NEW RELEASE. Hunger, Strictly From Hunger
Artist: Hunger
Title: Strictly From Hunger           
Label: Now-Again Reserve
Format: CD/LP
Genre: Rock/Psyche/Indie

The latest release in Now-Again’s Reserve Series is Hunger – Strictly From Hunger: the band’s preferred version of the album, unedited, fuzz-guitar heavy late 60s psych-rock, restored and remastered from a rare test press. The CD is presented as a triple disc issue – packed with bonus material and a 31 page booklet filled with rare photos and liner notes by Clark Faville, Eothen Alapatt & Jim Cherry.

Hunger arrived in L.A. from Portland in late 1967 as the Outcasts, a teenage cover band, but within a 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 album’s release and their entry in rock’s canon was shadowed for years.

This is the definitive Reserve Edition reissue of a late ‘60s psych–rock classic, overseen by Hunger’s band members John MortonSteve Hansen and Mike Lane. This is the first time the band’s vision for the album has been issued in full on vinyl, and contains an extensive booklet by Jim CherryEothen Alapatt and Clark Faville that corrects many factual inaccuracies told over the record’s celebrated past three decades as one of rock’s holy grails.

The booklet is filled with never-published photos from lead guitarist John Morton’s archive. As an example of what’s in store, the full version of “Open Your Eyes” featuring Ed King’s lead guitar lines – all but absent on the Public! Records issue – comes nearly double the length of the issued version.
