1001 7" Records You Must Own No.28 The White Stripes – Red Death At 6:14
Single sided 7” records only make a few brief appearances on this list and generally only if they’re an exclusive song not on an album. ‘Red Death At 6:14’ makes the list for a few reasons, one it was only on the Sympathetic Sounds Of Detroit compilation and two it was mail order only through Mojo magazine, and three it rocks like a SOB! Jack White is at his best here spitting out lyrics over loud as fuck guitar, showing even his non-album material of that era surpassed all his contemporaries.
