Acoustic Recordings 1998–2016 is a compilation album by American musician and singer-songwriter Jack White, released in September 2016 via Third Man Records.

The album is composed of alternate versions of songs he originally recorded for The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and his own solo career.

The album, arranged in chronological order, features alternate versions, mixes and previously unreleased material, completely remastered. The collection also features the exclusive inclusion of the spellbinding, previously unreleased White Stripes track “City Lights”. Originally intended for the 2005 Grammy Award-winning Get Behind Me Satan, “City Lights” is the first new , worldwide commercially released White Stripes song since 2008.

“This, like (Son House’s) ‘Grinnin’ In Your Face,’ is mirror-music,” writes renowned music journalist Greil Marcus of 'City Lights' in the album’s exclusive liner notes, “the singer talking to himself, trying to tell himself the truth, which he’s going to need if he’s going to step out of his door, walk into the world, and fool himself, for just a second, that he’s ready to take it on. As you listen, it’s no surprise at all that it took most of White’s music-making life to bring the song home.”

Jack White Acoustic Recordings 1998-2016 collects 26 acoustic songs from throughout White’s wide-ranging musical career, spanning album tracks, B-sides, remixes, alternate versions, and previously unreleased  tracks. The album, arranged in chronological order, includes acoustic songs made famous by The White Stripes, beginning with 'Sugar Never Tasted So Good' (originally found on The White Stripes’ second-ever 7-inch single) and then lighting upon favourites like 'Apple Blossom' and 'I’m Bound To Pack It Up' (remixed here from the original recordings on 2000’s De Stijl), 'Hotel Yorba' and 'We’re Going To Be Friends' (from 2001’s White Blood Cells), 'You’ve Got Her In Your Pocket' and 'Well It’s True That We Love One Another' (from 2003’s GRAMMY® Award-winning Elephant), 'Forever For Her (Is Over For Me),' 'White Moon' and 'As Ugly As I Seem' (from 2005’s Get Behind Me Satan) 'Effect & Cause' (from 2007’s Icky Thump), and the Beck-produced 'Honey, We Can’t Afford To Look This Cheap,' first found on the B-side to The White Stripes’ final single, 2007’s 'Conquest.'

Also featured are 'Never Far Away' (recorded for 2003’s Cold Mountain: Music From The Miramax Motion Picture) and 'Love Is The Truth' (written and recorded for Coca-Cola’s 2006 What Goes Around campaign) as well as the Bluegrass Version of 'Top Yourself' and an acoustic mix of the epic murder ballad, 'Carolina Drama,' both written by White and Brendan Benson for The Raconteurs’ GRAMMY® Award-winning 2008 album, Consolers Of The Lonely. White’s two chart-topping solo albums, 2012’s Blunderbuss and 2014’s Lazaretto, are represented by a remarkably diverse range of material including 'Love Interruption,' 'On And On And On,' 'Blunderbuss,' 'Entitlement,' 'Want And Able,' and alternative mixes of 'Hip (Eponymous) Poor Boy,' 'Just One Drink,' 'I Guess I Should Go To Sleep,' and B-side, 'Machine Gun Silhouette.'

All 26 tracks on the album were remastered earlier in 2016 by Andrew Mendelson (The Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Kings of Leon) at Nashville, TN’s Georgetown Masters.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  City Lights, Love Is the Truth/You've Got Her in Your Pocket Medley and Carolina Drama.

This is a limited double album 2LP record set on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with an 11" booklet and digital download card, pressed in the USA.
