The White Stripes As 2015 marks ten years since the release of the White Stripes’ Get Behind Me Satan album and tour, Third Man Records has focused the entirety of Vault Package #23 on the album and bands’ 2005 South America tour to celebrate the anniversary. Anchoring Vault Package #23 is the double LP Under Amazonian Lights recorded live at the grand Teatro Amazonas Opera House in Manaus, Brazil on June 1st, 2005 pressed on blood red vinyl with stark black wisps. Paired with the double LP is a DVD with footage of the epic Teatro Amazonas show. The accompanying 7” single, pressed on wonderful white vinyl, features a-side “Let You Down," a solo recording done by Jack White roundabout the year 2000 whose lyrics would be repurposed into the White Stripes 2005 recording “The Nurse,” and Get Behind Me Satan instrumental outtake b-side “Ain’t No Sweeter Than Rita Blues.” The package also includes a Rob Jones-designed postcard set, death head monkey enamel pin, and a silk-screened White Stripes poster with some super-secret hidden glow in the dark graphics. The entire package is enclosed in a soft touch, telescoping box with the same devilish death head monkey graphic on the cover.
