As a teenager, Alabama-born Wilson Pickett toured America singing gospel music on church tours. In 1959 he made the move to secular music by joining The Falcons, and had a minor hit with them in 1962 with "I Found A Love". Pickett signed a solo deal with Atlantic in 1964, and his third single "In The Midnight Hour" (1965) was a big hit, reaching No. 21 in the US pop charts and No.12 in the UK. It is now remembered as a soul standard, and Pickett's signature tune.
