Originally released in 1965, Wilson Pickett's first album is actually just a compilation of various singles and B-sides dating as far back as 1961. Here's the wicked Pickett belting out greasy R&B with the Falcons ("I Found a Love," "Let's Kiss and Make Up") and duetting with Cissy Houston ("Teardrops Will Fall," "Come Home Baby"); he also tries his hand at a bit of Motown-style stomping on "I'm Gonna Cry" and lets a touch of gospel creep into "For Better or Worse." And then, of course, there are his early Stax hits like "Don't Fight It" and the title track. While it may lack a little in the way of cohesiveness, In the Midnight Hour is still an exciting tour through the first phases of the man's career. –Dan Epstein

"Hey Jude" is the ninth studio album by soul singer Wilson Pickett, recorded at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and released in 1969. The title track, a cover of The Beatles song of the same name, was a success, peaking at #13 on the Billboard R&B singles chart and #23 on the top 200. Also released as a single was a cover of Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild", which was less successful. The album is particularly noteworthy for the early appearance of guitarist Duane Allman, later founder of The Allman Brothers Band, who made some of his first recordings as a sideman on the album. His guitar work on the title track is credited as what first drew Eric Clapton to him, who two years later invited Allman to join him as part of Derek and the Dominos.

Surely no one was expecting a "quiet storm" album from Wilson Pickett in 1968, and that sure isn't what they got with I'm in Love, but the Wicked Pickett sounds a lot more convincing on this album's romantic numbers than anyone would have had a right to expect from one of the baddest cats of Southern soul. Of course, there aren't all that many romantic ballads here, but Pickett's rough-and-ready soul shouting manages to sound just as convincing on "Bring It On Home to Me" and "That Kind of Love" as he does on the pained "Jealous Love" and a properly intense rip through "Stagger Lee."
