"The Wicked" Comes to Philly
Todd and In Charge | Miami, FL | 02/22/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It is incomprehensible why this cd is currently out-of-print. But fans of Pickett, Gamble and Huff, the Philly sound, or just awesome rocking soul music need to pick this up from one of the third-party sellers. It's a winner from start to finish.

The record starts strong with a raucous version of "Run Joey Run," moves into a groove with the minor hit "Don't Let the Green Grass Fool You," rocks out on "Get Me Back On Time, Engine Number 9" and really never lets up. My favorite track is the Gamble-Huff nod to psychedelia, "Bumble Bee (Sting Me)," which sounds like it could have been an outtake from Electric Mud or Black Gladiator. Priceless.

The bonus tracks add a few more versions of the hits, and an hilarious version of "International Playboy." I agree with the reviewer who notes that it clocks in pretty short, but it's a great ride while it lasts."
