RNR News and Notes

Jack White and Third Man Records aren't known for being conventional - so this summer, when the White Stripes’  third album White Blood Cells turns 20 - instead of a reissue - they will release White Blood Cells XX - an anniversary companion to the original album.  The release will be part of the label's Vault Package.

 

 

 

The first disc of the release, which will be a red vinyl, features a collection of unreleased demos and alternate takes of album tracks (including an “alternate take” of “Fell In Love With A Girl,” which you can preview below) plus songs that never made it to any kind of completed/released form.  

 

 

 

The second disc-  a white LP, features a 2001 live show at Headliners  in Louisville. 

 

There's also a DVD of behind-the-scenes footage and a booklet with rare posters, flyers, and photos.
