Album Review
If we could go back to a time where we had never heard these songs before, Hitchhiker would more than stand on its own as a brilliant piece of performance art. Stripped of the subsequent mythology or knowledge of what these songs would eventually become, each performance remains beautiful in its own right. Young’s delivery is so fresh that the songs seem to hang as delicately as drawings in the sand, waiting to be wiped away by the rising tide. Thanks to David Briggs and his tape recorder, they were preserved. Now, more than forty years after it was recorded, that one “stony” night in Malibu where a single musician set down his newest tunes, accompanying himself on guitar, is available for everyone to enjoy.
