Video: Neil Young and Jack White Amazingly Press a Record on The Tonight Show
A meeting of the minds occurred on last night's Tonight Show as the best and brightest in rock and comedy came together for a rare summit of sorts. First, Louis C.K. and Fallon riffed about his show Louie, with a hilarious story about C.K. taking his boat out into a channel that almost ended in disaster. If you're like me, you could listen to the comedian talk forever.
This version of The Tonight Show wasn't about silly games of Freestylin' with The Roots (although that is the best) but rather about showcasing one of the most unique recording processes around right now--Jack White's Voice-o-Graph recording booth. After a brief interview where he reminisced with the host about his spot-on impression, Neil Young stepped into the booth (where he crafted his entire A Letter Home album) and delivered a version of Willie Nelson's "Crazy" in one take.
After the performance, they busted out the turntable and threw down the hot wax fresh off the press from the Third Man Records booth.
Watch a replay of nearly the whole show from last night including Young's performance inside the Voice-o-Graph as well as a bonus performance of "Since I Met You Baby." You can also check out Young and White sitting down with Fallon as well as Jack explaining what in the hell the Voice-o-Graph actually is.
