  • Pickett Wilson - Let Me Be Your Boy – The Early Years 1957-62 (CD)


    • The great Wilson Pickett brought the gruff, throaty power of his gospel-trained voice to bear on some of the most incendiary soul music of the Sixties. Born in Alabama but raised in Detroit, he began singing in a local gospel-harmony group called The Violinaires. In 1959, he crossed over into secular music and joined The Falcons. In addition to Pickett, The Falcons included future soul stars Eddie Floyd and Sir Mack Rice.

    • This collector’s edition presents a wide selection of those early recordings Wilson Pickett cut between 1957 and 1962 – as a soloist artist, or with The Falcons, The Violinaires or The Spiritual Five. This material was issued by different small labels such as Correc-Tone, Cub, Double-L and Lupine.

    Soul staples like “I Found a Love,” “If You Need Me” (covered by The Rolling Stones), and “It’s Too Late” were all R&B hits for the singer before he hooked up with Atlantic Records.

    Some of these recordings aren’t available on other collections, nor have these seminal tunes ever been previously compiled on one CD. Although he eventually went on to greater commercial success in the mid- and late ‘60s, all of these remastered gems form the building blocks of Wilson Pickett’s musical legacy.
