WILSON PICKETT was a major figure in the development of American Soul Music. He recorded over 50 songs which hit the US RnB charts, and frequently crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100.
Among his best known hits are In the Midnight Hour, Land of 1000 dances, Mustang Sally, and Funky Broadway.
In the early seventies after leaving Atlantic he was signed by RCA.
This album was recorded in 1973, and is now reissued for the first time on CD.
Originally a two LP set, it contained his best known recordings and hits, as well as a cover of Proud Mary (by CREEDANCE CLEAR WATER REVIVAL).
The sound is excellent, and the band is a solid soulful unit, making this an essential purchase for the soul collector.
