In addition, LIVE AT ELECTRIC LADY features a special introduction from famed filmmaker Jim Jarmusch as well as an electrifying bonus studio version of Richard Hell and the Voidoids’ seminal “Blank Generation,” recorded that day.

Highlights include Jarmusch’s exclusive interview with The Raconteurs as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of “Blank Generation,” featuring a special visit from original Voidoids guitarist Ivan Julian explaining the song’s instantly identifiable guitar hook to the band.
“I’ve always loved that guitar part and never really sat down and exactly figured out what he’s doing,” says Jack White. “How amazing for Ivan to show up and show us how to do it.”
As if all that weren’t enough, LIVE AT ELECTRIC LADY is accompanied by a full-length one-hour documentary, streaming now via YouTube.
