The second single off Jack White’s debut solo album Blunderbuss. Debuted on Saturday Night Live and worlds apart from the first single “Love Interruption,” the rock and roll power of “ Sixteen Saltines” is all the evidence needed to show that White’s solo work will be as varied as it is accomplished. Coupled with White’s stinging cover of U2’s “Love is Blindness” (from Achtung Baby) and the record metaphorically jumps off turntable.
The 12" single of Jack White’s “Sixteen Saltines” comes complete with a playable etching on the b-side (designed by George Ingram), a cover of U2’s “Love is Blindness.” Truly a sight to behold, the etching depicts Third Man’s iconic logo and the grooves of the record play through the image, presenting consumers with the world’s first-ever playable etched record (this is an entirely different process than your Split Enz and Styx records from 1980, this visual is all vinyl).
