THE REVILLOS - HUNGRY FOR LOVE



THE REVILLOS - "Hungry For Love" / "Voodoo 2" (Dindisc DIN-Z 20) August 1980

I've just finished reading a book about Johnny Kidd and the author mentioned that New Wave group The Revillos recorded a version of "Hungry For Love." For those of you who don't know, the latter was released by Johnny Kidd & The Pirates during November 1963 and became a Top Twenty hit..

With this in mind I decided to track down a copy of The Revillos single and here it is!
The Revillos is a slightly more uptempo arrangement and includes a rather cheeky little 60s style guitar break. I love this version. Footage exists of the band performing "Hungry For Love" on a kid's TV Show. Seek it out on YouTube.
