AllMusic Review by

This four-disc box collects Wilson Pickett's four late-'60s albums for Atlantic Records -- 1965's In the Midnight Hour, 1966's The Exciting Wilson Pickett and The Wicked Pickett, and 1967's The Sound of Wilson Pickett -- in one package. This means there's a fair amount of filler, but classic Pickett tracks like "In the Midnight Hour," "Land of 1000 Dances," "Ninety-Nine and a Half (Won't Do)," "Mustang Sally," and "Funky Broadway" are all here. It probably makes more sense to pick up a single-disc greatest-hits collection, which would undoubtedly contain all of these songs as well, but fans looking to be complete might find this an easy way to get Pickett's Atlantic albums in one quick swoop.
