Jack White Reissuing Debut Album From Early Band


Before the White Stripes hit it big, Jack White played lead guitar in a Detroit garage punk act called The Go, appearing on the group's 1999 debut LP Whatcha Doin'. To celebrate the album's 20th anniversary, White has now remixed the disc and is reissuing through his own Third Man Records as part of the label's Vault subscription series.

White remixed the album using the original reel-to-reel tapes and, according to a press release, "the créme de la créme of studio gear unavailable to the band back in 1999" to effectively "crank the album into overdrive."

The limited edition deluxe package contains a "Summer Sun" colored vinyl pressing of Whatcha Doin', along with vinyl pressings of the previously unreleased Ferdinand Attic Demos LP and the Alternate Studio Takes seven-inch. Also included is a collectible photo book titled The Go In Black And White.

Fans can sign up for the Vault series from now through July 31st to purchase the set. White and his band The Raconteurs released their first album in 11 years, Help Us Stranger, two weeks ago.
