One of the best sounding pressings ive ever heard, fantastic.


December 25, 2017
Is any one else experiencing distorted vocals on this release???


November 7, 2017
Just listened to the TMR 498 (The Red Demos) and it's fabulous!

Regarding the Icky Thump LP itself, the quality of this 2017 remaster is good, but the 2007 Steve Hoffman master is a national treasure. The quality of the pressing by Third Man Pressing is good, and it is great to see Jack White moving on from the horrific United Record Pressing. Meg's vocals are missing from Rag and Bone, which is really weird. According to Third Man Records, this was remastered from the original analog tapes. Maybe they added Meg's vocals digitally to the original album after it was recorded. Who knows...

The extras are good. Despite the fact that the extras were pressed by United, the quality of my copy was good. Not sure if the extras themselves are worth $60, but there is good stuff there.

Listening to the LP for the first time now. No Meg on Rag & Bone is bullshit. Not sure I can abide that. The extra records are gonna have to be pretty amazing for me not to sell it.


October 6, 2017
Got anybody else the Demos and the extras LP twice?


September 28, 2017
Quite amazed how many people bought this just to immediately re-sell for profit. At least enjoy it for a bit first! I just hope everyone who wanted it already purchased via the vault. I do also partially blame the people willing to buy this stuff at stupid prices. Sorry mini rant over.

My favorite Vault package for a while !
Nice job from Third Man.


September 26, 2017
Has anybody managed to successfully remove the seal without cutting/damaging it?


September 26, 2017
The 2007 Steve Hoffman cut is vastly superior. This isn't bad by any stretch, but don't expect it to even come close to the perfection that was the original pressing. Great package otherwise, though.
