Wilson Pickett - Voice Your Choice

Wilson Pickett was born March 18, 1941 in Prattville, Alabama, but later grew up in Detroit, Michigan. What a soul singer! He was a member of The Falcons from 1961 to 1963 and eventually went off on his own. He signed with Atlantic Records when he teamed up with the amazing guitarist Steve Cropper, who also was a producer.

During his Atlantic years, he hit the charts an impressive 37 times, including two Top Tens smashes and also received two Gold Records.

Next on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents Wilson Pickett. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either 604-5789 (Soulsville U.S.A.) or Funky Broadway. I'll play the winner during the 3rd hour of next week;s show.
