This 1971 album was Wilson s last for Atlantic, and was really his last great record, as the title cut scored his final #1 hit on the R&B charts. But for some reason this baby has NEVER come out on CD, so this new exclusive marks both a long-awaited CD debut and the addition of another legend to our Collectors Choice Music label roster! This is hard-driving soul as only Pickett could pound out; includes Covering the Same Old Ground ; Don t Knock My Love Pt. 1 ; Fire and Water ; Hot Love ; Mama Told Me Not to Come ; Not Enough Love to Satisfy ; Pledging My Love ; Woman Let Me Be Down Home ; You Can t Judge a Book by Its Cover , and (Your Love Has Brought Me) A Mighty Long Way . Gene Sculatti supplies the notes.

"Wilson Pickett's "Don't Knock My Love",his last recording for Atlantic. Not only is this album one of "the wicked's" best,it's also not one of your ordinary soul sessions. The songs roll continuously with different instrumentations,synthesizers,background singers,to the intros with each song, a unique approach from the gritty soul singer. The songs are strong,Pickett's voice is right on cue,the studio band is cuttin' the notes. Listen for,"Hot Love" and "Mama Told Me Not To Come". DON'T KNOCK MY LOVE was out of print, Collector's Choice recently released this rare recording in 2009. There is a few liner notes,the audio could've been louder,turn it up,it's a good one,recorded at the famous Muscle Schoals studio."
This is a must for all 70's R&B lovers

"If you were into the 70's R&B music this is a must for your collection. This is in the genre of all the Motown, Atlantic, and Stax music that was being played during those days and it still sounds as good now as it did when it first came out. Brings back some good memories!!!!"
