Third Man Records Announces Massive White Stripes-Themed Vault Package

Third Man Records Vault Package No. 23
Third Man Records

“As 2015 marks 10 years since the release of the White Stripes‘ ‘Get Behind Me Satan’ album and tour, we are proud to use that as the focus of our 23rd Vault package.”

And so Third Man Records kicks off the new year with some very exciting news on their Facebook page: Vault Package No. 23 is ready! The note goes on, “Completely dedicated to the White Stripes and highlighting their time in South America in 2005, this package should leave fans beyond satisfied.”

How satisfied you ask?

The main item in 2015’s first Vault package is ‘Under Amazonian Lights,’ a double-LP that features the live recording of the Stripes’ gig in Manaus, Brazil. Within the setlist (check out the full track list below) is a cover of Bob Dylan‘s ‘Lovesick Blues,’ two versions of ‘The Same Boy You’ve Always Known,’ two versions of ‘Passive Manipulation,’ a taste of Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘I Asked for Water,’ and ‘The Nurse,’ packed full of marimba. As Third Man describes the concert, it is “one of the most iconic and memorable shows the White Stripes ever played.”

Along with the double-LP, Package No. 23 will include a DVD of the Manaus performance. In the middle of the set — and captured here on the DVD — Meg and Jack White stepped off the stage to head outside of the venue where they performed an authentically unplugged rendition of ‘We Are Going to Be Friends.’

A Third Man Vault Package is never complete without an exclusive 7-inch, and No. 23 is one of the most exciting in recent memory. Side A features a solo recording from White of ‘Let You Down,’ which was put together around 2000. Found in the song is a four-part harmony tracked by White; it’s backed with ‘Ain’t No Sweeter Than Rita Blues,’ which is described as a “quintessential White Stripes guitar/drums outtake instrumental.”

On top of all of that, those who pick up this package will also receive new postcards created by Grammy-winning designer Rob Jones; these pieces of art will celebrate the Stripes’ Brazil performances from 2005. There will also be a “badass death head monkey” enamel pin as well as a silk-screened Stripes poster that features “super-secret hidden glow in the dark graphics.”
