On June 14th of this year, Jack White unleashed arguably the single best performance in the 13 year history of the Bonnaroo festival.
In an expansive field in Manchester, TN, filled with approximately 70,000 fans, White let loose a tour-de-force, 26-song, two-hour and forty-five minute career-spanning set. From White Stripes songs like “Hotel Yorba” and “Icky Thump” to Raconteurs numbers such as “Top Yourself” and “Steady, As She Goes” through “Blue Blood Blues” by the Dead Weather…not to mention a wide selection of his solo material and covers of two surf rock classics “Pipeline” by the Chantays and “Misirlou” by Dick Dale. And Led Zeppelin’s “The Lemon Song”? He did that too.
In order to celebrate a show of such historical heft, Third Man Records has decided to dedicate the entirety of it’s 22nd Vault package to this performance.
Three vinyl LPs (white, blue and black), housed in a soft-touch, telescoping box, topped off with a lenticular television on the cover…this is by far the most ambitious Vault package yet. The audio has been mixed by Third Man’s in house engineer, three time Grammy Award-winner Vance Powell and stands as a marked improvement over the on-the-fly board mix heard in webcasts, YouTube uploads and shady downloads.
In addition, there will be a DVD of the FULL performance, re-edited from the original raw footage by Brad Holland (filmmaker extraordinaire), for a truly memorable visual document of the evening.
We could’ve stopped there…but anything worth doing is worth overdoing, right?
Also included in the package will be four high-quality 8×10 photographs from the evening shot by David Swanson. Suitable for framing, timeless, these will increase the value of your home tenfold.
(said to the guys in production) “Is that all? NO?!?!? Are you kidding me? What else could we offer?”
Apparently we’ve lost our minds and gone as for to include a customized Jack White patch, a replica backstage pass sticker AND a poster in this beast of a package.
You want a custom-designed USB with super-secret extra added bonus materials too? Have at it.
If this package doesn’t make you happy…nothing will.
Subscriptions are open now, get yours in before the October 31st deadline.
