Neil Young and Jack White both appeared on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" for a rather special demonstration for the viewers and the host.

Young, as part of his performance, recorded a cover of Willie Nelson's "Crazy" straight to vinyl and distributed the final product at the end of the show.

This was, in fact, one of the most extraordinary moments in the history of television and music.

Young’s new album, "A Letter Home" has been created on a unique Voice-O-Graph vinyl-recording booth from White's Third Man Recordsbased in Nashville.

The machine was brought on the “Tonight Show” for the promotion of Young’s upcoming album.

White shocked Fallon and the audience when he revealed that he had spent a whole decade looking for the vinyl booth and after he found it he spent a year and a half renovating it.

The news of the special performance had been tweeted by a few just hours before the live taping of his show.

He announced that the episode on Monday “would make history.”

"Neil Young is going to perform and press a vinyl with the help of Jack White live on the show. One take. Fun," Fallon wrote and then posted a photo of the final product.
