Overview

The Very Best of Wilson Pickett [Rhino]

Like his '60's brothers in song Otis Redding and Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett defined the gritter side of soul with original fervor and timeless grace. And the double CD set The Best of Wilson Pickett: A Man and a Half completely chronicles 'Wicked' Pickett's groundbreaking genius. Disc One consists of the essential Pickett experience; Songs like "Midnight Hour," "Funky Broadway," "Land of 1,000 Dances," and "634-5789-Soulsville USA" showcase his earthy growls, carnal cries, and driving rhythm and horn sections that made these Atlantic recordings classics. Disc Two is a hodgepodge of cover-heavy hits. Vocally, it's a tamer Pickett definitely less wicked, but one who certainly emerges more versatile. Listening to Pickett put his soul-howl stamp on hits made famous by The Supremes, The Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix is not only a treat to the ears, it's a testament to his amazing prowess as a vocalist.

First of all, The editorial review by Mr. Idowu is about a different set than the one being offered here. Rhino's The Very Best of Wilson Pickett is a single CD with 16 great songs. If you need to get your party started, put on this disk. Wilson Pickett was always just a party waiting to happen. Great 60's era songs with a groove.
