Acoustic in the U.S. 2015 (Double 12" Baby Blue Vinyl, DVD + Photobook)

About 1 year ago, Jack White embarked on an unusual, acoustic tour. Hitting the only five states in the US in which he had yet to perform — the wild environs of North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho, and Alaska — White and his acoustic ensemble of Dominic Davis, Fats Kaplin and Lillie Mae Rische delivered jaw-dropping performances to the previously JW deprived terrritories. Each show was announced only hours before curtains lifted and tickets were only available in the venue box office, 1 per person, for $3. "No tradesies." Rampant online speculation, guesstimation and divining ensued, and those who were lucky and/or cunning enough to secure a seat were admired by all. The shows had several standards and rules set ahead of time by White: no amplifiers, only ribbon microphones used, and no monitors on stage.

Vault Package #28 is a celebration of these unprecedented performances and the end of the era that they signified. Beyond the double LP component, Acoustic in Idaho, the package also includes a DVD of Jack's performance from the Wendy Williamson Auditorium in Anchorage, Alaska. With the ethereal setting adding to the mystique of the circumstance, the show was one of the most thrilling in White's twenty-plus-year career, and those who were there to enjoy it (who had waited all day in the snow), bore witness to a once-in-a-lifetime performance. We present that memorable show here, in its entirety, on DVD, with expertly engineered sound and editing by TMR's in-house film guru Brad Holland. Acoustic in Alaska is truly spectacular.

The package also features Pictures From Unknown States, an intimate collection of shots from photographer, close Third Man ally David James Swanson. This pictorial travelogue of the tour and the places and people it encountered on its route is a packed-to-the-brim 52 pages of sheer wonder. Also borrowed from Swanson's stunning photo archives and are two elegant Risograph prints, both suitable for framing and evocative of the gilded settings of each one of these performances.

Bonnaroo 2014 (Triple 12" White, Blue & Black Vinyl + DVD)

On June 14th of 2014, Jack White unleashed what was arguably one of the best performances in the 13 year history of the Bonnaroo festival.

In an expansive field in Manchester, TN, filled with approximately 70,000 fans, White let loose a tour-de-force, 26-song, two-hour and forty-five minute career-spanning set. From White Stripes songs like "Hotel Yorba" and "Icky Thump" to Raconteurs numbers such as "Top Yourself" and "Steady, As She Goes" through "Blue Blood Blues" by the Dead Weather…not to mention a wide selection of his solo material and covers of two surf rock classics "Pipeline" by the Chantays and "Misirlou" by Dick Dale. And Led Zeppelin's "The Lemon Song"? He did that too.

In order to celebrate a show of such historical heft, Third Man Records has decided to dedicate the entirety of its 22nd Vault package to this performance.

More notes:
Three vinyl LPs (white, blue and black), housed in a soft-touch, telescoping box, topped off with a lenticular television on the cover…this is by far the most ambitious Vault package yet. The audio has been mixed by Third Man's in house engineer, three time Grammy Award-winner Vance Powell and stands as a marked improvement over the on-the-fly board mix heard in webcasts, YouTube uploads and shady downloads.

In addition, there will be a DVD of the FULL performance, re-edited from the original raw footage by Brad Holland (filmmaker extraordinaire), for a truly memorable visual document of the evening. We could've stopped there…but anything worth doing is worth overdoing, right? Also included in the package will be four high-quality 8x10 photographs from the evening shot by David Swanson. Suitable for framing, timeless, these will increase the value of your home tenfold.

(said to the guys in production) "Is that all? NO?!?!? Are you kidding me? What else could we offer?" Apparently we've lost our minds and gone as for to include a customized Jack White patch, a replica backstage pass sticker AND a poster in this beast of a package.  You want a custom-designed USB with super-secret extra added bonus materials too? Have at it.

If this package doesn't make you happy…nothing will.

Live at Third Man Records 2012 (Double 12" Blue & Black Vinyl)

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 took in classics from throughout Jack's career and showcased 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 us... 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 you hold the record or which angle you look at it. We'll spare you the Lacanian interpretation of the multiple imaged Jack and how these images represent the Id and Ego and the recorded product of course, the Super-Ego. Or using the Mirror Stage we can then look at The Real, The Symbolic and the... oh never mind. It looks incredible and you're going to absolutely want to display this cover prominently in your record room or mantle. The LPs, of course, will be pressed on split color Black & Blue vinyl.

