Vault #38: THE RACONTEURS CONSOLERS OF THE LONELY
8 October 2018

DEADLINE: October 31st at Midnight CT. Sign up NOW at thirdmanrecords.com/vault

"Daddy, will you tell me the story about the chickens again?"

Inauspiciously, in an off-the-mic comment, begins the wonderful opus of Consolers of the Lonely, the critically-lauded, fan-adored, Grammy Award-winning sophomore LP from the beloved quartet known as the Raconteurs.

Before surprise releases were common, the Raconteurs ambushed the world with the sudden, unannounced release of Consolers of the Lonely on March 25th, 2008… a time when coordinating a worldwide physical and digital surprise release was even less easily accomplished than it is today.

Internally referred to as “The Plug-Ins” at Warner Brothers so as to prevent information leaking, the album takes its title from an inscription on the frieze of a Washington D.C. post office and finds the Raconteurs at their mightiest, exploring what it means to be a rock band in the classic sense, full-on bombastic horn arrangements and gut-wrenching murder ballads sit side-by-side and while the swagger and confidence of riffs and licks for days firmly establish this album as one of the pre-eminent releases of the aughts.

To celebrate ten years since the release of Consolers of the Lonely, Third Man Records is beyond honored to reissue this noteworthy album. Pressed on incredibly unique magnificent copper foil vinyl, this is the first time the double LP has EVER been made available on colored vinyl. Coupled with a slightly re-imagined front cover highlighting new metallic accents to the iconic tintype image (after all, tin IS the traditional gift for a 10 year anniversary), this release was mastered directly from the original 1” master tapes and lovingly pressed at Third Man Pressing in Detroit, Michigan.

For our 7" for this package, we have something very special: the first NEW songs in ten years from recent sessions that will ultimately result in a new Raconteurs album in 2019!! That's right, we're not giving you track titles or even letting your hear a snippet. You'll have to wait until this package hits your doorstep.
The time for you all to get pretty dang excited about what is to come next year begins right... NOW!

Lastly, this very special Vault celebration of all things old and new of The Raconteurs will include a 4"x4" Copper and Black "R" Insignia embroidered patch for your rocker jean jacket and a set of four 2.5" Brushed Silver stickers featuring art from Consolers of the Lonely.

Pass, I'd be in for half cost though since this set is very light...

Another meh vault. Would be cool to hear unused tracks or alternate versions for the 10 year. But at least we get a new album soon!

I feel like they're trying to promote this vault package on the fact that the raconteurs are coming back next year, and are trying to hide how this vault package is really lacking.

Am-i expected to spent over 100$ Canadian for a reissue of an album, a 7'' of songs that's gonna be released in 2019, a patch and 4 stickers ?

Well I didn't know what to do with the vp37, because I think it was a little expensive for a double live. To be honnest pictures and flag didn't excite me a lot. But it was a live, I couldn't see him this year and I wanted to listen some songs in live (of his new album and White Stripes). But this vp38 it is too much to me. I will pass for sure. I already have the lp, I don't want a new one with the only difference is the color. I only want the 7'' and I will buy it on discogs later. The 10 years anniversary of Icky Thump was much better. A 12'' with bsides, a 12'' with a demo of the entire album, a photo book and a postcard from Rob Jones. That is a good anniversary, not this one.

Just a question. What does mean ''copper foil metallic vinyl''? Is it the name of a color or a special material like it was for Gatsby's deluxe edition ?

One at Third Man Records Nashville, the other one at Cass Corridor Detroit. Two live, on three lps, not three live.
