Jack Whites Red Hot Blues Vol 3

I first put this compilation together back in 2005 to create the best 80 minutes
of Jack White I could find. It was apparent then, and it's abundantly apparent now, that this guys knowledge of music and interpretive talent transcends the bounds of what we know as The White Stripes. This was an illustrative record.

Since then the dude's morphed a few times. The Stripes have exploded and pushed the envelope as much as can be done with a duo. Jack's found other avenues to develop, The Raconteurs and the Dead Weather. It's time to update the record.

No easy choices. Good songs got dropped because the audio quality was slightly below par (House of The Risin' Sun and Dyin' Crapshooters Blues the most disheartening losses). Songs got added that may not stand the test of time to reappear on Vol 4 in 2015, but they sound great now. (300 MPH, Bang Bang)

So fire up your walkmans (or that microchip imbedded in your brain, I'm a little behind on the technology) and enjoy!
