Jack White to issue first White Stripes performances

Jack White hass announced that recordings of The White Stripes’ debut performance will be made available to fans this year.

Three recordings from an open mic night at The Gold Dollar in August 1997 will be issued on a strictly limited edition red vinyl 7″.  Songs included are ‘Jimmy The Exploder’, ‘St James Infirmary Blues’ and ‘Love Potion #9’.

Fans who wish to own these recordings will have to sign up to Jack White’s Third Man Vault, a record collector’s subscription which costs approximately £75 per quarter for UK fans.

Also issued in the next Vault package will be a coloured vinyl 12″ LP containing more White Stripes recordings from a different Gold Dollar show.  Both records will be housed in a limited White Stripes tote bag.

The cut off date for the package subscription is July 31st.
