MUSIC NEWS- Neil Young will release a CD, digital album and a Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set of his recent vinyl album A Letter Home on Reprise Records on May 27. The box set is a beautifully packaged expanded version of the vinyl edition first released on February 21by Jack White's Third Man Records.
The Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set will also contain a Download card for the hi-res Audiophile version of the album.
Young recorded the collection of covers with White on a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth at Third Man's Nashville headquarters. Think of a very simple recording studio not much larger than a phone booth and you'll get the idea. Young described the album as "an unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro-mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever." Recorded live to track to one-track, mono, the album has an inherent warm, primitive feel of a vintage Folkways recording.
