Wilson Pickett's first album on Atlantic (1965) includes singles from as far back as 1962. Three of these tracks were actually issued as singles by The Falcons (for whom Pickett sang lead) before he started his solo career; others were issued as singles before Pickett broke through as a national star with the title track. The all-time classic "In The Midnight Hour" was composed by Pickett and Steve Cropper at the historic Lorraine Motel in Memphis where Martin Luther King, Jr. would later be killed. The song reached #1 on the R&B charts.The album includes other surefire hits such as "Come Home Baby", "Don't Fight It," which reached the R&B Top Ten in late 1965; "I'm Gonna Cry," a 1964 single Pickett wrote with fellow soul legend Don Covay; and "I Found a Love," a Falcons single that made the R&B Top Ten in 1962. The record features the first recordings he made with the Stax rhythm section in Memphis, a combination that would yield much fine soul music throughout the rest of the '60s.180 gram audiophile vinyl
