With a little help from Jack White, Neil Young made history last night (May 12) on The Tonight Show by recording a song straight to vinyl.
Neil Young has offered up the first taste from his upcoming album, A Letter Home, which will be released on Jack White’s label, Third Man Records. His cover of Burt Jansch’s “Needle of Death” was recorded in Third Man’s “record booth,” a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Gram machine that cuts songs directly to vinyl.
According to one blog, the duo have already recorded covers of a few folk classics.
Jack White, 38, now has his own tribute album performed by legendary artists who influenced him.
