’98 White Stripes Outs Due on Third Man


Two songs hail from
same recording session that yielded the first single – part of Jack White’s
label’s subscription series. And what about that live Raconteurs album!?!


By Blurt Staff


Okay, White Stripes and Raconteurs fans, time to pony up!


Third Man Records – Jack White’s label – will be releasing
outtakes from the Stripes’ debut 7″ recording of “Let’s Shake Hands “- marking
the first time ever that the band has released any outtakes from any past
recordings throughout their 10 year career.  Recorded in 1998 during the
same session that yielded their debut single, alternate versions of the title
track and its accompanying b-side “Look Me Over Closely” will be made available
exclusively to subscribers of The Vault; Third Man Records’ groundbreaking
online subscription service.


In addition, subscribers will also receive another piece of
exclusive vinyl: The Raconteurs, Live in London
– a double LP 180-gram vinyl gatefold of the band’s 2008 live performance in London – along with a
limited edition Rob Jones-designed screen print poster for The Dead Weather. 


This package is the second installment of give-a-ways to
from Jack White’s Third Man Records to The Vault’s Platinum service members,
which provides subscribers two pieces of exclusive vinyl, not available in
stores or online, as well as a limited edition t-shirt or screen print every 3
months.  Registration has opened for three weeks (October 1st through
October 22nd) for the Platinum service of The Vault which grants subscribers
not only these exclusive give-a-ways, but also access to audio and video
previews, pre-sale concert tickets, early entry to gigs, live-to-video
performances and direct contact with Third Man artists.


“Direct contact,” hmmm… o, the mind just boggles!
