Hungry Wolf (Philips 6308 009) 1970
(CD reissue Hugo-Montes Production, HMPCD004)

This was the work of session musicians including future members of Rumplestiltskin and Ugly Custard. The album is now very rare. It featured vocals by Peter Lee Stirling who had a couple of pop hits in the early seventies as Daniel Boone; as well as Alan Parker (Blue Mink, David Bowie, CCS, Elton John, Gerry Rafferty) and Alan Hawkshaw (Cliff Richard, Shadows, Madeline Bell, Donovan, Family Dogg).

Taken from The Tapestry of Delights - The Comprehensive Guide to British Music of the Beat, R&B, Psychedelic and Progressive Eras 1963-1976, Vernon Joynson   ISBN 1 899855 04 1

Interesting, semi-instrumental, fast-moving Hammond-dominated album; Alan Hawkshaw truly shines on keys here!
