[UK reissue]

The band Hungry Chuck was formed by members of Great Speckled Bird, the backup band for Ian and Sylvia Tyson, in the early 1970s. Members of Hungry Chuck lived in Woodstock when the Hungry Chuck album was recorded at Grossman's Bearsville studios. They have later been working with several of the Band's musical friends like Bobby Charles, Ringo Starr and Neil Young. A more detailed history of Hungry Chuck was sent to me by bandmember Jim Colgrove. See also the official Hungry Chuck web site and Hideki Watanabe's Hungry Chuck web pages.

Hungry Chuck has been reissued several times on LP and CD in Japan. In the UK it was reissued with different cover art under the title South in New Orleans.
