The White Stripes: l'album live


Nel 2011 Jack e Meg White si dividevano (“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful”) lasciando ai posteri e alla storia sei album realizzati tra il 1999 e il 2007 esclusa l’ultima release del 2010 (il DVD ‘Under Great White Northern Lights’). In occasione dei 10 anni di ‘Elephant’ la sempre attenta Third Man Records pubblica il succoso doppio LP live ‘Nine Miles From The White City’ che raccoglie lo show del 2 luglio 2003 alla Aragon Ballroom di Chicago. 26 brani per 79 minuti di musica esplosiva nei quali figura la rara cover di ‘Party of Special Things to Do’ di Captain Beefheart. I White Stripes al massimo dello splendore insomma.
