Rock Icon Neil Young Records ‘Retro’ Album, Includes The Great Patsy Cline Classic ‘Crazy’

Make no mistake about it, Neil Young is NOT a Classic Country legend.  Oh, he’s a legend alright, both as a solo artist and as a member of the iconic Rock groups Buffalo Springfield and of course Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

Now, with that being said, I’ve always liked the music of Neil Young, particularly his solo stuff.  I would offer that Neil Young’s ‘Harvest’ album from the 1970’s is one of my Top Ten favorite albums of all time.  Listen to songs like ‘Old Man’ and ‘Heart Of Gold’…it might not be country, but it sure isn’t a long way off either.

Now Neil is releasing a ‘retro’ album.  The Associated Press has the details.

(AP) – Neil Young is releasing an album he made in a retro recording booth at Jack White’s Third Man Records label.

“A Letter Home” is an album of covers done on a refurbished 1947 Voice-O-Graph recording booth. Among the songs he covers are Bruce Springsteen’s “My Hometown,” Bob Dylan’s “Girl From The North Country,” and Willie Nelson’s “Crazy.” Young also reads a letter to his late mother on the album.

“A Letter Home” comes out May 27.

I don’t know about you, but I’m anxious to hear Neil’s take on the Willie Nelson penned Patsy Cline classic ‘Crazy’.
