Jack White‘s Third Man Records have announced that the White Stripes‘ final concert from 2007 will soon be released as a live album titled Live in Mississippi. The double vinyl set will feature the band’s full set in Southhaven, Mississippi on July 31st, 2007. There doesn’t seem to be any plan to release the album as a CD or digital download.
Though the final White Stripes show included selections from all six of their albums, the set was rather light on singles and excluded many of their best-known hits. Instead, the band was inspired to play a number of Mississippi blues songs by Robert Johnson, Son House and Leadbelly.
In addition to the live LP, the defunct duo will also be releasing a new seven-inch album featuring covers of Love‘s “Signed DC” and Otis Redding‘s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” and a DVD titled Under Moorhead Lights All Fargo Night, which will feature the band’s set at Ralph’s Corner Bar in Moorhead, Minnesota on June 13th, 2000.
