Announced today--  http://thirdmanrecor...ult-package-26/
 

Vault26-admat-950.jpg


As Third Man prepares for the unveiling of its new storefront location in the Cass Corridor in Detroit, we’ve naturally looked back to our history and roots there. Less than a mile from the new TMR location (441 West Canfield) sat an important bar called the Gold Dollar. This bar not only hosted the first two live performances by the White Stripes (both featured in Vault package #13), but quite a few more legendary early sets by the band. Through their woodshedding Detroit years, the Gold Dollar stage would be where the White Stripes would continue to make their most important progress. After the Stripes finished the tracking of their first album (also taking place just a stone’s throw from the Dollar) in January 1999, they immediately focused attention on a live performance at the Gold Dollar on Saturday February 6th, 1999. Lead singer Jack White designed and printed two striking, distinct flyers to promote the show and the local free weekly Metro Times even did a mini-preview on the band to drum up interest for the show. With good friends They Come in Threes supporting the Stripes' second-ever headlining show, the gig was notable for the first-ever live performances of songs “Astro”, “Suzy Lee” and the Robert Johnson classic “Stop Breaking Down”…all of which would be featured on their self-titled debut album released just three months later. The transitional nature of the setlist of this performance captures the band as they grapple with the impending release of their new album and the best way to showcase that material prior to its release.

As the focal point of Vault package #26, a complete recording from that evening, newly mixed from original multi-track sources, will be pressed on blood red vinyl and made available to subscribers worldwide. The White Stripes Live at the Gold Dollar Vol. III is the third release (Vault 13 comprised both volumes I and II) in an on-going series that will eventually see the release of all extant audio from the band at the Gold Dollar. There are still many unheard treasures to be revealed.

This is the first White Stripes show released from the pivotal year 1999…the year which saw the band unleash their first album, do their first extended run of touring with three shows opening for Pavement in the Southeast and found Jack White buying his soon-to-be trademark Airline guitar…all building blocks to what would eventually turn the band into the international juggernaut they became.

[Check out the News page via the link above for a sound clip]

The White Stripes Live at the Gold Dollar Vol. III

Track list:

Broken Bricks
Jimmy the Exploder
The Big Three Killed My Baby
Stop Breaking Down (first live performance) (Robert Johnson)
Suzy Lee (first live performance)
Let’s Build a Home
Sugar Never Tasted So Good
Do
Little People
One More Cup of Coffee (Bob Dylan)
Astro (first live performance)
Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
Wasting My Time
Red Bowling Ball Ruth
Cannon/John the Revelator/Grinnin' in Your Face (Son House)
Let’s Shake Hands

In conjunction with the live album, a reproduction of one of the Jack White-designed flyers for that evening… three black-and-white peppermints, each varying in circumference and oriented on top of each other…will be included in the package as an 10.75” x 14" iron-on transfer. All Vault members will be welcome to submit photos of their use of the transfer and the member who’s submission is considered the “best” by the TMR team will win a rare, limited test pressing of the aforementioned LP.

Additionally, the other flyer from that evening (also a peppermint, this time on a field of red sparkly naugahyde) AND the setlist as written in Jack’s hand will be included as high-quality color reproductions. Fully utilizing everything in the TMR archives to round out the package finds us also printing the news clipping of the show preview and the hand-written price list from the merch table for that night. Third Man is nothing if not thorough.

Completing the Gold Dollar presentation will be two full-color, 8 x 10, glossy prints of photographs taken by the estimable Doug Coombe, featuring Jack and Meg live on stage at the tiny Cass Corridor club in 1999. These are visually arresting to say the least.

The 7” for Vault 26 is a continuation of the Dead Weather single series, pairing the moving torch song “Impossible Winner” and “Mile Markers.” When complete, every song from the Dead Weather’s critically-lauded album Dodge and Burn will appear exclusively in 7” form as a single on captivatingly colored vinyl. Are these two songs a hint as to the next possibly music video to come from this merry band of grifters…it seems only time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy Alison belt this one out complete with string section accompaniment and revel in the inherent beauty in this transcendent album-closer.

Harkening back to where this all started, the bonus item for this vault package will be an impressive 1.25” enamel pin of the new Third Man Records Cass Corridor logo. Soon to be seen on the lapels and collars of bon vivants the world over, this dazzling pin will no doubt impress even the most die-hard skeptics.

