Soul shaker Wilson Pickett delivered one of his most versatile recordings in 1968 with the release of The Midnight Mover. Produced by the legendary Tom Dowd, the album features Pickett’s signature growl and effortless blend of rock and soul. The album peaked in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top R&B Albums. Included are the outstanding ballads, “It’s A Groove,” “Trust Me,” and “Down By The Sea.” Truly one of his funkiest releases, the album is a pivotal collection of astounding gems by the soul innovator.

The Midnight Mover, issued in 1968, was one of a pair of albums Wilson Pickett issued that year produced by the mighty Tom Dowd. The title track, a signature growler, was written by Wilson with Bobby Womack. The other includes "I Found a True Love," issued earlier in two parts on 1967's The Sound of Wilson Pickett. Womack wrote about half the set. The Midnight Mover is one of the more diverse offerings of Pickett's from the 1960s. It contains the roughshod soul of the title cut, and in his bizarre, psycho soul performance of "Deborah," the intro and verse of which are sung in Italian! There are also brilliant ballad performances in "It's a Groove," "Down by the Sea," and "Trust Me." Add to this the set closer, the gospel-driven "For Better or Worse." There is also the deep, funky, rock-drenched, snake-hipped anthem "We Got to Get an Understanding." While The Sound of Wilson Pickett is his classic of the decade, The Midnight Mover is simply a monster of an album. --AllMusic Review by Thom Jurek
