Long Out of Print on LP: Remastered Sonics Lay Waste to Those on Rare Original Pressings

Here is where it all begins. Spare, minimal, and economical, the White Stripes' 1999 debut set the tone for the legendary releases that would follow. Featuring booming sounds made with just voice, guitar, and drums, the self-titled record relishes pounding drums, jagged guitar riffs, howling vocals, and bashed-out rhythms fueled on fuzzed-out effects and primal passion. A pair of well-chosen covers, Bob Dylan's "One More Cup of Coffee," and Blind Willie Johnson's "John the Revelator," make this a must-have. The White Stripes were never again as raw as they are here.

In the way it blends punk, blues and garage rock, guitarist/vocalist Jack White described the album as "really angry...the most raw, the most powerful, and the most Detroit sounding record we've made."

As for the sonics, now better than ever, remastered from the original analog source? The White Stripes' use of analog and low-fidelity equipment in the recording process partnered with a DIY approach created a simplicity of composition, arrangement and performance that sets them apart from their contemporaries.

In 1999, The White Stripes signed with the California-based label Sympathy for the Record Industry. In March 1999, they released the single "The Big Three Killed My Baby", followed by their debut album, The White Stripes, which was released on June 15, 1999.

The self-titled debut was produced by Jack and engineered by Jim Diamond at his Ghetto Recorders studio in Detroit.[31] The album was dedicated to the seminal Mississippi Delta blues musician, Son House—an artist who greatly influenced Jack. The track "Cannon" from The White Stripes contains part of an a cappella version, as performed by House, of the traditional American gospel blues song "John the Revelator". The White Stripes also covered House's song "Death Letter" on their follow-up album De Stijl.

Looking back on their debut during a 2003 interview with Guitar Player, Jack said, "I still feel we've never topped our first album. It's the most raw, the most powerful, and the most Detroit-sounding record we've made."


Allmusic said of the album:

Jack White's voice is a singular, evocative combination of punk, metal, blues, and backwoods while his guitar work is grand and banging with just enough lyrical touches of slide and subtle solo work... Meg White balances out the fretwork and the fretting with methodical, spare, and booming cymbal, bass drum, and snare... All D.I.Y. punk-country-blues-metal singer-songwriting duos should sound this good.
