Get In The Booth

In case you missed it last night, Neil Young and Jack White were on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. They actually recorded and pressed a vinyl in real time. White found a Voice- O- Graph booth from 1947 after a long search and restoration. The Voice-O-Graph debuted on record store day last year at Third Man Records. Young happened to be there and approached White about cutting an entire album in the booth, which was the result of A Letter Home, Young’s LP of covers due out May 27th.  Here’s Jack and Neil explaining it. It make sense, let’s hope it’s actually as amazing as the packaging for this album. In theory this should be mind blowing. Right piece of equipment for this album…..

Let’s hope this collaboration is as good as Jake White’s with Loretta Lynn.
