ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bluestorm Records presents the new digital and CD single, “Food, Phone, Gas, & Lodging”, by longtime musician and recording artist, Roger “Hurricane” Wilson. The original was recorded in 1975 on GRC Records by the legendary Eric Quincy Tate Group from Atlanta. Originally from Corpus Christie, TX, and at the urging of well-known recording artist, Tony Joe White, EQT was the second band to be signed to Capricorn Records behind the Allman Brothers Band in 1970. This song was written by EQT’s original bassist, David Cantonwine, but due to record label contract restrictions, it was credited to Mary Lane Cantonwine, his wife at the time. Roger first heard EQT in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park in 1970 at age 16, and he immediately became a fan. They played his senior prom at Woodward Academy in College Park, GA with Wet Willie in 1972, and he followed them musically until the end and beyond. The band eventually invited Roger onstage to sit in with them in the mid 70’s, and took him under their wing for many years after, becoming close friends and mentors. Says original EQT band member and the song’s writer, David Cantonwine, “I do approve of Roger’s version of this song, and I think this could be a big record for him. Every radio station we went to back in the 70’s then said, ‘If Food Phone Gas & lodging had been on the A Side of our single we would have had a Hit record on our hands’, but the DJs were told to play ‘No Rolling Boogie’.”
