IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR by WILSON PICKETT

Album: In The Midnight Hour
Released: 1965
Charted:
21
12


Picket had his first success with a song called "I Found a Love," which he wrote and performed with his group The Falcons in 1962. That song reached #75 on the Hot 100, and two years later Atlantic Records signed him to a solo deal. His first single with the label, "Come Home Baby" was recorded in New York with producer Bert Berns, and it went nowhere. For a change of sound and scenery, Atlantic sent him to Memphis to record his next single at Stax Records (which had a distribution deal with Atlantic) using their house band. These sessions produced "In The Midnight Hour," which became Pickett's breakout hit. He went on to become a soul music legend and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.
In this song, Picket is waiting till midnight to meet his girl for a romantic rendezvous. It's not clear if he's doing it at that hour to stay undetected, or if it's just more romantic. Either way, his love will come tumbling down.
Pickett wrote this with guitarist Steve Cropper, who wrote and produced many of the soul classics for Stax Records. Cropper played guitar on the Stax session band, Booker T. and The MGs.

Cropper recalled to Uncut in 2015: "I say in my shows that playing the guitar is real simple, you just follow the dots - the dots on neck on every guitar are in the same place. That's how I came up with the intro for this. They go, It couldn't be that simple,' then all of them go home and get their guitars out and go, 'Wow, it is!'"
Cropper and Pickett wrote this at the Lorraine Motel, which was located near the Stax studios in Memphis. On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was shot there while standing on the balcony.
The title came from something Steve Cropper heard Wilson singing on one of his gospel tracks. Said Cropper: "Wilson says he wrote the song but, you know, I listened to some old church stuff he sang on and he was singing 'See my Jesus in the midnight hour, see my Jesus in the midnight hour," over and over, and I said, 'I'm gonna see my girl in the midnight hour,' what about that?'"
This was produced by Jerry Wexler with Steve Cropper, Al Jackson and Donald "Duck" Dunn from the Stax house band Booker T. & the MG's playing on the track (keyboard player Booker T. Jones didn't participate in the session). Booker T. and The MGs played on many soul classics, and even had a hit of their own with "Green Onions" in 1962, and they also backed up Pickett's hero Otis Redding on many tracks.

The personnel on this track was:

Guitar: Steve Cropper
Drums: Al Jackson
Bass: Donald "Duck" Dunn
Piano: Joe Hall
Tenor Sax: Andrew Love, Charles Axton
Baritone Sax: Floyd Newman
Trumpet: Wayne Jackson

Atlantic Records gave Pickett the nickname "The Wicked Pickett" after this was released. They used it to promote him, claiming he got it because of his prowess with the ladies. Pickett lived up to the nickname - he spent some time in jail and struggled with drug use before his death in 2006 at age 64.

Pickett also recorded "99 1/2" and "634-5789" at the Stax Studios, with backing by Booker T. and the MG's and the horns by the Bar-Kays.
When Pickett and Booker T and the MG's first tried to record the song, nobody liked the result - then Wexler had the idea to change the rhythm so that the teenagers could dance The Jerk, which was a big dance craze at the time. To do this, Wexler had the rhythm section stress the "two" beat, which simulated the dance. Wexler also demonstrated the dance, which the band found amusing.

In 1991, this was used in the movie The Commitments, which was about an Irish band who played the songs of American soul singers. The movie helped introduce Pickett's music to a new audience.

In 1991, this was used in the movie The Commitments, which was about an Irish band who played the songs of American soul singers. The movie helped introduce Pickett's music to a new audience.His final single of 1968 was a cover of “Hey Jude”, the Beatles’ current smash, an epic, shrieking vocal, an incendiary guitar solo by young Southern longhair Duane Allman. “Funky Broadway” had been the first chart record to include this new adjective & the leading lights of Soul were introducing innovatory sounds as the 60s ended. Pickett’s muscular cover versions of rock classics, “Born To Be Wild”, “Hey Joe”, seemed a little obvious at the time. Now they sound like psycho-soul juggernauts, heck even “Sugar Sugar”, a bubblegum song I really do not like, sounds good.
