Own 12″ Vinyl of The White Stripes’ First-Ever Concert

White Stripes Concert
Own The White Stripes ‘Live from the Gold Dollar’ on red 12″ vinyl

If you lust for all things cool, offbeat, and a bit nostalgic, you are likely a fan of Jack White and his savvy label, Third Man Records. The man knows how to dig up treasure and dish out its riches like no other entrepreneurial rock and roll brand in music today.

Once again, White’s Third Man Records has announced something truly awesome. As of today, you can own a 12″ white vinyl LP of The White Stripes’ inaugural live show at the Gold Dollar in Detroit on August 4, 1997. The album, Live at the Gold Dollar, documents a bona fide historical event as far as indie rock of the past quarter-century goes. If you caught the exceptional documentary Under the Great White Northern Lights, you’ll recognize the scene below which shows Jack and Meg reminiscing about that very show.

The recording was ripped straight from the soundboard, so you know it has to be killer!

Along with Live from the Gold Dollar, Jack is throwing in a red 7″ vinyl of the band’s first open mic performance and a rocking tote bag with the band’s classic peppermint logo. The collection, being sold as Vault Package #13, will start shipping orders on July 31.

Take advantage, because this has to be about the closest thing to a Jack Rabbit Slims $5 milkshake you can find in music today. Keep it coming, Jack!
