Now-Again Reserve: Custom-made LP’s delivered once per quarter, presenting some of the rarest records in their respective genres in high quality LP format. Each release is produced with the direct participation of the artist.

Hunger arrived in L.A. from Portland in late 1967 as the Outcasts, a cover band, but within a six months they befriended the Doors, struck up a residency on the Sunset Strip, embraced psychedelia and signed on to record an album of original music for 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 Lynrd Skynrd star Ed King. 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 lead guitarist John Morton: the band’s preferred, unedited, fuzz-guitar heavy version of the album, restored and remastered from a rare acetate and discerningly pressed. This is the first time that band’s vision for the album has been issued in full on vinyl. Contains an extensive book by Jim Cherry 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 Morton’s archive. Subscribers receive a bonus 2nd LP of the Public! Records version of the album, and a download card for bonus 7″ tracks.
