309 – Wilson Pickett – In The Midnight Hour (1965)
Written by Wilson Pickett and Steve Cropper
Label – Atlantic

To many music followers, the Memphis sound and in particular Stax recordings are just as vital as Tamla Motown. “In The Midnight Hour” signalled a new era of soul, in which the focus shifted to the looser, funkier sounds of the South. A vital record that captures Pickett’s throaty croon at its best.
