The Very Best of the White Stripes

Shortly after the release of 2007’s Icky Thump, I was looking at The White Stripes catalog in iTunes and realized that it was primed for a homemade “greatest hits” mixtape. Getting the perfect track order on these sort of mixes can be tricky (if you care about that kind of thing, which clearly I do). But in this case the simplest approach worked best. The tracklist is in chronological order by album, starting with 2000’s De Stijl, and then the tracks are ordered within each album by their track number. This is similar to how EMI compiled the U.S. version of the 2002 Best of Bowie collection. The end result, The Very Best of The White Stripes, one badass album that encompasses the best of the group’s work and presents it in a way that gives a good look at the evolution of their sound and songwriting.  Enjoy.
