On July 14, 1997 The White Stripes made their live debut with a three-song performance during The Gold Dollar Detroit’s open mic night. Today, in honor of the show’s 20th anniversary, Third Man Records has released a recording on digital and streaming services for the first time ever.
The White Stripes’ The First Show: Live On Bastille Day starts with Jack White and Meg White’s rendition of the folk song “St. James Infirmary.” From there, the pair unveils “Jimmy The Exploder” and an unusual take on Lieber and Stoller’s “Love Potion #9.” This soundboard recorded was previously available only as a 7″ as part of a past Third Man Vault Package.
The new release is available for purchase and streaming through most major services. Listen to The White Stripes’ The First Show: Live On Bastille Day:
