- Neil Young's long-unreleased 1976 album, Hitchhiker, will finally be released on September 8th. Ultimate Classic Rock posted an excerpt from Young's Special Deluxe memoir, in which he talks about the August 11th, 1976 recording sessions for the set: "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. (Producer) David Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console."
- Save for two songs -- "Hawaii" and "Give Me Strength" -- the collection, which was recorded over 10 days 41 years ago, features songs that eventually made their way on to Young's albums, Hawks And Doves, Decade, Comes A Times, Rust Never Sleeps, American Stars 'n Bars, and Le Noise.
