Jack White: music's most prolific man?
By windy miller 1121
I agree with Barnaby S. I'm a real big fan of Jack White and the White Stripes, and would probably listen to anything that he hade some level of involvement in. This is a really good track and you get a sense that this is the music that White really enjoys playing and listening to. However it does sound awfully similar to other bluesy efforts that he's put out. Still, more than worth the 79p
This song is pure genius for being wrote on the spot... it is like some of the older white stripes blues songs (which i love) but alot purer. I waited until my vinyl copy came to here it but after you listen to it once or twice you just cant get it out of your head. Keep up the good work Jack!
Good but not new...

It's hard for me to rip JW down, but at the same time this isn't hugely different from more bluesy White Stripes tracks. In fact it sounds like its using the same ryhthm guitar from "Ball and Biscuit". It is still a really good track, but I'm likely to throw it in with my White Stripes collection. If I need different Jack White styles I'm happy with the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather. If he were to release a full solo album then it would have to be distinctly different in its blues style rather than just recycling older chord patterns.
White back where he started

Contrary to what one of my fellow reviewers has said, 'Fly Farm Blues' sees Jack venture back to his early White Stripes roots. So muchso in fact that you could slot this track in anywhere on 'The White Stripes' or 'De Stijl' and you would never know. Top stuff, but then you come to expect that from Jack.
a long road from the white stripes.
not much in common with the white stripes but Whites style is remminicent of certain racontours songs and of "Will there be enough water" by the dead weather...it is rough edged but true blues is visible and it is oddly reminicent of Son House...well worth buying for a jack white fan but more for a fan of blues.
