2017 archive release from the iconic singer/songwriter.
The songs on Hitchhiker were recorded in a single night with the intent of being released as an album. In his memoir Special Deluxe, Young described the session, It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances... 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.
Many of the songs surfaced on Young albums American Stars 'n Bars, Decade, Comes a Time, Rust Never Sleeps, Hawks & Doves, and Le Noise, albeit in different forms.
Hitchhiker also contains a pair of never-before-released songs: Hawaii and Give Me Strength, which Young has occasionally performed live.
A1. Pocahontas 3:28
A2. Powderfinger 3:24
A3. Captain Kennedy 2:51
A4. Hawaii 2:38
A5. Give Me Strength 3:40
B1. Ride My Llama 1:50
B2. Hitchhiker (Like An Inca #1) 4:37
B3. Campaigner 4:20
B4. Human Highway 3:17
B5. The Old Country Waltz 3:38
NEW & SEALED VINYL
All of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with over 15 distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices and usually ahead of schedule!
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 ports of call before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, our warehouse and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
We are an online business so our records aren’t getting flicked through and/or tossed around daily. We store our merchandise in a temperature controlled warehouse and always handle and package them with great care to ensure you receive them in as good condition as possible.
Should you choose to shop with us, we ask for your understanding of this process and realise that ‘new and sealed’ doesn’t mean ‘straight off the production line’. If you are an avid collector and are looking for an absolutely pristine copy, please just email us first and we would be more than happy to provide info/photos of the item.
