5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty 60s Soul at a Bargain Price 26 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
These Original Album Series have just become available here in Oz and what a fabulous concept from Rhino UK, five albums in original sleeves (with notes) in one box set for very reasonable cost. What a disappointment that the sound quality on the Wicked Pickett album was overlooked. The fake [?] stereo version has been used, even though the sleeve states 'mono' (conversely The Exciting Wilson Pickett states 'stereo' but is in glorious, warm, punchy mono).

So on the Wicked Pickett album you have Pickett's voice out of the one speaker and the response chorus coming from the other speaker, which effectively dissipates power and cohesion in production which Fame studios and Jerry Wexler would have found. I compared the sound with tracks from the Atlantic/ Rhino USA 2 CD compilation Wilson Pickett 'A Man and A Half' from 1992 and the difference for my ears is marked - I much prefer the mono sound. That said, the album itself is so good, and some people may prefer the chorus separated.

The quality of material, i.e. the songs themselves, many of which Pickett wrote, is great and take you from the early 60s exciting gospel tinged doo wop of The Falcons 'I Found a Love' to 1968's 'I'm In Love', a great Bobby Womack song which heralds the slicker soul style of the 70s. The Exciting Wilson Pickett and The Wicked Pickett, for me are indispensable. The first album The Midnight Hour was issued to support the hit single and is really a collection of earlier singles where Pickett is finding is voice, some raw and the better for that - most are fabulous.

Both The Exciting Wilson Pickett and The Wicked Pickett have his major 60s hits except If You Need Me (covered by Solomon Burke and The Rolling Stones) released by for Double-L and available on A Man And A Half.

5.0 out of 5 stars Number one soul screamer 11 April 2011
By Rain
Format:Audio CD
Five essential albums in the history of soul by the Wicket Picket, the number one soul screamer, at a bargain price. Fantastic songs and what a voice. I think I better dance now.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wicked Pickett at his glorius best 18 May 2012
By Rick P
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Five Brilliant Albums, the only downside being that a couple of tracks are repeated, but who cares. The exciting Wilson Pickett is the stand out album for me, but I may be biased as that is the one I bought the collection for, as I havn't heard it since the 70's. What a bargain. If you are a soul fan you will love every track from 'I found love' to the energy of '1000 Dances'. Pickett's version of 'Barefootin' is brilliant. Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wilson Pickett 25 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great boxed set in the original album series of Wilson Pickett's first 5 Atlantic albums. The only drawback being that "The Wicked Pickett" is in Mono.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Pickett 25 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
5 original albums each in repro. original sleeves, a set to take you right back to that special time and place.
Leaves room for the 70's albums to be made available in another boxed set, I'm thinking particularly of the Philadelphia recordings.
