White Stripes July 11, 2007 Prince Edward Island – Lossless Download

July 15, 2007

NYCTaper became PEITaper for a night when my annual vacation trip to Prince Edward Island crisscrossed with the White Stripes tour across Canada. Charlottetown is a beautiful old city on the water, and its quaint Civic Centre provided a uniquely intimate setting to experience Jack and Meg on tour. The White Stripes large stage set-up and the layout of the small hockey arena only allowed for about 1200 people in the facility.

I was seated in the first row of the stands, 3 seats from the front, directly in line and only 20 feet from the left PA speaker stack. As a result, the recording is quite clear and upfront. Additionally, the hockey boards provided a buffer from much of the noise of the crowd from the floor.

As you’ll hear in the recording offered for download below, the White Stripes used the intimate setting to perform a nice varied setlist and a high energy show–such that Charlottetown may be the best show of the entire Canadian tour.

This recording is no longer available due to Mr. White’s new strict anti-taping and anti-sharing policy.

    Hi Dan,
    I was waiting long time for your Stripes’ recording. It sounds perfect, never heard anything else better made from audience. Can’t wait to hear your next recordings.

    Well, well, The ‘Stripes play Charlottetown. 20 years ago the most rocking thing in town was Matt Minglewood at Myrons, and maybe Haywire at The Barn. I’m sorry I wasn’t there, many thanks for this recording. I must get back to the Island soon.

    This is probably one of my favourite downloads this year, torrent or otherwise, bar none. Awesome recording, thank you for going through all the trouble, just so we can sit here and right click, “Save File As”…
