"Hunger is From" is a musical number with a spoken word performance by Ken Nordine (in a rhythmic manner, akin to beat poetry, what Nordine termed "word jazz"). He speaks about midnight snacking, samples a variety of foods, and describes them to the listener.
The instrumentation uses jazz backing by the Fred Katz Group, with cellist Katz and percussionist Chico Hamilton (billed as "Forest Horn").
