ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hunter was formed in 1985 By Keyboardist/Songwriter Brook Hansen formally of Nervous Energy and Boast, and drummer Karl Raymond Witt. First named 21st Century,and boasting styles ala Yngwie,Rainbow,Deep Purple,Kansas,they soon recruited Bart Hamilton Walsh(David Lee Roth) on Guitar,Dave Acaisha on Bass, and the late Clyde Holly(Biloxi) Lead vocals,Marc Droubey of Survivor drumming in the studio. We started out in my parents garage Brook says in Northridge Ca. that I converted into a studio, We later moved on to Muse recording studios,

We had immediate industry attention because of our musicianship, stellar vocals and songwriting, but problems quickly arose between Bart and Karl and that lineup of Hunter quickly came to pass.
Bart’s roommates at the time were John Alderete and Bruce Bouliet of the legendary band RACER X, So he asked their Drummer Scott Travis and bassist John Alderete to record on our demo as we secured a Spec deal at the Legendary Record Plant in Hollywood, Eventually Bart moved on to join Paradise then Lancia to make way for one of his students to take his place, Michael J.Taris whom we knew from the Muse days(see Hunter story) and was the only one who could play the infamous “Hunters in the Night” solo which Bart used to say that it would have been a challenge for even Paul(Gilbert) to play ,also my roommate Dave Acaisha became our permanent bassist, as he an Mike had been in bands together called Taris and Acaisha. Those were some wonderful days. We all shared my condo just down the street from the Country Club,and atteneded many great RACER X shows.

We went through numerous drummers and vocalist’s over several years, until an ad in the music connection brought us to Russell Stevens, aka Stephen Hunter,and the extraordinary Vinnie Sliver on drums. We gigged relentlessly all over L.A. and by a chance meeting at Jerry’s Deli, Bobby Kimball Of TOTO, came into our life to and offered to help produce and sing backing vocals, on this album,as well as opening several shows for his band. Brook has also been an active member of TAKARA fame writing and playing keyboards for the band.

Suffice to say the music speaks for itself, had it not been for the grunge movement, their is no doubt in my mind we would have made our mark right along side Europe, Dokken, Warrant, and other many other successful commercial melodic rock bands of that era. I am thankful that you have this CD, to share with all who support and love this style of music.
