Jack White is a generous label head! He shares so much rare material via the label's subscription service!
Pitchfork reports that White's Third Man Records and its Vault subscription series will include The White Stripes' first-ever live performances, recorded live at the Detroit bar the Gold Dollar in 1997. Definitely a pick up if you are a fan.
The deets, per the 'Fork are as follows:
The Live at the Gold Dollar 7" single features a recording from an open mic night on July 14, 1997, which was the first ever White Stripes live performance. Wowza.
It comes pressed on red vinyl and includes "Jimmy the Exploder" and the traditional "St. James Infirmary Blues" from 1999's The White Stripes, as well as a cover of "Love Potion #9."
The 12" white vinyl LP, also titled Live at the Gold Dollar, was recorded at the band's first ever full concert, on Aug.14, 1997. It comes pressed on white vinyl, and includes early versions of the Stripes tracks "Lafayette Blues" and "Screwdriver." It also includes a black tote bag that features the White Stripes' iconic peppermint design. Those are so cute and trendy, aren't they?
