Sense Of Place Detroit: From The Archives The Debut of The Raconteurs from 2006

October 21, 2013 - For our Sense of Place Detroit we go back to 2006 for our first visit with a new band that people already had expectations of because one member was Jack White of The White Stripes and the other songwriter was Brendan Benson.
They joined together with the rhythm section of Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keelor from the Greenhornes. It was the first appearance of this “supergroup” and a lot of the conversation is about collaboration. We also hear a pretty cool version of “Steady As She Goes.”
