Artist: HUNGER
Title: Strictly From Hunger (Reserve Series)
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $55.00
"The latest release in Now-Agains Reserve Series is Hunger -- Strictly From Hunger: the bands preferred version of the album, unedited, fuzz-guitar heavy late 60s psych-rock, restored and remastered from a rare test press. Hunger arrived in L.A. from Portland in late 1967 as the Outcasts, a teenage cover band, but within six months they had signed with a connected manager, played all over Los Angeles, embraced psychedelia and signed on to record an album of original music for the label their manager founded for them: Public! Records. They showed tremendous promise -- and their producers invested heavily into a band that was going to be the next marquee act at the Whiskey A Go-Go, bringing in members of Strawberry Alarm Clock, including future Lynyrd Skynyrd star Ed King, to produce an album. But Hunger broke up before their albums release and their entry in rocks canon was shadowed for years. This is the definitive Reserve Edition reissue of a late 60s psych-rock classic, overseen by Hungers band members John Morton, Steve Hansen and Mike Lane: the bands preferred, unedited, fuzz-guitar heavy version of the album, restored and remastered from a rare test press. This is the first time that bands vision for the album has been issued in full on vinyl. Contains an extensive booklet by Jim Cherry, Eothen Alapatt and Clark Faville that corrects many factual inaccuracies told over the records celebrated past three decades as one of rocks holy grails. The booklet is filled with never-published photos from lead guitarist John Mortons archive. Heres an example of whats in store ? the full version of Open Your Eyes featuring Ed Kings lead guitar lines -- all but absent on the Public! Records issue -- and nearly double the length of the issued version!" - Now-Again. Download card for WAV files and bonus tracks -- including the full Public! Records version of the album and 7" single tracks -- included.

Title: Lost Album
Format: LP
Label: Void
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Warehouse find of the last copies of this earlier reissue. "Just a few copies left of this long OOP Void classic. Heres the scoop -- The Hunger released their only LP on the Publix label way back in the 60s. This edition did not have (or had very little) guitar. Though it was a classic LP, it needed the guitar. Sometime later a friend in California found an alternate acetate with a stirring guitar versus organ sound and different arrangements and song lengths. Brian Hulitt contacted Mike Parkison and Willie Daffern about this lost sound and they claim that it was none other than Ed King who stopped in to put the guitar parts on this version! The rest is history, as they say. Here is the classic Hunger The Lost Album as it originally was and should sound. Liner notes by Clark Faville." Limited remaining stock..." -Void
