I read this post the whole way through about 6 months ago. It made me instantly want to hear this album so I started the hunt. It doesn't exist on the internet which is awesome (Ebay Excluded). To have an album which is truly only available on vinyl in very limited quantities and not on the internet to download is probably as rare as music gets (Is this how Triple Decker owners feel?)
I frequent the Modlife Chat and a fellow vaulter/swirler gave me a great deal and to him I am grateful since I missed this package (BluefordT)
So I waited for a good time to listen as I wanted to give this album the respect it deserves haha. I did a Live Review on the Raconteurs Modblast and wanted to post it here in the hopes that someone else will see it and get the fire ignited in them to hear it like I did.
From me to you enjoy.....
<Maldoror17> 7:46 pm est 5/12/2011 BluefordT : Its begun I waited patiently to hear LIL I have indulged in some of the devils lettuce...Lets do It starts really strong...The sound is unreal perfect mix of crowd and band! Jack has a gritty sound when he sings more like WS than Racs...Lets see where this goes....the piano is great in You Don't Understand Me great singing from Jack on this one too.....This version of Top Special is very unique....I love that about Jack's stuff it can be different every time you hear it the album can be one thing and you hear it live and its not the same...but in a good way most bands can't pull that off (See Counting Crows)....Keep it Clean nothing like a good blues cover from Jack "If you want to hear Jack White screamin' ?oh yeah,?"......into Level ohhh yes..The guitar work on Level is like Tom Morello amazing.....Is that the bullet mic on Steady as She Goes??...Side 3 here i come
<Maldoror17> Gotta be up at 5am to surf Part 2 tomorrow night
<BluefordT> 9:48 am est 5/13/2011 HAPPY TGIF!!!
<BluefordT> Maldoror17: so do u like it?
<Maldoror17> BluefordT: UMMMMMM Hell yeah I do good live albums are great WS, DW and Portishead all have amazing live albums and now Racs
PART II....Side 3 starts a little soft with Rich Kid Blues good slow blues.....Blue Veins is always amazing solid but different each time I hear it arguably the Racs best song.....discuss.......Jack on the guitar and the others that surround him are great musicians all in their own right but make solid bands that come together like Voltron....Side Note : The fact that Jack steps back and does drums in DW says something special about the guitar skills of Dean Fertita it shows during the Live at TMR shows........Found this guess its talking about the same show - http://www.nme.com/news/the-raconteurs/36628
Salute Your Solution also another favorite of mine its got good fast pace the guitar work is killer.......Man seems like SYS was the last song by that ending but wait theres more.........Carolina Drama is such a good song to end on I assume Jacks playing Claudette Colbert. This album was everything people said it was I read the whole LIL post on the swirl and had to have this and it was totally worth getting.....This really makes me more and more excited for the WS Live from Mississippi if its close to this good quality we are all in for a real treat..........STAY TUNED>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>WS
