'The Exciting Wilson Pickett' is the third album by R&B and soul singer Wilson Pickett. The album includes some of his most recognisable hits, but the whole album is of nearly an equal level. His covers of R&B standards like 'Something You Got' and 'Mercy Mercy' are outstanding and gives you an idea of Pickett's great vocal abilities. It is an energetic and highly listenable record with the classic rhythm section of Cropper, Dunn and Jackson Jr. Isaac Hayes is adding his part by playing the piano. 'Land of 1000 Dances' and '634-5789 (Soulsville, U.S.A.)' are some of his most famous songs which can be found on this album, but also a classic like 'In the Midnight Hour'. The album as a whole can be seen as one of the best '60s soul albums. Wilson Pickett is a major figure in the development of American soul music and recorded over 50 charting songs. He passed away in 2004, but will always be recognised as an important person in the soul scene. Tracklist: Side A: 1. Land Of 1000 Dances 2. Something You Got 3. 634-5789 4. Barefootin' 5.