Vault Package #14 Wild Card
BABY RUTHLESS SHARK INFESTED SODA FOUNTAIN -- And onto the third item in this package, which is another first. After the last Dead Weather tour in 2010 (that is to say, the last they've done, not the last EVER tour...) 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 us to reprint this book in it's entirety and share it with the members of The Vault and we are of course in turn, very excited for you to see it.

Live at Third Man

Garden Bowl, Detroit, MI; July 9th, 1999
• Catalog No: TMR199 (Vault Pkg #15)
• Total Playing Time: ??

Jack White & the Bricks (12" Bowling-Pin White Vinyl)

The LP for this round of the Vault is the first-ever live show by a short-lived band called Jack White and the Bricks. Featuring Jack White on vocals and guitar, Brendan Benson (the Raconteurs) on guitar, Kevin Peyok (the Waxwings, the See-See) on bass and Ben Blackwell (the Dirtbombs) on drums, the band gigged for only a few short months in 1999.

Focusing mainly on covers and White-penned tracks that had yet to have been appropriated by his main concern the White Stripes, this live show took place on White's 24th birthday, July 9th, 1999. Sharing a bill with the Greenhornes, the stage itself was situated on lanes 11-14 (yes, the actual bowling lanes!) of the legendary Garden Bowl in Detroit. While being the longest continually-run bowling establishment in North America, the Garden Bowl, along with the Gold Dollar, was also the de facto home of the then-bustling Detroit garage rock scene. The final song of the night, a blistering cover of Michigan's 60's garage legends ? and the Mysterians "Ain't It a Shame" is to "a girl who has to go get surgery soon"...a heartfelt dedication Jack sent out to band mate Meg White prior to a tonsillectomy operation. The show was recorded to four-track reel-to-reel in lane ten by an engineer who, although forgotten to time, left his imprint on the recording with a few track cut-outs and slight audio imperfections. These mild flaws notwithstanding, the vocal performance is extremely fierce and the show captures all four musicians at the height of the Detroit garage rock scene playing with unbridled energy.

Brendan Benson & Jack White Demos (7" Yellow Vinyl)

Drawing from that same time period and the same collaboration-happy times this Vault package features the pre-Raconteurs demo of "Steady, As She Goes" by Jack White and Brendan Benson. Recorded at Benson's East Grand Studios in his Detroit home in May of 2004, all the signifying parts of the classic song are existent and there, but it would take the incomparable touch of Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler to get the song to its classic state that fans know and love from the Raconteurs. On the flip side is a full-band orchestration of Jack and Brendan nailing "The Same Boy You've Always Known" in 1999 a full two years before it would appear on the White Stripes "White Blood Cells" album, and in a much different state. This single serves as a wonderful document of the germinations of what would become the fruitful songwriting partnership between White and Benson in the Raconteurs. (Vault CD 206)

Live in Mississippi (Double LP)

You want the White Stripes. We get it. So for our upcoming Vault package we’re excited to present our fans with peeks at the White Stripes from three decidedly different eras of the band. First off, we’re pleased to offer Live in Mississippi a recording of the White Stripes’ final live concert from July 31st, 2007 in Southaven, Mississippi. Presented in crystalline audio quality and spread across 2 LP’s pressed on 180-gram vinyl, this recording is (arguably) the band at the top of their game. With the local geography looming large on their minds, the set list is decidedly heavy on the blues and features covers of songs by Robert Johnson, Son House and Leadbelly. The rest of the set includes songs from all six of the White Stripes’ studio albums and the show is offered in its entirety.

Disc One
01. Stop Breaking Down
02. Let's Build a Home
03. When I Hear My Name
04. Icky Thump
05. Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground/As Ugly As I Seem

Nine Miles from the White City (12" Red & White Vinyl)

Courage. What makes a King out of a slave? Courage. What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage. What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage. What makes the Sphinx the 7th Wonder? Courage. What makes the dawn come up like THUNDER?! Courage. Whatmakes the Hottentot so hot? Who puts the "ape" in ape-ricot? Whatta they got that we aint got?

In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of the White Stripes album Elephant, Third Man has gone searching underneath couch cushions and in shady back alleys for the perfect Vault package to accompany the label's reissue of the album. We think we've nailed it.

