I read a rumor recently that the White Stripes will be releasing a new album soon. That inspired me to post some of my favorite rare tunes from my own collection. Most are live or unreleased tracks.
If you’re a big fan and you want them all, then scroll down to Z is for Zip file and save yourself the trouble of doing all these bullshit savefile links. My blog is such a pain in the ass ’cause I don’t pay for hosting, blah blah blah. There, I did your complaining for you.
Have at it:
A is for Ashtray Heart-White Stripes
B is for Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) (Sonny Bono cover)-Raconteurs
B is also for Bushwalla’s cover of Hotel Yorba
C is for covers! Cat Power-I Want to Be the Boy (White Stripes cover)
F is for Fell in Love with a Girl (Acoustic version)-White Stripes
H is for Hello Operator-White Stripes. I love this number–real tough bluesy tune.
I is for It Ain’t Easy-The Raconteurs
J is for Judy. Together/Moody Miss Judy-The Raconteurs
L is for the Lips! Seven Nation Army-Flaming Lips
M is for Moonage Daydream (Bowie cover)-The White Stripes
