The White Stripes

It’s a loving holiday, and so I would like to share some audiolove. I enjoy The White Stripes‘ amazing covers during their live shows and on b-sides. I’ve culled my three favorites for your downloading pleasure.

Bob Dylan’s Isis

Son House’s Death Letter

and the tremendous, not-to-be-missed Dolly Parton’s Jolene

If you’re not done geeking out, you can stream a live 2007 Jack and Meg show at NPR. Also, it’s interesting to hear somewhat screechier and sparse versions of songs you know and love from earlier years. Download live songs from a 1998 show, including a cover of Dylan’s One More Cup of Coffee or download live songs from a 1999 show from WDET, Detroit public radio.
