Finally being released after over forty years from its original recording is as amazing as the fact that this was not deemed worthy of release by Neil Young’s label in 1976 (ironically released under same label today). It was certainly a step back from an electric and dark trajectory begun after 1972’s Harvest, but it’s a cohesive and moving acoustic album. Young recorded this in one evening with acoustic guitar, harmonica and piano on one track. Most of these songs have been re-recorded and released somewhere along Young’s extensive career, with the title song released less than ten years ago. What stands out is the stark difference between these takes and the later released versions, particularly on two songs. ‘Powderfinger’ - one of Young’s most powerful songs - has a totally different feel without the blistering electric guitar. This version maintains the same cinematic sense of impending personal doom and retains all of its impact. ‘Human Highway’ is heartbreaking in this context and stripped down becomes a vulnerable song of surrender - “take my eyes from what they’ve seen”. Other highlights include the Appalachian tinged ‘Captain Kennedy’ and the biographical feel of ‘Hitchhiker’ where Young describes he first “saw open water” in California, though the song is decidedly druggy. If you are a fan you will treasure this and even the casual listener should enjoy the chill vibe.

I mean this is a great Neil Young album. I''m not sure I buy Neil''s excuse for him not wanting to release this after production because he felt he sounded "too stoned" but a stoned Neil Young is a good Neil Young in my book! I cant think of anybody I''d rather hear alone on his acoustic other than Neil Young, and this is one of his best acoustic efforts. This album will go along way in making the case that Neil is awfully hard to beat when it comes to hearing a man and his guitar alone in a studio. I''m 43 and I play my acoustic alone in my apartment all the time, and I can tell you that what Neil does on this album is incredible, and he makes it sound deceptively easy. From a singer/songwriting perspective, it doesn''t get much better than this! And I believe this album is timeless. it doesn''t sound dated, it doesn''t sound like a period piece-it sounds like pure music that''s gonna last for a long time.
A must have for Neil fans and for anyone who appreciates soulful music.

Few performers can pull off an unaccompanied, starkly orchestrated, all-acoustic set and leave listeners wanting more. As a litany of past releases and more recent "official bootlegs" have shown, Neil Young has more than mastered the super-intimate setting. Some of his most haunting, beautiful and unforgettable work has emerged from just himself, a guitar or a piano and nothing else. Something inexorable and ineffable lies at the heart of Young''s solo performances, something that words would probably only cheapen. Needless to say, few others seem capable of pulling off such stunning solo sessions. "Hitchhiker," recorded back in 1976, between Young''s "ditch" albums and the classic "Rust Never Sleeps," perfectly showcases this side of Young, complete with a self-professed drug-soaked performances and an intensity that just doesn''t seem to exist anywhere else in quite the same way. Young has evolved into a kind of musical singularity that defies any imitation because of the sometimes ferociously personal elements that emerge from his work. He remains inimitable to this day, one of the final vestiges of a time when people accepted popular music as "art" beyond mere marketing hype. The world has, of course, inevitably become a different place and this fascinating collection allows an almost guilty time-traveling peek into a bygone era.

Though "Hitchhiker" contains numerous already released songs, it doesn''t matter. These versions sound new and unheard. The album''s first song preserves Young''s nonchalant "you ready, Briggs?" For those who don''t know, "Briggs" was David Briggs, Young''s longtime collaborator who passed away in 1995. Some consider "Hitchhiker," recorded at Indigo Ranch recording studio in a now heavily eroding Malibu, a tribute to his lost friend. "Pocahontas" features the actual track that graced "Rust Never Sleeps," though sans the numerous overdubs and sound effects layered on some three years later. This ranks high among Young''s most powerful songs, complete with chilling references to massacres of Native Americans, Buffalo killings, and eyes that have turned to blanks. It seems to encapsulate the alienation likely experienced by modern Native Americans as they recall the past and gaze into a strange present. The later overdubs undoubtedly added a new dimension to the song, but this stripped down version proves that the song didn''t require any further adornment.

"Powderfinger," known as a highly distorted thundering rock epic, here becomes a disturbing and tragic ballad. The acoustic only arrangement conjures up folk singers in front of open fires spinning musical yarns of murders, crimes and life lessons learned a little too hard. The mix sounds almost invasively intimate. Perhaps we''re a little too close in this instance? Regardless, it makes for a powerful and stunning listen. "Captain Kennedy" appeared almost as-is on "Hawks and Doves," replicates the mood of "Powderfinger." Boats, guns, war killing and ever present mortality once again permeate the lyrics. "Hawaii" tells the story of a lost vitamin addict. The song has never appeared on another Young album, though it apparently has appeared occasionally in concert. The same holds true for the unreleased "Give Me Strength" with its voluminous, sometimes dizzying, chord changes. An ode to dealing with harsh reality, the chorus relates a simple message: "Give me strength to move along, give me strength to realize she''s gone." "Ride My Llama" also appeared on "Rust Never Sleeps," but loaded with numerous treatments. This version also omits the gorgeous soft howling bridge between verses and even feels a little incomplete compared to its later incarnation. "Hitchhiker," with a thundering rhythm deals with Young''s life of drug experimentation with brutal honesty. From hash, amphetamines, Valium, paranoia, grass, cocaine and others, Young just lays it all out bare. The song feels like a confession or self-recursive journalistic reporting. "Campaigner," possibly one of Young''s best unreleased songs, did appear in truncated form on 1977''s "Decade." It certainly feels relevant today, Richard Nixon or not. "Human Highway," extracted from its "Comes A Time" atmosphere, feels more melancholy. The line "how could people get so unkind" really resonates here. The album ends with Young on piano singing "The Old Country Waltz," which opened the album "American Stars ''n Bars" a mere year later.

