Hungry Ear records has been synonymous with Vinyl on Oahu for 40 years. Celebrate Hungry Ear's remarkable milestone with this hand-screened print. The edition is numbered 1 through 150. The center track list features all of Hungry Ear's store locations over the year.
Nick's Commentary: "It's really amazing to see a shop last over the years, especially in Hawaii where we sometimes are given an extra set of challenges as business owners. It's been great to see Hungry Ear records be a pillar of the community for so long across O‘ahu. Whether you're from the Vinyl record era, 8 tracks, cassettes or opening up the liner notes in your brand new CD purchase we all can connect with the feeling that gave us. There was no better money spent for me after mowing lawns all week. My first album that got me into loving music was Soundgarden's Superunknown...what was yours? With this print I wanted to figuratively show the community rising up along with their local record store. Hopefully you can identify with one of the playful characters in the hot air balloon."
