Oh So Wicked

01/19: AOL News: Wilson Pickett Dies of Heart Attack at 64
Unlike Lou Rawls, there's never been a doubt about Wilson Pickett's place in the Soul Pantheon. And : Wilson Pickett has reissued Pickett's 60's catalog which reveals him to be more than a singles act (much like Otis Redding's same period albums). As for compilations, Rhino's 1992 2CD A Man and A Half is still in print, and their single Best of are the best of many. Pickett's last studio, 1999's It's Harder Now, is also worth checking out, as it shows that he still had the grit, even if the voice was going.
