PLAY: The White Stripes, "Under Great White Northern Lights" [VIDEO]

Meg and Jack White took the Great White North for a 2007 tour that had the carnival shades of the famed 1970 Festival Express tour mounted by Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, The Band and other White Stripes forebears. "Under Great White Northern Lights" documents a band with a singular sense of musical purpose. It's a reminder of how much rock music has lost its sense of abandon, even though I'm unconvinced by Jack White's claim that his band is not fully calculated. Still, calculated or not, it's a beautiful noise from a valued rock purist. Don't just settle for the CD, catch the movie too.
