The White Stripes have released recordings of their first ever live performances.

The vinyl releases are only available through The Vault, a quarterly subscription series from Jack White's Third Man Records. The latest Vault package includes the 'Live At The Gold Dollar' seven-inch single, a recording from an open mic night on July 14, 1997 that was the duo's first ever performance.

The single, pressed on red vinyl, includes a version of 'Jimmy The Exploder', a song that would later appear on the band's self-titled debut album, as well as a cover of 'Love Potion #9' and a rendition of a traditional number called 'St James Infirmary Blues'.

Packaged with the single is a white vinyl 12-inch, also titled 'Live At The Gold Dollar'. It features three tracks recorded at the band's first ever full concert, which took place at the same venue on August 14, 1997. It includes live versions of early Stripes favourites 'Lafayette Blues' and 'Screwdriver', as well as a cover of 'TV Eye' by The Stooges.

Rounding off the package is an exclusive black tote bag emblazoned with the band's iconic peppermint logo. The deadline to sign up to The Vault in order to receive The White Stripes' live recordings is July 31.
