Third Man Records unearths Neil Young's 'A Letter Home'. The album features Young chose songs that have personal meaning for him, such as British folk artist Bert Jansch's 'Needle of Death' (which inspired Young to write 1972's 'Needle and the Damage Done'), Bob Dylan's 'Girl from the North Country,' Willie Nelson's 'Crazy,' Don Everly's 'I Wonder If I Care as Much,' Bruce Springsteen's 'My Home Town,' and many others. It was recorded at Third Man Records on a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth. Imagine a very simple recording studio not much larger than a phone booth and you'll get the idea. Recorded live to track to one-track, mono, the album has an inherent warm, primitive feel of a vintage Folkways recording.
