Description
Neil Young made these acoustic covers of songs that mean a lot to him at Jack White's Nashville music shop, using a 1940s Voice-O-Graph recording booth. Many of them come from the flowering of the folk and protest era (e.g., Bob Dylan's "Girl From the North Country," Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain," and Phil Ochs's "Changes"), while Bert Jansch's harrowing "Needle of Death" was the inspiration for Young's own "The Needle and the Damage Done."

"For an album recorded primitively inside a Nashville box, there are some stunning performances."—Pitchfork

"It's a flinty, raw and ravaged recording, like some audio equivalent of a message in a bottle long ago tossed into the sea…. It lends the disc an arcane charm."—NY Daily News

"One of the most enjoyable records Young has made this century…. Young's bare renditions—just his voice and an unplugged guitar or harmonica on most songs—have an unrehearsed sincerity that's easy to imagine getting lost in a better studio…. Plays like a crackly field recording from a lost world."—Rolling Stone
