First up for my White Stripes’-themed Vinyl Sunday is their self-titled debut album, which I’ve had for about a month now, but never got around to posting.
As I had mentioned back in September, I didn’t discover the White Stripes for myself until becoming a fan from Elephant many years later, and then working my way backwards through their catalog, so for me this was really the last album of theirs for me to discover. It’s much more “raw” sounding than their later releases, the songs are more short & simple, and yet heavy and powerful at the same time. It contains a one of my all-time favorite songs to go “air-guitar crazy” with, "Wasting My Time" (which I’ve posted many times previously), and one of my all-time favorite Dylan covers ("One More Cup Of Coffee").
By the way, this White Stripes’ Vinyl Sunday will only be for the albums in my collection that I haven’t already posted about previously [I’ve posted White Blood Cells back in September, when I first began collecting vinyl again, and then the Hand Springs/Red Death at 6:14 45-single a couple months back for Record Store Day.]
