Like many soul greats of the ’60s, Wilson Pickett got his start in gospel singing. After trying out different locales, his career finally took off when he recorded in Memphis with guitarist/producer Steve Cropper. “In The Midnight Hour” went only to # 21 in 1965, but has become a quintessential soul classic, with its parallel horn lines, cool bass line (Duck Dunn) and solid drumming (Al Jackson). I forgot to mention Pickett’s great singing!
