Neil Young and Jack White Record Vinyl Record Live on 'The Tonight Show' — Video

Last night on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Neil Young and Jack White demonstrated the method they used to record Young's new album of covers, A Letter Home.

During the show, Young entered the 1947 Voice-O-Graph vinyl recording booth that White and his crew had brought up from White's Third Man Studios in Nashville. With a camera showing the cramped space inside the booth, Young recorded a version of Willie Nelson's "Crazy" in one take.

During the remainder of the show, White pressed the song into a 7-inch vinyl single. In fact, the show ended with Young, White, Fallon and guest Louis C.K. listening to the playback of the single.
