Equipped with a voice as suitable for the roadhouse as is for the lord's house, Wilson Pickett was of the finest performers in the history of soul music. The legendary singer has been the focus of many a hits comp through the years, but Rhino's 2006 double-disc DEFINITIVE COLLECTION, released shortly after the singer's death that same year, is perhaps the finest sampler around. Arranged chronologically, the set begins with the Wicked Pickett's early work with the Falcons ("I Found A Love") and continues up through his prime period on Atlantic (which produced undisputed classic like "Mustang Sally," "Ninety-Nine And A Half (Won't Do)," and "Midnight Hour," all included here) into his psyche/funk phase (check out his searing take on "Hey Jude" featuring Duane Allman on guitar), expertly showcasing the full breadth of Pickett's artistry. And one listen to his whimsical 1971 hit with Philadelphia International's Gamble & Huff, "Don't Let the Green Grass Fool You," brings a tear to the eye at the loss of this amazing soul shouter. While the single-disc VERY BEST OF remains an excellent purchase, DEFINITIVE COLLECTION is everything the title claims and a fitting tribute to one of the great ones.
