next possibly music video to come from this merry band of grifters…it seems only time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy Alison belt this one out complete with string section accompaniment and revel in the inherent beauty in this transcendent album-closer.

Harkening back to where this all started, the bonus item for this vault package will be an impressive 1.25” enamel pin of the new Third Man Records Cass Corridor logo. Soon to be seen on the lapels and collars of bon vivants the world over, this dazzling pin will no doubt impress even the most die-hard skeptics.
