This reissue of Wilson Pickett's 1967 classic album comes complete with beautifully remastered sound. Naturally, everything that was so fantastic about the original album--Pickett's gritty soul shouts, that famed Muscle Shoals sound--more than stands up decades later. With Pickett's definitive version of "Funky Broadway" abutting soul gems like "I Found A Love (Pts. I and II)," SOUND OF is not only one of the R&B sensation's strongest and most consistent efforts, it is one of the true soul classics of the era.
