Neil Young releasing new old album

Neil Young, Hitchhiker
September 1, 2017

In August, 1976 Neil Young went into the studio to record some of the new songs he was working on. Many of them would become standards in the Young catalog like Powderfinger and Pocahontas, which would appear on the Rust Never Sleeps album in full power band style.  Young is releasing the earlier acoustic treatments of these songs as recorded in that 1976 session as the new album Hitchhiker. Some of these have not been heard before, and they are a great example of Young's work in that period. Listen to one of the songs here, and if you'd like to hear the whole album, NPR has it online at the moment at http://www.npr.org/2017/08/31/547036559/first-listen-neil-young-hitchhiker

Richard Thompson
July 15, 2017

We're partnering with Trebble.FM to bring some music to the site. We'll have a curated set of music that will rotate from time to time.  This week we're bringing you the inimitable Richard Thompson. This is a nice tool, lets you pull together embeddable music players from a lot of on-line sources. It's still in beta and - not quite perfect, but good enough to use as it is. Enjoy.  If you have suggestions for people you would like to hear and see, let us know.

Fresh new month, fresh new montage. Been a while folks. I've gathered many more followers. A big thanks to all you people. Shouldn't be this long a wait for the next montage. I have quite a few going on and this was the one I deemed finished first.
