Hitchhiker

August 11, 1976 ~ Shakey records an album’s worth of songs in a single evening at Indigo Ranch Recording Studio in Malibu, California. Featuring “Pocahontas” and “Powderfinger,” the album is buried until September 8, 2017, when it’s released under the title of Hitchhiker.

Old Ways

Shakey releases his “country” album on August 12, 1985. It took a while until after he settled a beef with Geffen Records. Neil did the album while under the Geffen label but they didn’t want “country” Neil .. they wanted “rock ‘n roll” Neil. Shakey won in court, wrote a few more tunes to finish out the album and got some friends to help with the recording: Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Bela Fleck, Marty Stuart and more.
