Video: Watch Neil Young Record ‘Needle Of Death’ in Jack White’s 1947 Voice-o-Graph Machine

Neil Young recording “Needle Of Death.”

Last year Neil Young went down to Nashville and recorded the Bert Jansch song “Needle of Death” at Jack White’s Third Man Records in the 1947 Voice-o-Graph machine.

Apparently Young recorded the song for the Celebration of Bert Jansch at The Royal Festival Hall on December 3, 2013. The video of Young cutting the track was shown at the event.

The video was online briefly, then pulled.

Now it’s back. Watch it while you can.

And here’s a version of the song from Jan. 6, 2014, Carnegie Hall:
