Or something like that. As Scott noted in the comments section of Amrit’s post about Jack White playing Conan, the White Stripes have put together the $500 White Stripes Merchandise Collection. It’ll be out 12/1 in an edition of 333. It also came up in an interview Jack did in this month’s issue of Vanity Fair. In the Q&A he mentions the set as one of the things he and Meg needed to check off their lists before they could get back together:
VANITY FAIR: You’re releasing the first three White Stripes albums on vinyl, and the box set [out this month] included a record player, headphones, and other items. Why did you want to do this?
JACK WHITE: We thought we’d do a lot of things that we’d never done: a full tour of Canada, a documentary, coffee-table book, live album, a boxed set. It was one long project that took almost three years. Now that we’ve gotten a lot of that out of our system, Meg and I can get back in the studio and start fresh.
