Wilson Pickett - Mr. Magic Man: The Complete RCA Studio Recordings
etween 1964 and 1972, Wilson Pickett established himself as one of the greatest soul men of all time with a string of incendiary pop and R&B smashes. But the Wicked Pickett's scorching career didn't stop when he left Atlantic Records. Beginning with 1973's Mr. Magic Man, Pickett recorded four soulful studio albums for RCA Records, where, in an extremely productive two years, he notched his final Hot 100 hits as well as a string of R&B chart successes. Yet, Pickett's RCA discography has been all but ignored in the compact disc era. Now, Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records are proud to present the first-ever appearance on CD of all four of Wilson Pickett's sizzling, funky RCA studio platters on Mr. Magic Man: The Complete RCA Studio Recordings.
This package includes Mr. Magic Man (1973), Miz Lena's Boy (1973), Pickett in the Pocket (1974) and Join Me and Let's Be Free (1975) plus four rare, never-on-CD bonus singles to paint a full portrait of this exciting era. For these sessions, Pickett teamed with producers including Brad Shapiro, Dave Crawford and Yusuf Rahman, and recorded at legendary venues including Muscle Shoals Sound and Philadelphia's Sigma Sound Studios, where Pickett had recorded some of his most indelible Atlantic sides.
Vic Anesini at Sony's Battery Studios has remastered this first-of-it's-kind collection, while Joe Marchese has penned the liner notes. Mr. Magic Man: The Complete RCA Studio Albums adds up to 42 tracks and 148 minutes of wicked good-and wickedly rare-soul from the iconic voice of Wilson Pickett!
