Under Great White Northern Lights by The White Stripes

Here is the LP of the songs from the documentary film of the same name following the White Stripes as they trudged across Canada on a kind of farewell tour (they'd split up for good the following year). You get a host of Jack White originals and the usual grab bag of covers closing with 'Seven Nation Army' naturally. A nice document of their potent live power.

Bit of a tricky one to review as i haven't seen the movie that accompanies this release. From what i can gather from the press release 'Under Great White Northern Lights' documents The White Strips first full length tour of Canada and includes footage of the group playing venues large and small, conventional and unconventional. The CD companion piece features 16 tracks taken from various gigs of the tour. Though focused on the 'Icky Thump' material it also touches on elements of their entire back catalogue. The recordings are lively as hell with the band sounding increasingly more rocking with each new track and the crowds motivating the band with their insane screams...it's like a beatles gig or something. Anyway, not the big White Stripes fan so i'm not the best person to judge but this is some bad ass live material recorded in a no frills, spontaneous way and lively way. I'm sure the accompanying film will be just and raw and telling. Available in various formats, notably a deluxe version that includes the DVD/CD, double LP, a live DVD of their 10th anniversary show, a limited coloured 7" plus a hardcover book of photographs shot by Autumn de Wilde with a foreword by Jim Jarmusch and a silk-screened print (chosen at random from a selection of six designs) by Rob Jones. That's a lot of stuff ain't it.
