Third Man Records to Release Jack White Live Album
Third Man Records having a banner year in 2012--the label's three year anniversary, Jack White's Blunderbuss being released and quickly becoming the first #1 album of his career, the runaway success of the Blunderbuss tour featuring Jack's two bands The Peacocks and The Buzzards, the label's physical (and metaphysical) expansion... The milestones just keep coming. And Vault package #14 is no exception:
Jack White LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS DOUBLE LP
The LP for this quarter will be a double album recording of Jack's live show, and solo debut, at Third Man Records from our 3 Year Anniversary Party on March 8th of this year. LP one takes in the set with the band of all lovely ladies, The Peacocks, backing him up and LP two is the second set featuring The Buzzards. This is a fantastic and historical live document of Jack White and two fiery backing bands riding off the celebratory high spirits of the evening. The set featured classics from throughout Jack's career alongside plenty of songs from Blunderbuss, which were heard for the first time that night for many. The LPs come housed in amazing packaging which will be a first for TMR... a Lenticular gatefold cover! For those of you who may not be well versed in multiple dimensions, the Lenticular cover will show two separate images, in one. What you see depends on how the record is held or from which angle it's viewed. The LPs, of course, will be pressed on split color Black & Blue vinyl.
Jack White FREEDOM AT 21 B/W LOVE INTERRUPTION & HYPOCRITICAL KISS DEMO 7"
The 7" for this package is very special indeed: Three Jack White bursts of inspiration captured in the moment only to be fleshed out in the studio later with a full backing band. These recordings were done on Jack's trusty field recorder, and give an intimate glimpse into his recording and songwriting process. The 7" of demos of Freedom At 21 B/W Love Interruption and Hypocritical Kiss will be pressed on signature Jack White Blunderblue vinyl.
BABY RUTHLESS SHARK INFESTed SodA FOUNTAIN
The third item in this package is yet another first: The debut of the Third Man Books imprint. After the most recent Dead Weather tour in 2010, Alison Mosshart self published a book titled Shark InfesTed Soda Fountain of her photos compiled from their adventures on the road as a gift to the other members of the band. Beyond every page being packed with beautiful ethereal photographs, when viewed as a complete work the book is a touching and one of a kind document to the unique love and camaraderie of the Dead Weather and the cast of characters that surrounded them in their international travels. Alison has been kind enough to allow the book to be re-printed in its entirety and shares with the members of The Vault.
