Introducing Vault Package 28

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 territories. 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.

The final performance of that tour was streamed live on TIDAL, but, as you know, we never pass up an opportunity to immortalize great music (it's a complex, really), so, we ran tape and film for the
entirety of the tour, and now YOU will reap the benefits of our obsession.

Vault Package #28 is a celebration of these unprecedented performances and the end of the era that they signified. Acoustic in Idaho showcases the performance at the Egyptian Theater in Boise and contains a career-spanning set with standards from the White Stripes, Raconteurs and Jack White solo catalog, reinterpreted for performance with no amplifiers. The performance was captured exclusively by ribbon microphones and is dripping with atmosphere. Including a cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s “I Asked For Water (She Gave Me Gasoline)” and ending with a rousing rendition of Leadbelly’s “Goodnight Irene,” what exists here is pure magic. This double LP set will be pressed on Icy Idaho Blue vinyl.

Jack’s performance from the Wendy Williamson Auditorium in Anchorage, Alaska is a gem in its own right. 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.

From the Third Man Books, we present Pictures From Unknown States, an intimate collection of shots from photographer, close Third Man ally (and occasional clothing designer) 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.

These items fits together perfectly in a soft-touch, silk-screened box that only further cements the exquisite collection as an item no music fan can deny. It may just be our best Vault package yet.

I miss those days so very much. Sometimes feels like it's not worth posting stuff like this over here anymore, so I'm very glad that you did, mac.

 

As for this package, it got me all choked up yesterday.  Reading the announcement gave me a visceral flashback to that other, ominously worded announcement  a year ago that said Jack was going to take a break from touring for "a long period of time".  This package is beautiful and I cannot wait for both the music and the behind the scenes stuff, but it's also a reminder that we can speculate all we want, but we have no idea how long it'll be before he decides to step back out onto a stage again.

I'll definitely be back for this one. This forum lives and breathes for an active in the public eye Jack White. Without that, there isn't always much to talk about, which is too bad!

I hate Jack's solo stuff so I'm totally outty on this one - so super bummed I am car-less and won't be able to try and get the Peel Session LPs for RSD though.  No f'n clue why that's the RSD release and this is the Vault stuff...  Ugh.

No, a lot of people haven't. Seems to have been a pre-RSD snafu at the pressing plant. Welcome to the 3/9er Club.

The Peel Sessions aren't actually a RSD release, just released on the same day. You may be able to snag one for a decent price somewhere. MAYBE.

Cool. I'm generally never concerned about it. I'm of the mentality that it'll get here when it gets here. But when I saw the new package announced without even having received the last one, I was curious. Thanks.

That's happened so many times before, though.  

 

And I will never stop saying that I miss the days when we didn't get shipping confirmations at all. So much more fun then.  Seems like shipping confirmations just make people uptight (except for TJ.  And Avard, who never gets one.).

Jealous.  I'm looking forward to this one more than have any Vault release in, well, maybe ever.  But I haven't even got my shipping notification.

That was your 33rd post. That's it, you can't post anymore.

 

 

Just kidding.  Apparently the early part of the alphabet began receiving their packages before their shipping notification.  Those of us in the latter half of the alphabet who've not yet received our packages are just now beginning to receive shipping notices.  

With all the bullshit going on in the world these days, I'm beginning to feel like I really, really need this package. It will be a glorious antidote.

I didn't even get to complain about this one. ;) I was wondering the other day, what's the vault package we're waiting on? Is it soon? Is it too soon? Whatever. Then earlier today, someone shouts to me that there's a package up front for me--really? I didn't order anything. And there's the giant pizza box. And moments later, the shipping notification. Einstein Express, when it absolutely has to be there yesterday.
