Tony Fletcher: In The Midnight Hour – The Life And Soul of Wilson Pickett (Oxford University Press)
Tony Burke, Blues & Rhythm, December 2017
BACK IN THE mid-1960s, Wilson Pickett was one of my main men. A series of great singles waxed for Atlantic, including 'In The Midnight Hour', covers of Sir Mack Rice's 'Mustang Sally', Chris Kenner's 'Land of A 1000 Dances' and Roger Collins' 'She's Looking Good', as well as 'Funky Broadway' and '634-5789', were staples of the dancefloors in Manchester clubs and the whole U.K. soul scene.
