Long Lost 1970s Neil Young Album Rumored For Release

Hitchhiker, a long-lost Neil Young album originally recorded in 1976, is reportedly coming out this summer. Stereogum reports that Neil Young fan website Thrasher's Wheat found a listing on the website of U.K. retailer Diverse Vinyl that says the album will be available on July 14, and they also recently discovered what appears to be the cover art designed by Young's longtime art director Gary Burden.

At press time, the listing is still there on Diverse Vinyl saying the album is on the Harvest label with a catalog number NYHITCH001. Hitchhiker is said to be a collection of solo acoustic songs that Young recorded at Indigo Ranch Studios in Malibu. In his 2014 memoir Special Deluxe, Young recalled: "I spent the night there with David and recorded nine solo acoustic songs, completing a tape I called Hitchhiker.

"It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances. Dean Stockwell, my friend and a great actor who I later worked on Human Highway as a co-director, was with us that night, sitting in the room with me as I laid down all the songs in a row, pausing only for weed, beer, or coke. Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console."

Tracklist:

1 “Powderfinger”
2 “Hold Back The tears”
3 “Human Highway”
4 “Hitchhiker”
5 “Ride My Llama”
6 “Lookout For My Love”
7 “Lotta Love”
8 “Fontainebleau”
9 “Campaigner”

Neil Young to release unused 70s album ‘Hitchhiker

Long forgotten unreleased Neil Young songs from a 10 day session in 1976 will finally be released as the album ‘Hitchhiker’.

Young recorded the songs from ‘Hitchhiker’ live and in one take on August 11, 1976 with producer David Briggs in Malibu. Many of the songs from ‘Hitchhiker’ were released on Young albums over the next five years although the title track was svaed until 2010 when it first appeared on ‘Le Noise’.

Lots of different supposed track lists coming out for this. Can't wait to see what's actually on it!

I hope it actually comes out at all I mean Neil himself announces many records that never end up coming out. But this should be GREAT if it does! Neil at the peak of his powers right here.

Re: Long Lost 1970s Neil Young Album Rumored For Release

Final track list:

Hitchhiker Tracklist:
01. Pocahontas
02. Powderfinger
03. Captain Kennedy
04. Hawaii
05. Give Me Strength
06. Ride My Llama
07. Hitchhiker
08. Campaigner
09. Human Highway
10. The Old Country Waltz

From the sound of the title track, looks to be a beautiful record. A few personal faves on there. Bet that'll be the full length version of Campaigner and I can't wait to hear the studio take of Llama. Only Neil could write a song about getting high with aliens and make it sound like a Marlyn Brando backing track.
