Jack White - Live At Third Man Records 2xLP - Blue/Black Split ColorVinyl

Third Man (2012)

As with yesterday's 7", this live 2xLP was a part of the Third Man Vault series, and was the reason I signed up. At the best of times I'm not a huge fan of live albums, so why did I buy this? To be truthful, I was primarily sold on the lenticular cover. Lenticular things are like those old cracker jack prizes, where if you look at the image from one angle, you see something, but if you look at it from another angle, the image changes. This album cover has 2 different images of Jack White that go back and forth as you adjust how you're holding the cover. I tried to take a picture right in the middle of the 2 images, but not sure I really captured it well.

As for the record, it's pretty good. Solid live recording, White plays solo tracks, White Stripes songs and covers. It's a fun show and he's obviously having a good time playing. He plays in front of 2 different backing bands, the Peacocks on sides 1 and 2 and the Buzzards on 3 and 4. Frankly, I can't really tell the difference. Though I don't imagine this will get tons of heavy play from me in the future, it is a really good live show and the packaging is just off the charts cool.
