One of the best of the '60s soul shouters, he could scream up a sweat storm of sanctimonious rhythm & blues. Among the Wicked Pickett's hits, "In The Midnight Hour," "Funky Broadway" and "Mustang Sally" are responsible for launching countless roadhouse bands. Pickett died of a heart attack in early 2006.

Don''t wait "In the Midnight Hour" for this "Midnight Mover." "Mustang Sally" called "634-5789" because she knows that his "Engine #9" shakes it at the "Funky Broadway" on its way to his "Land of 1000 Dances." He''s all "Sugar Sugar," the man to mix "Fire and Water." He''s got Duane Allman playing killer slide guitar on "Hey Jude," and the finest Southern soul rhythm sections backing him: Stax, Muscle Shoals, American. It''s Wicked Pickett. ''Nuff said. --Robert Gordon
