20th Anniversary 180-gram vinyl reissue!

Mastered directly from the original 1/4-inch master tapes

Deluxe old-style, tip-on jacket from Stoughton Printing

For their breakthrough third album, The White Stripes' Jack and Meg decamped to Memphis to record at the legendary Easley-McCain Studio and walked away with a bonafide classic. Unique for a White Stripes album, as it contains no covers, no guest musicians, no blues and no guitar solos, White Blood Cells would be most of the world's introduction to the band.

While the video for "Fell In Love With A Girl" could've single-handedly raised the price of LEGO stock the other jams on here are momentous, from the fuzz distorted clarion call of album opener "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground" to the finger-pointing accusations of "I Think I Smell A Rat" this album has everything you could ever want from the Detroit duo. In 2012, Rolling Stone ranked the album at No. 497 on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Cut directly from the original 1/4-inch master tapes, pressed on heavy 180-gram vinyl and lovingly ensconced in a beauteous Stoughton tip-on jacket...this album has never looked better.

This is my first pressing by Third Man and will not be my last. Quiet pressing and great mastering job.
