The Hunter was released as a single to promote the self-titled GTR album in 1986. Written for the band by Geoff Downes of Yes and Asia fame, who also produced the album. This 12" maxi-single contained no less than three different versions of the title song. First we have a single version which is a bit shorter than the album version which is track two of this single. On the flip side we get a special mix of the same song followed by two instrumentals taken from the album to represent the two guitarists of the group: Steve Howe's Sketches In The Sun and Steve Hackett's Hackett To Bits.

This year (2015) the GTR album has been reissued with all three versions of The Hunter included (the single version and special GTR mix as bonus tracks) plus a second disc featuring an excellent live show previously released as a stand alone live album. Personally, I like both the GTR studio album and the live album, both of which I've rated separately with four stars each. All the music included in this single is now available on CD.