Of utmost excitement is a 2 x LP blistering live set by the White Stripes recorded July 2nd, 2003 at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. Titled Nine Miles From the White City, this 26-song, 79-minute, tour-de-force performance is indicative of the absolute explosiveness Jack and Meg embodied at the height of their 2003 touring. Highlights include a rare live performance of Captain Beefheart's "Party of Special Things to Do", an especially frenetic "The Hardest Button to Button" as well as the Stripes Christmas tune "Candy Cane Children." Hearing "Seven Nation Army" in the middle of a set (and not as a closer or encore where it would soon find itself for the remainder of the band’s career) is a quaint reminder of the inauspicious beginnings of the future stadium anthem. The crystalline soundboard recording is best experienced through the impromptu, off-the-cuff performance of a song written on-the-spot that would be come to called "Little Cream Soda." The song would be re-discovered (via an audience recording) by Jack and Meg during the recording of their album Icky Thump, dusted off and recorded for what would become the White Stripes final studio album.

Live at the Gold Dollar 1997 (12" White Vinyl)

The LP for this quarter is the White Stripes first-ever live show. Recorded at the Gold Dollar in Detroit on August 14th, 1997 while opening for Rocket 455 and ‘68 Comeback, this soundboard recording is overly striking in how present and fully-formed the presentation and execution of the White Stripes was so early on. Featuring a blistering cover of the Stooges’ “TV Eye” as well as radically different versions of originals like “Screwdriver” and “Lafayette Blues,” the set is a treat for ALL Stripes fans across the world.

For our bonus item, we’ve revisited the classic White Stripes peppermint logo painted by Jack White around the time of these Gold Dollar shows. The same peppermint would be used as the basis for the first White Stripes t-shirts, as the b-side image of their “Hello Operator” picture disc, on the poster for their s/t record release show and plenty of other places. Noting how wildly popular tote bags have been with our fans, we’ve decided to finally put this iconic image on a tote bag. Perfect for bagging your own groceries, going record shopping or displaying in your White Stripes shrine, this tote is not only printed on both sides of the exterior but also features imagery on the inside.

Signed DC b/w I've Been Loving You Too Long

Our 7” this quarter features some of the earliest recordings the White Stripes ever made. The a-side is a haunting, stark version of “Signed DC” originally done by the band Love on their self-titled debut record from 1966. The flipside is a breathtaking rendition of the Otis Redding classic “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.” Recorded in Detroit in September of 1997 a mere two months after the Stripes’ live debut, this single provides a heretofore unheard era of the band. Although their debut single “Let’s Shake Hands” wouldn’t be released for another eight months, this recording shows how fully-formed the general idea, aesthetic and approach of the White Stripes was from the very start.

Providing rare insight into the demo process, the 7" in this Vault package features Jack White's solo demos of the songs "I Want to Be the Boy to Warm Your Mother's Heart" and "Little Acorns." Accompanied only by his trusty piano (salvaged from a Catholic school in Detroit as it was being shuttered), Jack's double-tracked vocals lend an otherworldly air to "...Heart." "Little Acorns," in the most happy of accidents, pairs a parable spoken by legendary Detroit-area news anchor Mort Crim with White's germination of a song idea, all through the magic of recycled 1/4" analog tape. Of special note are White's previously unheard guide vocals...edited out of the final mix once it would appear on Elephant. (On Vault CD 206)

Released for Record Store Day; April 21, 2012 - Continuing in the mission of reissuing the nuggets of the White Stripes' back catalog, Third Man plays Dr. Frankenstein/matchmaker to two stand-alone songs from the high time of the year 2000. “Hand Springs” was originally released as a split-single with the Dirtbombs and included free in issue #19 of Multiball magazine. “Red Death at 6:14” was initially released on the Jack White-produced compilation “Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit” in 2001 and was later made available as a one-sided single from the folks at MOJO magazine. Both songs are quintessential White Stripes jams and finally pairing them together here makes (arguably) one of the best Stripes singles ever. (On Vault CD tbd)

This is some of the earliest known footage of the White Stripes outside North America (it was their first international tour) and finds them confident and captivating before a unexpecting crowd.
Come October 2003 and the White Stripes were slightly more known but still in-front of a crowd they had to work considerably to win over.  The audience was the student population of Freeman's Bay Primary School. Jack and Meg provided a nice primer on American blues history and the kids seemed to enjoy themselves in this sweet, innocent performance that has been kept mostly under-wraps in the nine years since it took place.

Open Up b/w Rough Detective (7" Yellow Jacket Vinyl)

The 7" this go-round is incredibly special. Two BRAND NEW studio recordings from the Dead Weather. "Open Up (That's Enough)" and "Rough Detective" are unlike anything else the band has ever done and are both ample reminders of the ferocity of this motley collection of low-lifes, grifters and ne'er-do-wells. These songs are not throw-aways. These songs are not demos. These songs are not outtakes. This 7" will ONLY be available via Vault subscription. No other 7" of these songs will be made. The whole thing is pressed on striking yellow jacket vinyl and coupled with a custom glue-pocket picture sleeve, a slight shift from the Vault's usual die-cut company sleeves. 

