Vault #47: Jack White Live at The Masonic Temple

Post by chaptertwentyone » Mon Jan 11, 2021 5:42 pm

On July 30th, 2014 Jack White played one of the most captivating live shows of his career. With the friendly confines of Detroit’s Masonic Temple providing as much of a home field advantage as White could ever get, this tour-de-force, three hour plus, 38 song barn-burner of a set spanned the breadth of his recorded career and left all comers in its wake gobsmacked, a testament to the undiminished magnetism of a performer at the height of his powers.

Kicking off at breakneck pace with three sizzling fan favorites from the White Stripes back catalog, the impromptu song selection never loses focus and instead delivers body blow after body blow of unrelenting passion. Inspired, off-the-cuff covers of Beck’s “Devil’s Haircut” to Zeppelin’s “Lemon Song”, Hank Williams’ “Ramblin’ Man” to Junior Wells’ “Hoodoo Man” absolutely delight. White’s Dead Weather bandmates Alison Mosshart and Dean Fertita unexpectedly join onstage for a particularly heavy version of “I Cut Like a Buffalo.” Chock full of delightful stage banter, local references and even a laugh-out-loud takedown of a supposed icon (you’ll have to listen to know exactly), the performance manages to blow everyone’s mind, both satiating desire and yet quizzically also leaving them wanting more...such are the paradoxes of a truly transcendent evening.

As Third Man Records’ 47th Vault package, we are proud to present here for the first time, Jack White Live at the Masonic Temple 7-30-14. Spanning four 180-gram colored vinyl LPs, housed in an immaculate slipcase cover with custom printed photo inner sleeves, bedecked with stunning photos shot that evening by official tour photographer David Swanson, the overall package is exquisite and grand in a manner befitting of the audio it contains.

For an extra special added bonus, Third Man is including a 7-inch single of Jack White’s October 2020 performance on Saturday Night Live. Jumping in with two days notice to fill the musical guest slot, White unleashed an explosive power trio medley of “Don’t Hurt Yourself” (a song he co-wrote with Beyonce and included on her “Lemonade” album) into the White Stripes’ classic “Ball and Biscuit” while interpolating elements of “Jesus Is Coming Soon”, a song originally written by Blind Willie Johnson about the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak that feels uniquely relatable in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. On the flipside is White’s blistering reimagination of his 2014 track “Lazaretto” with a brief, respectable, finger-tapping solo nod to Eddie Van Halen (performed on an EVH signature model guitar), who passed away earlier that week. Inarguably one of the most talked about and praised Saturday Night Live musical performances in some time, it felt only right to enshrine these takes into the vinyl permanence.

Pretty stoked for this one. I was there and it is one of my favourite times I have seen Jack.

I also like that it's just all vinyl. I never end up using any of the random "extras".

Pretty cool fact about the Blind Willie Johnson song. I did not know that.

I think I ended up selling off Vaults 14/22/28 as I was a bit underwhelmed by those live JW packages (and so passed on 37). This JW live might just be about right looking at the track list and hearing the Missing Pieces sample.

14 is my favorite Vault Package (also my first, and I love that you get a set with each band) but I sold off Bonnaroo a while back (not because it wasn't great). I've kept 28 (acoustic) because it's different and also skipped out on 37.
I don't remember the last VP I've ordered (edit: VP28) but on the fence with this one. It looks great but I can't really see myself listening to a 4-LP album all that often (and I'm trying not to buy things to sit and collect dust anymore, I'm getting old lol). I do love that it comes with the 7 inch from SNL as well. Decisions....

Huh.
Just coming to the realization this show was only forty six days after the Bonnaroo performance.
Strange.

I dont mind that it's a live release "so close" to one that was released years ago. This is great for all that may have missed out on Bonnaroo, as well as others who are interested. They can only have so much stuff to release anyway at this point so its better than a Pokey Vault lol

Oh, no I’m not complaining.
It was just something I noticed.
Plus it was a good summer for blistering performances and excellent banter.

I’d jump on a live Pokey vault too. Their live shows are amazing. True musicians.

I love Pokey as an opener. I saw him once as a headliner and he played well over two hours and it was way too long for me. I am all for long shows, but for some reason, his set just seemed to really drag on. An hour or an hour and a half is good for me with him.

I’ve seen him a few times. Opener, featuring.
None of which is relevant here.
