A Letter Home

A Letter Home by Neil Young
Released: May 2014
Label: Reprise
Recorded in Nashville, inside Jack White's vintage Voice-O-Graph booth, A Letter Home is a scratchy collection of covers meant to sound like a lost relic. Outside of White's backing vocals and keys on "I Wonder If I Care As Much" and "On The Road Again," Young employs just voice and acoustic guitar. The tunes span time, from Bruce Springsteen's "My Hometown" to the Ivory Joe Hunter classic "Since I Met You Baby." Young's renditions (straightforward country-folk, basically) aren't radical. That said, the addition of whistling solos to Bert Jansch's dour "Needle of Death" is rather perverse.