Is there more to come from this? Yes there is. The Dead Weather's plan is to record and release two-song sets until 2015 at which time they will release a full album that contains these singles plus many more album-only tracks. It's a unique long-term plan for new music from this incendiary group. The songs WILL be released digitally, but not until Vault packages have been dispatched to subscribers. The goal is that physical copies are out there first. (On Vault CD tbd)

Third Man Live 2011

The Raconteurs live at Third Man! In what easily qualifies as the most intimate gig of their career, the Racs' return to stage after a nearly three-year hiatus provides a blistering and bombastic document to the magnetic power of this band in the live arena. The effusive crowd, the crack horn section and brief jam on the Who's "I Can See For Miles" are all included here. Life doesn't get much better than this.

Live Ryman Auditorium 2011 (Double 12" Rawhide & Gold Vinyl + DVD)

The LP this coming quarter is a stunning live recording of the Raconteurs live at the Ryman Auditorium. Recorded from their most recent spell of shows in September 2011, the set is chock-full of all the unforgettable original tunes (no covers!) that make this band so essential. Of particular import are the barnstorming, bring-the-house down versions of "Blue Veins" and "Carolina Drama" both clocking in at over ten minutes in length. You like horn sections? Then dig the crack team on "The Switch and the Spur" and "Many Shades of Black." The band captured here hits the mark at full-throttle. Pressed on two LPs of 180-gram vinyl goodness, disc one on a rich rawhide and tobacco colored vinyl and disc two on luscious gold and oil colored vinyl. 

Our bonus item here is a companion DVD of the Raconteurs performance from the Ryman Auditorium. The four camera, high-definition shoot includes the venue (the venerable Ryman, where everyone from Hank Williams to Harry Houdini has performed) as an essential character. There's a reason why folks call the Ryman "the mother church" and we think this film illustrates the reasoning behind that precisely and pricelessly. To not only hear, but see the Raconteurs at their arguable zenith is a treat unparalleled.

Open Your Eyes b/w You Made a Fool Out of Me 7"

The 7” for this shipment features previously unreleased recordings by the Raconteurs from their Consolers of the Lonely sessions. “Open Your Eyes” b/w “You Made a Fool Out of Me” are two songs that would later be re-recorded and repurposed for Brendan Benson solo albums. “Fool” would appear on Benson's 2009 release My Old Familiar Friend while “Open” is featured on his upcoming album What Kind of World under the title “Here in the Deadlights.” The versions on the 7” are not outtakes, demos, b-sides or anything of a cast-off nature. Rather, they are songs that just did not find a spot on the LP. (On Vault CD 156)
“'Open Your Eyes' sounds like a hit. Seems like it could've been released as a single and I can't remember why it didn't make the album” – Jack White

Side A: Open Your Eyes

Third Man Singles Compilation: Volume III - 2011 (Black, White & Yellow Triple LP)

2011 was a massive year for us and it takes THREE LP's to fit all of our singles inside! We regrettably had to omit our Green Series singles from '11 because a 4 LP set was something we weren't ready to tackle just yet. We've loved the idea of these singles comps but are putting these baby's to rest, maybe one day they'll come out in some other form, but vault members will be the only ones with the vinyl albums!

To spice it up, we're offering these three LP's on Third Man's standard three colors of vinyl…black, yellow and white. On top of that, we're also including a full fold-out poster depicting the covers of all the singles to compliment the same poster we've included the two previous years. They all fit together so prepare to dedicate some wall space. The matching of these three pieces will rival the magnificence of the Ghent Altarpiece and will hopefully be stolen less frequently.

Third Man's 2010 Devil's Night DVD

Our wild card entry for Vault #10 is the mighty-impressive visual document of Third Man's 2010 Devil's Night party. Filled with live performances from the Black Belles (their first time on stage!) and the Greenhornes (conspicuously looking like ZZ Top) MC'd by the vivacious Elvira (Mistress of the Dark), the evening was something those who were in attendance will not soon forget. Coupled with sword-swallowing, fire-breathing and the fair amount of zombies and the undead (but enough about our interns), the footage on this DVD gives an inside look at the festive activities and will be required viewing for even the most casual fans of the bands, label, movies or food.
