Johnny Morisette was born January 1, 1935 in Montu Island, South Pacific. He was raised in Mobile, Alabama, where he grew up singing with a local quartet, The Bells of Heaven. In 1952, Johnnie Morisette decided to abandon gospel and hitchhiked out to Los Angeles. Before releasing on Sam Cooke's SAR label he did a bit of recording for the Dootone and Specialty labels. When SAR folded after Cooke's death, Morisette recorded sporadically for several local independent labels like Icepac, Bay-Tone, and others in styles ranging from blues to funk. I'm Hungry was recorded in the early 1970s and was released on his own J&J imprint. Despite the fact that I'm Hungry has been a deep-funk classic since the mid 1990s and therefore has been put out on several compilations since, you just need to listen closely to hear why this tune has to be re-issued on 45rpm single too.
