Neil Young surprises everyone by releasing a new album on vinyl only called ‘A Letter Home’ this past weekend. The new album turned up during Saturday’s celebration of ‘Record Store Day’.
The album, “A Letter Home,” features 11 tracks, recorded in a refurbished 1947 Voice-o-Graph vinyl booth at the Nashville record store owned by Jack White, who’s credited as the disc’s co-producer.
By design, it sounds like an artifact from the age of 78s. It’s a flinty, raw and ravaged recording, like some audio equivalent of a message in a bottle long ago tossed into the sea.(Read the rest on New York Daily News)
