Album of the Day
The White Stripes supported the release of their final studio album in 2007 with a tour across Canada documented three years later on UNDER GREAT WHITE NORTHERN LIGHTS. The duo's first concert collection was drawn from an ambitious itinerary that visited every Canadian province and included several surprise gigs, and the thrill and spontaneity of these shows can be heard throughout these 16 tracks. Along with a few songs from the then-current ICKY THUMP, Meg and Jack White deliver ferocious versions of such favorites as “Fell in Love with a Girl” and “Seven Nation Army” as well as a couple of inspired covers (like Dolly Parton's “Jolene”). A look at one of alt-rock's most exciting live performers, UNDER GREAT WHITE NORTHERN LIGHTS just missed the Billboard Top 10 and we'll give it another spin now to wish Meg White a happy birthday.
