Hitchhiker is a studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, issued September 8, 2017 on Reprise Records. It is the ninth release in Young's ongoing archival release series and the first of the Special Release series. Co-produced by Young and David Briggs with post-production from John Hanlon, the album was originally recorded on August 11, 1976 at Indigo Ranch Recording Studio in Malibu, California.

Following 2016's Peace Trail, a tossed-off album made live in the studio with a pair of studio musicians, and one of the worst records of his career, Young has returned to his vaults - which must rival Prince's for the amount of unreleased material stored in there - for Hitchhiker, a collection of songs recorded in a single. day in August 1976 that feature just Young, his acoustic guitar and occasional harmonica.

Hitchhiker ‎(LP, Album). Reprise Records, Reprise Records, Reprise Records. 9362-49126-1, 560639-1, 1-560639. this is neil young during his peak period. every song is a goldmine. even the already known ones impress again with their different sound signatures. with 33 minutes it is an pretty short album, but its so sweet it turns your heart to gold. makes me wonder why hitchhiker wasnt released back in the day? anyway, pressing quality is excellent.

Some retrospective distortion may cause listeners today to ask why Young's record company refused to release this collection as-is back in 1976. Though it definitely stands on its own as a solid piece of work, it also evokes the "classic Neil" era that fans likely yearn for on multiple levels.

Neil Young's 1976 acoustic album 'Hitchhiker' will finally get an official release. On August 11th, 1976, Neil Young walked into Indigo Studios in Malibu and recorded 10 songs with his acoustic guitar. The results of that session are collected on Hitchhiker, a new Young LP due out on September 8th. Many of the songs have surfaced on previous Young albums, albeit in different forms: Human Highway appeared two years later on 1978’s Comes a Time, while Powderfinger, Ride My Llama and Pocahontas showed up on Rust Never Sleeps (1979), and Captain Kennedy.

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.

Neil picked up a distorted Gibson Les Paul because he wanted to. Neil made country records, new wave records, 50s rock records, and even R&B records for the sole purpose of he wanted to. Love him or hate him, you could never call Neil Young fake. And because everything about him is front and center, there’s not much else to say about what already says about himself. The setting sun seen on the album’s cover is a fitting image to have while listening to Hitchhiker, as Young seems to see the album as a snapshot of himself in the midst of his changing career. Not a statement of any kind, but a mere photograph of a man moving forward with his life.

Although Young is correct when he claims Hitchhiker is a "complete piece" - it sustains a dusky sweetness from beginning to an end - it is certainly not a polished album. Instead, Hitchhiker holds together as a mood piece, an album where Young slowly reckons with a new dawn after surviving a hectic mid-'70s. Read full description. See details and exclusions.

Whats up with this release? Is this really in mono? A different mix?
Yes, this one is in Mono, and all other releases are in Stereo. I have both, and the japanese one sounds best, in my opinion.
Trying to work this out too. Sure the normal cd is stereo. Any ideas?!
