Published Jun 11, 2010On Wednesday (June 9), the Net got all a-fluster when a video (visible below) popped up online of White Stripes/Dead Weather front-man Jack White posting a flyer advertising that Conan O'Brien would be doing something mysterious at White's Third Man Records the following evening. As it turns out, the duo merely jammed out a couple of cover tunes, but as they revealed at the show, the jam will soon be pressed on some extremely limited-edition vinyl.
As Consequence of Sound reports, the gig's setlist consisted of cover versions of "Rock This Town," "On The Road Again," "Creep" and the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army." An encore included Eddie Cochran's "20 Flight Rock" and Ronnie Hawkins's "Forty Days."
Then, as Conan told the lucky audience, "Six months ago, I was the host of The Tonight Show, the greatest franchise in the history of television. Then I started a live tour, going from small theatre to small theatre. And tonight I'm pressing a vinyl recording. I'm going back in time! Next week I'll be on vaudeville. Then I'll be a steamship captain."
So, yes, the show will hit vinyl, although it's been reported that only those who pre-ordered it at the show will acquire a copy. Whether or not the general public will get a crack at it looks, at this time, uncertain. In the meantime, keep an eye out for very expensive Conan/Jack White vinyl on eBay.
Again, that mysterious ad for the show is below.
