“Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016” is a collection of different arrangements of songs from singer/songwriter Jack White’s career. Released on September 9, the 26 song album consists of all acoustic versions of some of his most popular hits over the years.

Jack White, a musician originating from Detroit, has had a very successful musical career. Throughout his career, he has been in various bands. Jack White’s most famous band was the “The White Stripes” that he started with drummer Meg White. Formed in Detroit in the late nineties, the band did something unique by mixing different musical genres together. “The White Stripes” biggest hits over the years were “Seven Nation Army,” “Fell In Love With A Girl,” and “Icky Thump.” After the “The White Stripes,” Jack White started different bands “The Raconteurs” and “The Dead Weather.” In 2012, Jack White released his first solo album “Blunderbuss,” which received high praise from both fans and critics alike.

“Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016” contains 26 songs that Jack White performs all with an acoustic guitar. Most of the songs are from his work with “The White Stripes” and he includes a few songs from his solo career as well. They even decided to add some songs from “The White Stripes” that were already acoustic like “Hotel Yorba,” “You’ve Got Her In Your Pocket,” and one of my personal favorite songs of all time, “We’re Going To Be Friends.” Overall, I give this album a positive review. It is pretty interesting to listen to acoustic versions of songs from his career.
