Wilson Pickett - The Sound Of Wilson Pickett (1967)

Wilson Pickett was an American soul singer and songwriter.

The Sound Of Wilson Pickett was Pickett's second album of 1967. With another selection of eleven raw soul numbers, it featured the hit single "Funky Broadway", a cover of a song released earlier the same year by Dyke & The Blazers. It gave Pickett his fourth #1 R&B hit, and also made it to #8 on the pop chart. Other R&B hits on the album were "Soul Dance Number Three" (#10) and a new two-part version of his old hit with The Falcons, "I Found A Love" (#6)
The album featured the usual crew of white soul musicians who were responsible for the behind-the-scenes work of some of the best soul singers of the 60s, from the Stax studios and American Sound Studio in Memphis, and Fame Studios in Alabama (where the bulk of the album was recorded). These included guitarist Chips Moman, keyboardist Spooner Oldham, drummer Roger Hawkins, bassist Tommy Cogbill, songwriter Dan Penn, and The Memphis Horns.
