Strictly From Hunger!: The 1968 Album
Strictly From Hunger!: The 1968 Album

It’s official! John Morton and Jim Cherry have signed a contract for “Strictly From Hunger!: A Rock and Roll Memoir” with Jorvik Press.

“Strictly From Hunger!: A Rock and Roll Memoir” is a trip down the Sunset Strip circa 1968 through the experiences of John Morton and his band Hunger! from their inception to their premature demise just as they were about to go national with their album, “Strictly From Hunger”. Hunger was arguably the biggest band on the Sunset Strip in 1968, they were the house band at the Whisky a go-go, they were favorably compared to The Doors in the Los Angeles rock press, and they were going to have one of their songs in a major motion picture. Hunger played with Cream, The Who, Sparrow (to become Steppenwolf), Jose Feliciano, and many other groups that played on the Sunset Strip in ’68. John Morton was friends with Jim Morrison and Duane Allman, and Morton witnessed Jimi Hendrix recording. Their album “Strictly From Hunger!” was well received in a European release, and caught the attention of Ahmet Ertegun and Robert Stigwood.
