Reissues available November 30th
Third Man Records is proud to announce the long-overdue reissues of the first three LPs by The White Stripes. Out-of-print in North America since 2005, the utmost care was taken in presenting these records in the best way possible.
The folks at Third Man started by mastering each LP from the original analog master tapes, the first time this process had been used for any of these titles. While extremely labor-intensive, this method ensured that the material was never converted into a digital signal. The result is an audio quality that stiffens the hairs on the back of your neck.
They pressed each record on 180-gram vinyl, again, the first time any of these three albums have been afforded this superior vinyl weight.
For artwork, they started from scratch and went back and tracked down all the source material, working from the original photographic prints to provide the crispest versions possible of these album covers.
From there, they printed the artwork on the deluxe old-style, tip-on sleeves from the wonderful folks at Stoughton Printing in California. This process involves printing the artwork on on sheet of paper (a slick) which is then folded over and hand-glued to a heavy board blank jacket. The difference in the final product of a tip-on sleeve as opposed to a regular, direct-to-board sleeve is akin to the difference between hardcover and paperback books.
Also, for the first time ever, each record comes with a coupon for MP3 downloads of the entire album.
All these factors together makes these versions of The White Stripes, De Stijl and White Blood Cells the DEFINITIVE editions of these albums. These are the versions The White Stripes want people to have for posterity.
And to tickle the collectors, we pressed limited numbers of each title on split-color red and white vinyl. All three albums will be available on black vinyl for purchase from our online store starting on November 30th. The split-color and black vinyl of The White Stripes will be available for purchase on November 30th at the Third Man Records store front in Nashville, with the split-color and black vinyl of De Stijl and White Blood Cells to follow on December 7th and December 14th, respectively.
Listen to Elephant on Radio 1 BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe will be playing The White Stripes' album Elephant in its entirety as part of the "Masterpiece Series" on Monday, November 22nd between 7 and 9 pm GMT. Be sure to tune in.

The White Stripes' Marimba up for auction to support Nashville flood victims
Jack White and Third Man Records are continuing in their efforts to help the thousands of people in the Nashville area who've lost so much in the recent floods by auctioning a genuine, one-of-a-kind red and white Ludwig Musser marimba which was custom-made for The White Stripes and used live on their 2005-06 worldwide tour for Get Behind Me Satan. All of the proceeds from this auction will be going to benefit The Red Cross - Nashville Chapter.
The marimba made its live debut on May 11th 2005 at the Fundidora Amphitheater de Coca Cola in Monterrey, Mexico and was subsequently used in concert in Panama, Colombia, Brazil, Latvia, Poland, Russia, New Zealand, Japan and every other country the White Stripes played in 2005-2006. The marimba itself was unceremoniously flipped over by Jack White at the last show of the tour in Osaka, Japan on March 9th, 2006, and has since been safely stored in Nashville in its custom red white and black flight case, which is also included in the auction.
Bids are currently being accepted, now through May 24th HERE.
