Jack White On Charlie Rose

Jack White is a pretty good interview, and Charlie Rose is a pretty good interviewer, and last week, White appeared on Rose’s show to talk about his work putting together the box set The Rise And Fall Of Paramount Records 1917-1932, Volume 1 — a lavish and painstakingly curated set containing 800 early blues songs from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Jelly Roll Morton and Ethel Waters, among many, many others. White’s so obviously passionate about this stuff, and it’s a pleasure to listen to him talk about it with Rose. Check it out.

  1. Jack needs to listen to some sea shanties and slave hymns/negro spirituals before making some of those statements about the blues. I really dig the guy, but I was surprised how off he was with some of those comments. Also, “maybe I was always solo”? Well, that’s an odd thing to say.

      • Same ol’ passive aggressive Stereogum, believing that a down vote actually holds any kind of intrinsic value, so it must be a better way to respond than actually using, you know, WORDS!