Subscriptions are open now. Like a Texas election, sign-up early and sign-up often. The subscription deadline for Vault Package #26 is OCTOBER 31st.

That setlist is insane. Has this show been in circulation before this? Even if it has, it should be great to have it newly mixed. And a continuing Gold Dollar series with "many unheard treasures to be revealed"? Yes, please.

I was missing some Stripes Vault, really. Getting back.

 

They said that now all the songs of Dodge & Burn are on 7", but I'm missing some songs like Let me Trough and Three Dollar Hat. Am I missing somethin?

I like the album - I actually never get tired of White Stripes live albums, they're the main reason I'm a Vault member.

It's the rest of the package I find disappointing. I get what they're trying to do with the promotional reproductions, but I don't know what I would do with them other than sticking them in a box. And I really don't need to have every song from the new Dead Weather album on a single - especially now that the album is out. I don't understand the appeal. Are their people out there that prefer having change the record after every song, rather than just once midway through the album?

I suppose I'll get this set, because I do want Gold Dollar Vol 3, but the price sure is high for what we're getting this quarter.

Stop Breaking Down (first live performance) (Robert Johnson)
Suzy Lee (first live performance)
Let’s Build a Home
Sugar Never Tasted So Good
Do
Little People
One More Cup of Coffee (Bob Dylan)
Astro (first live performance)
 
Except for Little People, that section of songs is gonna be so much fun to listen to. Especially Astro and Suzy Lee and the early version of Let's Build a Home!! I'm really happy about this package. I love the cover of the LP, too.
 
edited to fix what I wrote

I'll probably get this one just for the LP. I've never passed up a live LP on theirs.

The announcement says "When complete...", which makes it sound like there will be more DW singles in upcoming Vault packages.
 
 

 

Are their people out there that prefer having change the record after every song, rather than just once midway through the album?

 

I'm sure there are some folks who like singles for that reason, but stuff like this is more for the people who get really, really jazzed over colored vinyl and things that are "exclusive" to anyone who's willing and able to shell out $60 (or $80, in the case of our international buddies).
 


 

Except for Little People, that section of songs is gonna be so much fun to listen to.

 

Little People is one of my least favorite WS songs, but I'm curious to hear what it sounded like live back then. Who knows how different it might be from the album version?  To me, that's what's so cool about these early live shows-- In some cases, the band really sounds lousy, to the point that ya gotta wonder how on earth they made it the way they did. But you can practically hear the wheels in Jack's head turning, working things out.  To have a whole series of newly mixed versions of the Gold Dollar shows is going to be like going back in time (vicariously, of course) and watching the little baby that was the White Stripes take its first steps and learn to walk.  How could that not be fascinating?

I think I'm back in for this one. I like live stripes. I'm hoping for a little more variety though in the next few packages.

Me too. That is my whole reason for joining, for live unreleased music,
and primarily music of the Stripes! I can do with out a whole set of the
DW 7 inches... I would prefer a WS single of some kind. But live is
awesome and I can't wait for the Gold Dollar III!

I'm still waiting on that DIA show. If I remember correctly it was shot with three cameras and the quality (video & audio) was really good for a bootleg.

You are probably correct mac. It's been a few years. I apologize.

 

I just know that I adore that show and with the WS being from Detroit, I absolutely love that it was filmed in the DIA. That is an impeccable museum built in the early 20's with one of the finest collections of art around. And the band wasn't to bad that day either :)

The DW singles are the dumbest crap ever - and stop with the "special gift" junk - it take up space, could be a DVD or something and just ends up getting given away/sold as there's no room for all that crap.  I like the live Stripes but man if they hadn't automatically charged my account despite the fact I cancelled my order and the Vault store told me there was "nothing they could do" to reverse the charges which overdrew my account I guess I'm in for this one.  Starting to get kinda annoyed at all this colored hoo ha and what not, I will be hocking my DW singles at the local shop to try and recoup the cost of the charges.  Really pissed at TMR about this one as I don't even know how they managed to charge the account, so my ire is likely more aimed at them since I just had my first kid and had no money to cover the heat which got shut off for two days...  I mean come on.  Live Stripes good, repackaged crap and junk I will never use, would rather have a VHS-to-DVD release any day of the week.  What about some nice early Stripes video to fill out the package?  No, you're right I will definitely use a pin and a black and white poster more...  pff. :rant:
