I’m sure we’ve all heard the crazy “news” stories involving Jack White, for example his tour rider with accompanying guacamole recipe — but here at the GATRS, we don’t care about that, we care about the music.
Last November, Jack White released the Lazaretto track for Would You Fight For My Love as a 7-inch with a B-Side cover of Dean Fertita’s Parallel and now Third Man Records (his own record label) will do the same thing with That Black Bat Licorice and Blue Light, Red Light (Someone’s There). It will be re-released as a 7-inch single that includes the Harry Connick, Jr. cover as a B-Side.
The song was originally released in 1991 and was the leading track on Connick, Jr.’s album Blue Light. Though the original recording is distinctly jazzy for the early ’90s, Jack puts his classic spin on it making it bigger with an enormous sound that you want to blast through the speakers. It sounds as if it would be perfect for Broadway, that bass and the horns… Can’t get enough of it.
