Neil Young to issue 'Hitchhiker' an unreleased 1976 solo album
David Briggs produced album is 'a gem from the Neil Young archive'
Neil Young is once more digging into his archives to issue Hitchhiker, an unreleased album originally recorded in 1976.
The album was committed to tape live, during one 24-hour period in Malibu 41 years ago and includes early versions of songs that would appear on later albums including Pocahontas and Powderfinger (Rust Never Sleeps) and Human Highway (Comes A Time). Hitchhiker also features two previously unreleased songs Hawaii and Give Me Strength.
Hitchhiker was produced by Young's lifelong friend David Briggs, although the new release features post-production by John Hanlon.
The album is being issued on 140g black vinyl and CD.
