The Vault wrote:Dear Vault members,

Unfortunately a retailer has put up for sale a box set for The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights. We strongly urge you to not purchase from this retailer as full details will be announced about this later in the week.

I'd also like to point out that this information was not released by anybody associated with The White Stripes, had it been, you would have heard about it first.

Just in case you're frantically wondering, I'm not buying from either of those sites and I'd reccommend you don't either. Wouldn't be surprised if their shipment from the manufacturer somehow goes... missing.. :?

I'm excited for this!! watching that new trailer there is A LOT of the Whitehorse show in the movie, I can even see myself in the trailer :) I think both of the other videos might be Whitehorse as well, it's tough to tell with no sound and with it all being in black & white and zoomed in though.. I can't even remember if they played those songs there to be honest.. I'm going to be watching this movie A LOT I just wish it was on blu-ray..
