Limited to 500 copies, hand-numbered, but this is probably a promo copy as it has no number. This album was mastered from a test-pressing made in the late 1960's, unearthed in Los Angeles in 1995, aka 'The Lost Album'.

"Hailing from Portland Oregon, The Hunger! had moved down to Los Angeles in the late sixties where they began to gain popularity amongst the burgeoning West Coast psychedelic scene. Their sole album, Strictly From Hunger! was released on Public! Records in 1968 and is very much in keeping with the more prominent psych-rock bands of the Californian scene, inhabiting the same musical sphere as The Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Doors and Jefferson Airplane." (Rockasteria)

"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." (Fusetron Sound)