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. Decades later, it recalls a lost age and forlorn nostalgia likely saturates the cochleas of today''s listeners, especially those with direct memories. Not to mention that the rejection probably allowed later re-recordings and re-interpretations to exist. After all, "Rust Never Sleeps" would not sound the same without "Pocahontas," "Ride My Llama" or the heavy rizzing "Powderfinger." "Hitchhiker" as a whole likely works best as a gem lost in a vault suddenly resuscitated a little past its prime time. Strangely, the record company may have been right about this one, but their order now stands defied just over forty years later. Take that! Regardless of its fascinating background, or of how soused Young was during the recording or whether or not it would have made a great album back in the mid-1970s, "Hitchhiker" definitely works fantastically in the format that Young decided to finally release it in today. Basically, a "could have been but wasn''t" lost treasure that shows another side of some of Young''s best songs. Any fan of Young''s acoustic side will relish every nanosecond. Hopefully more material similar to "Hitchhiker" sits in the vaults awaiting rediscovery.

I''ve seen Neil maybe half a dozen or maybe a dozen times - don''t remember, it was the 70''s! I remember a few of his shows during this time period that were all acoustic and they were superb. Anyhow, this CD just arrived this morning and I had a short trip in the car and popped it in: it has been years since a recording has grabbed me the way "Hitchhiker" has! It is that good. Though the songs are on other albums, etc., they should different, better! The CD quality is really great and crystal clear (or is it my 65 year old hearing??). Powderfinger is particularly good, as is Pochantas, as is Captain Kennedy, and so on.

Some have asked why the long wait time until this was released. Could it have been that just maybe Neil would know, that 42 years in the future, a bunch of us would just need to hear this music at that particular time?

Wow this album really "brings me back" to those carefree days in my early 20s when Neil Young was at the top of his game and Richard Nixon still had "soul"..... Everything on here is worth listening to - 33 minutes of pure hippie bliss recorded in one continuous session. I grew up listening to this guy and still enjoy seeing him in concert - especially with Crazy Horse. This album is reminiscent of Harvest, Comes a Time, Harvest Moon, and Prairie Wind - the "acoustic" Neil. His voice here is so distinctive - so AUTHENTIC. We were living in crazy times when this album was recorded and things are even crazier now - but through it all Neil Young has been true to the music. And believe me - that is no small consolation. Thank you again Neil.

Top Notch Neil Young in one recording session, 1976. This is a true masterpiece and I am so glad it has found the light of day. Thanks for releasing, Neil Young. Long May You Run. Originals later included on Live Rust. Original recordings of the epic Pocahontas, Campaigner, Hitchhiker, and many other great tracks. Also inludes a few rarities like "Hawaii" and a post breakup song called "Give Me Strengt." Both of those are unreleased. "Captain Kennedy" was taken from this session and added to the otherwise mostly horrible album, Hawks and Doves, during Neil''s Burned out rock star period when he was struggling to raise 2 kids with Cerebral Palsy, one of which was non verbal and quadriplegic (Ben). From this effort to help his kids, the album "Trans" was created, but that has nothing to do with this album.

This quite short album (it clocks in at 34 minutes only) of songs sung solo with just an acoustic guitar are just the ticket for those who love the softer side of NY. I personally love all his shades but I am really enjoying acoustic versions of songs that ultimately were released as rockers. The best example of this is the version here of the powerhouse that is Powderfinger. As ever, he is in great voice; indeed this is some of the finest singing I can remember. In my opinion the previously unheard songs (e.g. Hawaii) are good but not as great as the others we''ve heard before and for that reason I''m giving it four stars. But it''s a good four stars.

I love Neil Young''s unplugged album, but this goes even further down the road of honest simplicity. Just Neil Young, no backing vocals, no backing band. Most of the tracks are him performing on an acoustic guitar and occasionally accompanying himself on the harmonica. There are a couple of tracks where he sings whilst playing the piano. Yet amazingly it still manages to be one of my favorite albums. I cannot imagine I will ever tire of listening to this.

A lot of the songs will be familiar if you like Neil Young. They were included in longer and rockier versions on later albums. Hitchhiker is basically acoustic demos which are quite short. This is interesting to see how he develops them.
