Jack White reaches into the vault for more White Stripes

Take it on faith – when Jack White announces a studio dry spell, batten down the hatches for a gullywasher. Ergo, hot on the heels of the guitarist/producer’s proclamation that his beloved White Stripes had broken up, out comes this bulletin from his Nashville-based studio/imprint Third Man Records: The White Stripes are back! In special vault-reissued name only, that is. And if you’re not a member? Fuggedabouddit. This package is for Vault insiders only, so sign up before the end of April to gain access at www.thirdmanrecords.com.

And it’s quite a set, culled from three distinct periods in the duo’s career. First is an early-years 7”, a cover of Love’s “Signed DC” b/w Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.” Next is a live DVD, “Under Moorhead Lights All Fargo Night,” taped at Ralph’s Corner Bar in Moorhead, MN on June 13th, 2000. And finally, a two-disc 180-gram vinyl edition of “Live In Mississippi,” a document of the White Stripes’ last-ever show in Southaven, Mississippi from July 31st, 2007. White hasn’t even given us a chance to miss him yet!
