While Jack White is in the midst of a lengthy hiatus after the release of last year’s Dead Weather album Dodge and Burn, that doesn’t mean he won’t be releasing any new music – well, sort of. The former White Stripe and head honcho at Third Man Records will include live recordings by a few of his earliest bands as part of the label’s subscription vinyl service.

The 27th installment in the Vault’s subscription package will be three-LP set called Live at the Gold Dollar and will feature performances from the Detroit venue recorded between 1998 and 1999 including songs by White’s short-lived punk band Two Star Tabernacle (featuring future Blanche frontman Dan John Miller) and the Bricks – White’s pre-Raconteurs project with Brendan Benson.

The package will include a live recording of Two Star Tabernacle from January 16th, 1998, featuring “twangier older siblings” of the White Stripes’ “Hotel Yorba” and “Now Mary,” along with an unreleased track called “Itchy.”

The Bricks’ recording features early versions of White Stripes songs “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” and “You Got Her in Your Pocket,” and the unreleased track “One and Two.”

The third recording in the set features Sub Pop act the Go (who White briefly played guitar for) from November 1998 and includes a performance of White’s original song “Turn Your Little Light Bulb On,” which Third Man notes “has remained relatively unheard in the intervening eighteen years.”

Each of the gold LPs comes in a custom stylized jacket and will be housed in a soft touch telescoping box. The Vault package will also include a yellow and black 7″ of the Dead Weather’s “Let Me Through” and “Be Still.”

Subscriptions for this package end Jan. 31. Find out more here.
