Don't wait "In the Midnight Hour" for this "Midnight Mover." "Mustang Sally" called "634-5789" because she knows that his "Engine #9" shakes it at the "Funky Broadway" on its way to his "Land of 1000 Dances." He's all "Sugar Sugar," the man to mix "Fire and Water." He's got Duane Allman playing killer slide guitar on "Hey Jude," and the finest Southern soul rhythm sections backing him: Stax, Muscle Shoals, American. It's Wicked Pickett. 'Nuff said. --Robert Gordon

Same CD - but not from Rhino - mine is from Atlantic. Good 60's R&R!

"Wilson Pickett passed away on January 20, 2006, but his spirit lives on to me. After hearing about his passing, I went on to get a best of CD by him to remember him. This is a wonderful, dynamic album of his best songs. Although I wasn't born the time he was famous, it makes me feel like I'm in that period where he's singing In The Midnight Hour, my favorite. I was still hearing that song on some radio stations playing older hits recently. The other famous hits of Mustang Sally, 634-5789, and the fun Land of A Thousand Dances are just as durable. But after those four, I heard some more funky numbers that really challenged some of James Brown's hits. Wilson can sure be hollering, yelling on the others, proving that he's got soul too. One of the other standouts is Engine No. 9 from 1970, which is heavy on the funk and beats and one of Gamble and Huff's best records before they dominated most of the '70s. This is the first time that I got to hear it and it's already another Wilson Pickett favorite to me right up there with Midnight! Even the two Bobby Womack-written songs are fabulous as well as the ones that Wilson wrote himself. So I suggest to anyone to get this CD right away to remember Wilson Pickett and the impact he made on music. He ranks right up there with Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Bobby Womack,Teddy Pendergrass, Little Richard, Lou Rawls, Luther Vandross and others as one of the best soul singers."
Great Cover - lousy sound quality

"This was a CD replacement for my old vinyl. Same song selections but the sound quality is tinny and thin. Disappointing."
