Hot damn.  Icky Thump, and then some.  

 

Pretty early for an announcement, no?  Either way, I'm sure yo've all seen it by now and are hopefully excited.  I don't mind having a second version of Icky Thump on vinyl if it comes with these extras.

Nigh on ten years ago, the White Stripes unveiled the most ambitious record of their career. Taking its name from the mis-appropriation of the British exhortation “Ecky thump” the Stripes’ Icky Thump would prove to be the final full-length studio album from the beloved Detroit duo. To celebrate not only the ten years since Icky Thump’s release, but also twenty years since Jack and Meg started the White Stripes AND the 500th release in the Third Man Records’ catalog, we are delighted to announce the release of our 33rd Vault package, Icky Thump X.


Deluxe Icky Thump 180-gram, colored vinyl

The cornerstone of the package is the deluxe, “contained explosion” colored vinyl repressing of Icky Thump. Previously only ever available on boring black vinyl, this double LP, 180-gram vinyl dream is housed in a glorious tip-on sleeve with slightly modified artwork and sealed with a Victorian update on the original red/white sticker that was begrudgingly slit open by fidgety record collectors overly concerned with "condition." Remastered from the original 1” analog tapes in Nashville, TN, Icky Thump will be the first-ever Vault title manufactured at Third Man Pressing in Detroit. You will not believe your ears.

Track List:
Icky Thump
You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told)
300 MPH Torrential Outpour Blues
Conquest
Bone Broke
Prickly Thorn, But Sweetly Worn
St. Andrew (This Battle Is In The Air)
Little Cream Soda
Rag & Bone
I’m Slowly Turning Into You
A Martyr For My Love For You
Catch Hell Blues
Effect & Cause


12" Icky Thump Extras Vinyl

The logical companion piece to Icky Thump is the collection compiling all nine of the non-album b-sides recorded for (and during) the release and tour cycle. Icky Thump Extras joins live covers (Hank Williams’ “Tennessee Border”), alternate versions recorded in the middle of a horse-racing track in Canada (“You Don’t Know What Love Is…”) with Beck-produced exclusives (“It’s My Fault For Being Famous”) and couples them with newly reimagined artwork from Grammy Award-winning designer Rob Jones. Consider this the first and last time any of these songs will appear on 12-inch vinyl, pressed on luminescent lunar-colored vinyl. Extras will also be manufactured at Third Man Pressing in Detroit.

Track List:
Tennessee Border (originally by Hank Williams)
Baby Brother (originally by Bill Carter and the Rovin Gamblers)
You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told) (frat rock version)
A Martyr For My Love For You (acoustic version)
It’s My Fault For Being Famous
Cash Grab Complications On The Matter
Honey, We Can’t Afford To Look This Cheap
Conquest (acoustic mariachi version)
Conquista (Spanish language version)


The Red Demos

Prior to entering Blackbird Studios for the tracking of Icky Thump, the White Stripes did a full run-through of the tracks in demo form to workshop ideas and get thoughts on tape at their Nashville rehearsal spot. This would prove to be the ONLY time the band would ever demo an album before recording. Forgotten by all involved in the intervening ten years, The Red Demos is a startling insight into the germination of the songs that would soon be blasted out at arenas and festivals the world over. Of particular interest is the first ever release of the instrumental “Monkeys Have It Easy”, a title previously teased via the original Icky Thump press release in 2007. Cover art depicts a working mock-up of the unedited image used on the original album and exists as the ideal compliment to both that original issue and the mono mix of Icky Thump from Vault Package #1. The Red Demos will also be pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit.

Track List:

You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You’re Told)
A Martyr For My Love For You
Rag and Bone
Catch Hell Blues
Little Cream Soda
Prickly Thorn, But Sweetly Worn
Monkeys Have It Easy (previously unreleased)
Bone Broke
Icky Thump
Conquest
300 MPH Torrential Outpour Blues


Exclusive Polaroid Photo Book

To further push this package into “I Cannot Believe They Did That" territory is an exclusive book comprised of Polaroid photos, tracking notes and insight from Icky Thump session photographer and White Stripes’ confidante David Swanson. Comprised 100% of previously unseen and unshared material, the of-the-moment documentation of the album and its recording process by Swanson’s intuitive and discerning eye is revelatory.

Mystery Art Prints by Rob Jones

To even further blow this thing out of the water is one of nine different 8x10 White Stripes images by Rob Jones. Randomly inserted so you have no idea which one you’ll get, these include classic updates on art and graphics from the original release era in addition to completely new ideas, all rendered in the highest quality silkscreen printing and suitable for immediate framing or burning.

"Rag and Bone" Enamel Pin Set

Not enough? Ok, take TWO enamel pins that when combined depict the horse skeleton imagery originally featured on the 7-inch artwork for “Rag and Bone” and understand full well that the addition of said pins will elevate any drab old potato sack to a best-dressed list ensemble.

Cross of St. Andrew Soft Touch Box

All of these components will be lovingly housed in a soft-touch coated telescoping box that reproduces the cross of St. Andrew used as an important graphic in Icky Thump’s issue ten years ago and rendered even more poignant now as the specific version of that cross (the Cross of Burgundy) forms the shape of an X.

Subscriptions are now open for Vault 33. Vault 32 is shipping now.




Definitely an Eckstravaganza. More detailed pics are at the News post here-- https://thirdmanreco...3-icky-thump-x/

What caught my attention was this, concerning the B-sides LP:

 

 Consider this the first and last time any of these songs will appear on 12-inch vinyl, pressed on luminescent lunar-colored vinyl

 

This means:

 

A) We won't have a Double LP with all the B-sides as we were waiting for.

 

B) As witty as TMR is, they're saying those B sides will be available for this unique time, on colored vinyl, leaving the door open to a future release on boring black vinyl.

It's a shame the B-Side LP won't include the acoustic version of "You don't know what love is" since that was, technically speaking, an A-Side...

Yeah, I am looking forward to this as well.  I got my 'confirm your address' email recently and it made me think of this vault package again.  I have to think back to #26 to see when I was happily expecting another vault release this much.

This is my first vault package so I'm super excited! Any idea when they will start shipping?

Usually 4-6 weeks from the payment deadline for the quarter. You'll get an e-mail notification when they're getting ready to ship, and then another e-mail with tracking info when they begin generating shipping labels.
