Jack White‘s Third Man Records is reissuing the 1998 debut album from Detroit garage rockers The Hentchmen, which featured a young Jack White on bass. The extended reissue of the LP, titled Hentch-Forth, features the album’s nine original tracks, in addition to three extra cuts. Among the bonus tracks are the single “Some Other Guy,” which features White on guitar.

  • White guested on just the one Hentchmen LP, which pre-dated his success with the White Stripes.
  • The “Some Other Guy” single was recorded and released at the same time as the White Stripes’ debut single, “Let’s Shake Hands.”
  • Third Man issued a limited colored edition of the LP last month. The disc is just one of seven different records that Third Man is reissuing, all of them originally released on Detroit’s Italy Records.
  • White is currently putting the finishing touches on his third solo album, which will follow up 2014’s Lazaretto.
