Vinyl LP - Sealed
The eponymous 1999 debut from the Detroit guitar and drums duo, The White Stripes takes the less is more approach to new uncompromising heights. Jack White's voice is a strange brew of punk, metal and blues here while his guitar work is as grand as Meg's drumming is spare and methodical. The album hints at the raw and powerful sound that The White Stripes would pioneer into superstardom along with an old meets new musical pedigree displayed with covers of One More Cup of Coffee by Bob Dylan, the old Louie Armstrong standard by J. Primrose St. James Infirmary Blues and Stop Breaking Down by Robert Johnson. Jack describes the record as really angry, the most raw, the most powerful, and the most Detroit-sounding record we've made.

Customer Reviews for The White Stripes (Discontinued)

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
