Jimmy Fallon has a history

of impersonating Neil Young, but no bit could compare to the real thing.

On Monday's "The Tonight Show," Young used musician Jack White's refurbished Voice-o-Graph recording booth to perform a cover of "Crazy," that was recorded and cut straight to vinyl.

The performance was inspired by the process Young went through to record "Letters to Home," an album of cover songs Young recorded in the booth. The deluxe box set is available May 27.

"I spent a year and a half restoring that record booth," White said. "I had looked for 10 years for one."

"I said to Jack, 'I could do an album in there,"' Young said.

Young also recorded a cover of "Since I Met You Baby," for a web exclusive, which can be seen
