The 30th Vault package marks yet another milestone for Third Man with two full LPs featured in a single Vault release for the first time ever. LIVE AT DISGRACELAND - FROM ANTHONY BOURDAIN: PARTS UNKNOWN collects the incredible live music featured in the recently aired Nashville installment of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning CNN Original Series, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. World renowned chef and best-selling author Anthony Bourdain's Music City adventure was highlighted by a raging houseparty at The Dead Weather singer Alison Mosshart's Nashville home, a.k.a. "Disgraceland," featuring electric living room live performances from Third Man recording group The Dead Weather, as well as TMR friends The Kills and William Tyler. LIVE AT DISGRACELAND - FROM ANTHONY BOURDAIN: PARTS UNKNOWN collects all three sets from this once-in-a-lifetime event, including a fiery rendition of "Hang You From The Heavens," originally found on The Dead Weather's 2009 debut single as well the band's breakthrough debut album, HOREHOUND. The LIVE AT DISGRACELAND performance marks The Dead Weather's only full live set in more than six years and first public appearance since heralding 2015's acclaimed DODGE AND BURN with an electrifying appearance on CBS' Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Third Man Records Vault Package #30 also includes THE RACONTEURS - LIVE AT IRVING PLAZA NYC APRIL 7TH 2006, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the band's North American live debut with a complete concert document of that momentous event. The LP - which boasts cover art inspired by the original concert poster by long time TMR visual collaborator Rob Jones - reveals a remarkably powerful new band just discovering the breadth of their powers as well as a set of songs which would soon prove indelible rock 'n' roll classics including "Steady, As She Goes," "Broken Boy Soldier," and "Hands," not to mention stellar covers of Love's "A House Is Not A Motel" and The Flamin' Groovies' "Headin' For The Texas Border" (tracklisting below).
As if all that weren't enough, Third Man Records Vault Package #30 also features an extremely limited 7" single collecting two haunting Jack White compositions found on JACK WHITE ACOUSTIC RECORDINGS: 1998-2016. "Love Is The Truth (Acoustic Mix)" b/w "City Lights (Previously Unreleased White Stripes Track)" is paired on blue and red splatter vinyl, packaged in a heavy paper stock sleeve.

Live at Disgraceland: From Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown LP
Anthony Bourdain and his team descended on Nashville hungry for culture and knowledge (as well as hot chicken, tasting plates, and tequila); they visited every nook and cranny of this town, hung with the locals, ate like czars, partied like rock stars, and woke up every morning fresh as daisies and ready to do it again. Parts Unknown does not come to your city in order to present a slide show of tourist spots and magazine cover spreads. Bourdain wants to understand what makes a city tick. He has a knack for getting down to the marrow of how a town's denizens think and live, why they do what they do in their community, and how that relates to the country at large in this time and place, Earth 2016. This is a man after our own heart and we were so happy to welcome him into our world for a few, too-short days. Their time here culminated with a rager of a party at Disgraceland (location... unknown) where The Dead Weather, The Kills and William Tyler all played jaw dropping electric live sets, living room style, to a house full of well-fed, newly tattooed, appreciative friends. Wish you could have been there? Wish granted: we present the night's musical entertainment in full for your listening pleasure...
