White Stripes, The
Greatest HitsThird Man
***The first-ever official anthology of recordings from the iconic rock duo, JACK and MEG WHITE, is an essential career-spanning collection highlighting 26 previously released songs. From late Nineties flashes of brilliance through early 2000s underground anthems, masterful MTV Moon Man moments, Grammy-grabbing greatness, and worldwide stadium chants, the songs here are as wide-ranging as you can imagine. In an era of streaming where the idea of a “Greatest Hits” album may seem irrelevant—that an act’s most streamed songs are considered their de facto “hits”—we wholeheartedly believe that great bands deserve “Greatest Hits” and that a large part of Third Man Records’ and THE WHITE STRIPES' successes have been built on zigging when the rest of the music business is zagging. Thus, for a great band with great fans, a greatest hits compilation for The White Stripes is not only appropriate, but absolutely necessary.
