New Video Release: The Raconteurs – Live at Montreux 2008

We’ve never hid our appreciation of The Raconteurs during the early years of this blog when the band was in the midst of putting out two sensational studio albums while touring regularly. The last few years have been light on action for the Jack White / Brendan Benson / Jack Lawrence / Patrick Keeler project with a set of shows late in 2011 serving as their only live shows since 2008.

Up until now The Raconteurs haven’t released any live recordings, a damn shame considering just how good the quartet are in concert. That will change on June 18 when Eagle Rock Entertainment ships Live at Montreux 2008 on DVD and Blu-Ray.

The tracklist for Live at Montreux 2008 contains 10 of the 14 songs from The Raconteurs’ new LP at the time, Consolers of the Lonely, and five of the 10 tunes on 2006′s Broken Boy Soldiers, along with a cover of Charley Jordan’s Keep It Clean. All in all only nine of the 24 tracks that make up the group’s studio output are missing from the concert film.

Live at Montreux 2008 Tracklist:

01. Consoler of the Lonely
02. Hold Up
03. You Don’t Understand Me
04. Top Yourself
05. Old Enough
06. Keep it Clean
07. Intimate Secretary
08. Level
09. Steady, As She Goes
10. The Switch and the Spur
11. Rich Kid Blues
12. Blue Veins
13. Many Shades of Black
14. Broken Boy Soldier
15. Salute Your Solution
16. Carolina Drama

We can only hope this release signals that The Raconteurs aren’t done yet.
