In The Midnight Hour was Wilson Pickett’s first album for Atlantic Records. The work is a compilation of early singles recorded from 1961 to 1965. An excellent sampler of Pickett’s gospel-trained vocals and raw power, the album includes one of Pickett’s biggest hits, “In The Midnight Hour.” The song would be listed on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s “500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll” and Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” Also included are the gems, “I’m Not Tired” and “Don’t Fight It.” This is an absolute essential recording!

Wilson Pickett’s first album, from 1965, was a bit of a hodgepodge, including singles from as far back as 1962. Three of these tracks were actually issued as singles by The Falcons (for whom Pickett sang lead) before he started his solo career; others were issued as singles before Pickett broke through as a national star with the title track. This 12-track album doesn’t really suffer as a result, however. Besides the all-time classic “In the Midnight Hour,” it includes the Mann/Weil-penned single “Come Home Baby,” covered by several rock and soul artists; “Don’t Fight It,” which reached the R&B Top Ten in late 1965; “I’m Gonna Cry,” a 1964 single Pickett wrote with fellow soul legend Don Covay; and “I Found a Love,” The Falcons single that made the R&B Top Ten in 1962. Working with several collaborators (including Steve Cropper), Pickett himself wrote most of the tunes on this album. The record also featured the first recordings he made with the Stax rhythm section in Memphis — a combination that would yield much fine soul music throughout the rest of the ’60s.
