  • Wilson Pickett

    Starting out as a gospel singer in the 1950s, Wilson Pickett went on to pave the way for soul music as a commercially viable style, first with the vocal group the Falcons and then as a solo artist. At Stax Studios in Memphis and at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, he recorded the chart-toppers “Mustang Sally,” “Land of 1,000 Dances,” “Funky Broadway,” “634-5789 (Soulsville, U.S.A.),” and “In the Midnight Hour.” Over 50 of his recordings made the R&B charts in the ’60s and early ’70s, but his influence stretched much further. With some of rock’s greatest artists including Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen all covering his music, “the Wicked Pickett” was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. There is no better way to listen to his electrifying, Little Richard-influenced Southern soul than on vinyl.
