    Multiple maroon-colored limited edition vinyl from the American Epic series are up in Novelties. Some really good stuff if your collection needs some foundational blues/country/roots music.
    How do these sound?  Some old recordings can be pretty rough.
    I've the 'Blues' and 'Country' compilations on black vinyl and they both sound good. They're old recordings tho and have that nice, old-time vibe to them.

    Mine just updated & is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Also, I forgot to cancel, so it looks like I’ll be getting #34. Hoping that it’s something good!
    I don't think it's too late to cancel #34. It hasn't even been announced yet, and you can always cancel (or subscribe) after you know what it's going to be. :)
    Hmm...not sure why I received that email then. I’ll send them an email. Thanks.
    Oh, maybe I missed something, but what did the email say??
    It’s a vault payment. 3 months after I ordered #33. Doesn’t look like I can reverse it, so I hope that #34 is great!
    Ooohhh, sorry, I know what I was thinking - I've always been able to pick and choose because I've always cancelled my subscription before it's too late to do so, and then resubscribe after the next one's announced and I find out if I want it or not. I just remember that I didn't do that once, and ended up with that fucking Loretta Lynn vault against my will, lol.

    anyone ever heard Redd Blood Cells? It's the bassist from Redd Kross who added bass tracks to White Blood Cells. I believe Jack and Meg gave their blessing, but I'm not sure. If anyone wants it, I can wetransfer it to you. 

    http://www.reddkross.com/features/RBC/

    In the summer of 2002, Steven came up with the idea to do an art experiment by adding bass tracks to 2 White Stripes songs and sharing them with Redd Kross fans via the internet. The overwhelmingly positive response inspired him to cover the entire "White Blood Cells" record. Word spread quickly over the internet and soon press such as Entertainment WeeklyPitchfork Mediathe NY Times, BB Gun to name but a few ran articles about "Redd Blood Cells." Check out the animated explaination of the project, and at Creative Commons.

    The original intent was to post 2 songs per week, and it would all be over within a 2 month span of time; however the popularity of this art project has made us decide to archive at least part of it on www.ReddKross.com since so many people still come to the site looking for it.

    We've decide to leave Steven's diary and comments as he worked on the record, and a few artifacts that happened along the way. If you are looking for the actual MP3's, in honor with keeping with the original intent, they are no longer available here ... check music and file sharing services and good luck. The online CD was downloaded over 60,000 times, so there's a good chance you will be able to find them out there.

    Thank you to everyone who supported Redd Blood Cells, as well as the curiosity seekers. We hope you enjoy this digital time-capsule.

    I'll be honest, I want it but I have trouble now listening to all the live WS albums I have. Are these complete shows?

    I can't see pics at work, so I didn't know you were responding to the announcement of vault 34. I thought maybe steelerfan had some bootlegs or something. 

    I'm going to pass on this one.

    how the hell do you unsubscribe? I can't find a link on my account at TMR. I must have unsubscribed before, but I don't remember how!

    edit: never mind. found it.

    Ditto re: listening to the live albums. I've been a member of the Vault since Day One and fortunate to have all of 'em. However, many are collecting dust (probably gonna be selling some of those soon) and this one probably would as well. Just cancelled my membership and'll hop back on the train for a future vault that piques my interest.

    Is it just the sound of the live albums you guys don't like? (i.e. the playing style)

    Love their studio work and def glad to have some live material in my collection but I only need so many TWS live albums. After a while it becomes a bit redundant.

    Hmm... Two White Stripes packages back to back. Was hoping to get a break this quarter but here, take my money. I think they realise that anything White Stripes sells best. They've ditched the 7" again as well.

    that was part of what didn't appeal to me this time. I always dig the 7" and dvd. the poster is not something I care for. it would be cool if you were at one of those shows, but otherwise.....

    Hmmmm I think I'll cancel soon before this drops. Don't have any live ws stuff but these set lists don't really blow my mind when I glance at them.  Plus I've been bothered with myself for buying the icky box....  all I really want are the 12" records, the rest is all a lot of waste to me.

    For me it has nothing to do with the sound, it's about the abundance of live WS I have. I have until the end of the month to decide.

    Hmm. Maybe I should break out some of my WS/JW records. I have so fucking many of them, lol. I actually have no recollection of what the Peel Sessions sound like - it's actually like if I have a big collection of one artist (like PJ, LZ, WS, NY, QOTSA for me), it makes me listen to them less instead of more because they all drown each other out or make me feel like I listen to them too much, going by how many of their albums I have, so I reach for the one-off artist instead, lol. I don't think I've even played the last TMR Vault I got. :pensive: That's fucking stupid. :loser:

    I think Under The Great White Northern Lights is excellent (live compilation from their 2007 Canada tour), and Jack White Live from Bonnaroo 2014 is also excellent (that's TMR Vault #22), although that one has one thing that I see as a pretty big flaw: he does a LOT of talking on that for a live album. Nearly one whole side of an LP is him just kind of babbling about nothing interesting. Jack White is amazing, but he really isn't very good with the banter at all. He gets this weird sort of fake carnival barker's voice going on. I usually LOVE stage banter... if the banter is good (like Eddie, say). JW just isn't good at it, lol. I never really say this, but the guy should just shut up and sing. Sorry Jack. :lol: But anyway, Bonnaroo is still excellent - you just might want to skip through the banter. ;)

    Roo is awesome IMO.  I think it sounds great, the set list is perfect and he was super high energy.  Plus the vault package itself is tremendous with the three colored vinyls and a great DVD.  It's my favorite vault.  

    It is weird how talkative he was at that show.  I did learn a lot about Johnny Depp though!  He was in a strange mood for sure, but clearly happy to be doing a home show.  

    McGruff - IMO, this is the vault to search out if you don't have it.  I always thought it was his best one.
