soledad brothers Master Supertone (LP, £19.95)label: Cass Records
Originally released in a micro-edition of twenty (!) cassettes, these earliest recordings of the Soledads brim over with raw, unadulterated houserockin blues and Midwestern malaise. Songs recorded on a front porch? Check. Gunshots heard off in the distance? Check. Electric snow shovel? Check. Recorded by Jack White in 1998 at 1203 Ferdinand, he also plays piano on these recordings. Includes covers of Ike Turner's ''Rocket 88'' and Hound Dog Taylor's ''Gimme Back My Wig''. Pow to the people.
