It was reassuring to witness late night television serve as the validation of the Neil Young and Jack White collaboration that I have been very intent upon owning. Jimmy Fallon is devout a fan of music box sets. He has previously hosted a week long series of shows that highlighted the The Rolling Stones, Exile on Main Street collector’s box set (which I also own). Last night he honored the Neil Young/Jack White collaboration, A Letter Home a forthcoming limited edition box set (May 27th).
The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon arranged for delivery and setup of Jack White’s 1947 Voice-O-Graph vinyl recording booth on the NBC Tonight Show stage in New York City. This was a magnanimous gesture that allowed a large viewing and studio audience to witness Neil Young record the hit by Patsy Cline, “Crazy”, a song written by Willie Nelson inside that booth.
