1. Sugar and Spice
2. Johnnys Death Letter
Out of the ashes of Toledos Henry and June arose the mighty Soledad Brothers. This recording is the Soledad Brothers doing what they did best - houserockin blues in full Midwestern malaise. This single was recorded in 1998 at Jack Whites house on Ferdinand Street in southwest Detroit and was the bands debut release. As key players in a scene of like-minded minimalist garage groups, vocalist, guitarist and master of harmonica Johnny Walker and drummer/future Third Man Records co-founder Ben Swank, were playing shows in Detroit so often, it eventually just made sense for Ben to pay Jack rent and become his roommate. This single features Jack playing a metal snow shovel on the B-side, Johnnys Death Letter.
