Roger Hurricane Wilson
"Live From the Eye of the Storm" Liner Notes
In 1995 Roger Hurricane Wilson performed over 200 shows for thousands of people at various blues festivals, clubs, auditoriums and arenas from Washington, D.C. to Austin, Texas. This CD documents his final club appearance on the road that year before starting the cycle again with a January 1, 1996 show at Atlanta's 15,000 seat OMNI Stadium.
Recorded direct to two track tape machines without any overdubs or the luxury of a "safe" multitrack mix down, the raw essence of Hurricane Wilson's live performance is captured on disc for "blues-rock purists." You may even detect the minor feedback recorded when an overzealous fan tips over a stage monitor. The Hurricane even jokes about it at the end of the tune when he laughingly says "Tip on in!", much to the crowd's amusement. This invitation is now extended to you. "Tip on in" and enjoy Roger Hurricane Wilson's guitar wizardry, caught live from the eye of the storm.
