Wilson Pickett – The Sound Of Wilson Pickett (LP Atlantic – SD 8145, 1967)
Producer Jerry Wexler
Genre: Funk / Soul
” The Sound of Wilson Pickett ” was one of three albums of the Atlantic this American singer, edited by Wicked One in 1967, produced by Jerry Wexler.
Looking at the alignment of the tracks, it seems to have a lot of successes and innovations, but no! In fact, the two sides of the disc contains the classic “Funky Broadway” and the tracks of some singles and versions. However, it remains one of his best albums.
We particularly liked the theme “Soul Dance Number Three”, p + she beat her. Pickett’s version of “You Can not Stand Alone” Rudy Clark, is also spectacular, especially about the pace, the intervention of the guitar and Farfisa organ. Pickett plays “Something Within Me” with a deep feeling of blues Memphis.
Wilson Pickett (March 18, 1941 – January 19 of 2006) was an American singer of soul music, which became known for such hits as “Mustang Sally” and “In the Midnight Hour”, among others. Still young, Pickett found himself attracted to the sound of singers like Jackie Wilson and Little Willie John. Although at that time was considered a gospel singer, Pickett was invited to join an R’n’B group called The Falcons. In 1964, he signed to Atlantic Records, thus beginning his successful career. Pickett was included in the Rock Hall of Fame in 1991.
