Neil Young Voice-O-Graph Craziness
Neil Young and Jack White teamed up for a bit of show-and-tell on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" May 12, 2014, demonstrating to the host and viewers the method by which they made Young's new album, "A Letter Home."
Young said he was already thinking about doing an album of songs that were part of his "musical roots" when White showed him the Voice-O-Graph machine.
Young released the 11-track "A Letter Home" -- which includes songs by Willie Nelson, Tim Hardin, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Bert Jansch, Gordon Lightfoot and others, along with two aural "letters" to his late mother -- on vinyl for Record Store Day; a special box set edition was released May 27, 2014 containing both vinyl and CD copies of the album, seven vinyl singles, a DVD documentary about making the album and more.
