Rare Jack White cover of Blondie unearthed
This is history... and Third Man Records co-founder and White Stripes archivist Ben Blackwell just unearthed a Jack White rarity. It's a cover of a Blondie track.
Indeed, in the late ’90s (according to an essay Blackwell wrote for Discogs), White worked as a session engineer for a band called 400 Pounds of Punk which was recording a cassette titled "He Once Ate a Small Child". Blackwell found the cassette in his basement recently and he writes that its “release was completely undocumented” until now.
Included on the tape is a cover of Blondie’s “One Way or Another,” featuring vocals from Jack White. In his essay, Blackwell calls the track “the rarest physical release of a Jack White performance.”
