You took a white orchid turned it blue (The White Stripes) #550

The White Stripes Blue Orchid/ Though I Hear You Calling, I Will Not Answer  (Third Man Records, 2005)

I'm a relative late comer to the charms of Jack White - although I have a vinyl copy of Elephant, it's his solo albums and work The Raconteurs that I'm most fond of.

Having said that, Blue Orchid is a great riffola exercise that is perfectly complemented by wife Meg's crushing drum pounds and cymbal crashes.

Hidden gem: The blues are alive and well and living inside Jack and Meg White! 

Great B side - straight from the delta and not part of the Get Behind Me Satan album.

Gets extra gem status because of the raw record skips!
