The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely (2008)

Consolers of the Lonely is the second album of The Raconteurs. It was released on March 25, 2008 on Warner Bros. Records in most parts of the world, and a day earlier on XL Recordings in the UK. The band premiered "Five on the Five" during their last tour. Consolers of the Lonely consists of recordings undertaken after The White Stripes' Icky Thump tour, which means the sessions that the band did in May 2007 before the Icky Thump tour weren't used. The title of the record comes from the inscription in the side of a Washington, D.C. post office written by Charles William Eliot, which reads in full: "Messenger of sympathy and love, servant of parted friends, consoler of the lonely, bond of the scattered family, enlarger of the common life." - Wikipedia
