Neil Young’s 2014 book Special Deluxe: A Memoir of Life and Cars offered a tantalizing glimpse at a 1976 recording session few fans even knew existed. ‘One night, [my producer] Mr. [David] Briggs and I jumped into [my truck] Stretch and headed for his favorite place, Indigo Ranch Studios,’ Young wrote. ‘I spent the night there with David and recorded nine solo acoustic songs, completing a tape I called Hitchhiker. It was a complete piece, although I was pretty stony on it, and you can hear it in my performances. … I laid down all of the songs in a row, pausing only for weed, beer, or cocaine. Briggs was in the control room, mixing live on his favorite console. (Via Rolling Stone.)
