:cry: :cry:

Neil Young has made a valiant effort to improve the sound quality of recordings. He hates the MP3 format and has, with the efforts of others, developed the Pono system that reportedly is much better.
So what does he do....He records in a can with a string his latest cd. In reality, he records in a 1947 Voice-a-matic machine....much like an old phone booth with a mic that records directly to vinyl. If you imagine Oh Brother, where Art Thou
where George was singing in the can (without improvements for the movie)....that is about what it would sound like.
When I was about 14-15 I bought a used Sears turntable with the speakers that would swing out from the turntable for $10...and I got my money's worth from that contraption (but that is another story). From the time you put the needle to the vinyl you could hear pops, cracks....the vinyl turning ...everything but what you wanted to hear actually.
That is what A Letter Home sounds like. Snap, crackle and pop goes this recording from the first to the end. To say it is distracting is an understatement. When Neil plays the harmonica...it is directly into the "can" and it is quite a bit louder than otherwise and screechy. His voice is not loud enough and is uneven at best. With no soundboard to compensate ....it is barely audible at certain parts of the sounds.
I realize this is a "concept" recording.....trying to duplicate what (maybe) Hank would have sounded like or someone from his age.....but times have passed that by. The "concept" works....the recording fails.
Please don't waste you money on this. You WILL be disappointed.
