Jack White Releasing Rare Early Recording From Bowling Alley Concert

Jack White's Third Man Records will be releasing a rare live Jack White and The Bricks recording as part of their forthcoming coming "Vault Package."

The album, Jack White and the Bricks: Live on the Garden Bowl Lanes, will be released on bowling-pin-white vinyl and will feature nine-tracks recorded live in 1999 at a Detroit bowling alley during the first concert performed by the short-lived group.

The band featured future Raconteur Brendan Benson on guitar, Kevin Peyok (The Waxwings) on bass and Ben Blackwell (The Dirtbombs) on drums.

According to the label: the live show took place on White's 24th birthday, July 9th, 1999. Sharing a bill with the Greenhornes, the stage itself was situated on lanes 11-14 (yes, the actual bowling lanes!) of the legendary Garden Bowl in Detroit.

While being the longest continually-run bowling establishment in North America, the Garden Bowl, along with the Gold Dollar, was also the de facto home of the then-bustling Detroit garage rock scene.

The final song of the night, a cover of Michigan's 60's garage legends ? and the Mysterians "Ain't It a Shame" is to "a girl who has to go get surgery soon"...a dedication Jack sent out to bandmate Meg White prior to a tonsillectomy operation.

The show was recorded to four-track reel-to-reel in lane ten by an engineer who, although forgotten to time, left his imprint on the recording with a few track cut-outs and slight audio imperfections..
