I just found a live, soundboard recording of
JACK WHITE (JACK AND THE BRICKS) - The Gold Dollar Detroit, MI - SEP 16, 1999
I think this may have gotten a vault release at some point, but I found it through a service called Nugs.
It opens with Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground, which opens with Brendan Benson on vocals. Jack takes over pretty quickly, but it's still a really neat moment.
I really need to get a digital in on my home stereo.
(the show is available for sale here: https://www.nugs.net/live-download-of-jack-white-the-gold-dollar-detroit-mi-09-16-1999-mp3-flac-or-online-music-streaming/26109.html?cgid=ARTIST-1209)
I've heard other shows of his from this era, and earlier, that are Better in terms of performance, but this set list (and the inclusion of Brendan Benson in the band) is hard to beat.
@ajroach42 I got the vinyl re-issue of a 2-star Tabernacle Thirdman put out a few years ago. Just makes me miss Blanche even more.
