Whites Stripes Colored Vinyl for Record Store Day

Peel-Sessions

A Jack White 45 is also being offered.

By Uncle Blurt

Fellow wax enthusiasts are certainly smiling along with me this morning at the news that the White Stripes have entered this year’s Record Store Day (April 16) fray via a two-LP colored vinyl goodie, the previously unreleased Complete Peel Sessions. Third Man Records announced it at their website:

At both our Nashville and Detroit locations as well as a record store near you, we present the first-ever official release of The White Stripes Peel Sessions on 2 stuffed-to-the-brim discs, one red, one white. Capturing Jack and Meg at the precipice of international renown in the hubbub of “White Blood Cells,” their two live sessions with famed BBC DJ John Peel are arguably the best document of the White Stripes at that time. Having been widely bootlegged since their initial broadcast in 2001, these recordings are enjoying their first authorized release in celebration of their 15 year anniversary. The standard black vinyl version of this release will be available later this year.

As you can tell from the photo above, this is sweet. Meanwhile, Third Man also will be selling (at the Detroit and Nashville stores only, apparently) a special green wax Jack White single:

Again, only available at Third Man Nashville and Third Man Cass Corridor it’s Jack White’s version of Stevie Wonder’s “You Are the Sunshine of my Life” on It’s Not Easy Being Green Colored Vinyl™. This exclusive 7″ single includes White’s cover from his appearance on their show earlier this Spring with the legendary Muppets house band, The Electric Mayhem, on the a-side, plus the special TV rendition, featuring the rest of the Muppets singing along, as the b-side.
