Wilson Pickett The Best Of Wilson Pickett on Limited Edition 180g LP

Mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray

First Time on Vinyl Since 1967!

The great Wilson Pickett will be forever known as one of the original classic soul pioneers who had a knack of mastering funk grooves drenched in soul, rock and pop. He made some of the greatest sides ever for Atlantic, where he spent almost two decades creating some of the grittiest sold music ever waxed.

In 1967, Wilson 'The Wicked' Pickett was honored with his first greatest hits collection by Atlantic Records simply titled The Best Of Wilson Pickett. This stunning array of his hit singles, most of them backed by Booker T. and The M.G.’s, dominated the upper rungs of the soul and pop charts for over a year.

The man was important in bridging all types of rhythm and blues music to a much wider audience, churning out not only soul smashes but pop masterpieces. Most of his biggest hits have been covered by contemporaries like The Rascals, Solomon Burke, Jackie Wilson, The Supremes, B.B. King, Mitch Ryder and Bryan Ferry, just to name a few.

Jam packed with the original recordings of solid senders like his classics "In The Midnight Hour," "Mustang Sally," "Funky Broadway" and of course "Land Of 1000 Dances," The Best Of Wilson Pickett is virtually an encyclopedia of funk! This top ten charting 1967 LP hasn't been available on vinyl for many decades, that is until now! 

Friday Music is pleased to offer the album on 180g vinyl, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray. Friday has also included the original artwork elements by Haig Adishian, the classic photo of Wilson Pickett by Jerry Schatzberg, as well as the original liner notes from Jimmy Byrd.
