The final single to enter the charts in 1971- and crack the Top 40. The Wicked Pickett.
When you see Wilson Pickett and Muscle Shoals, you pretty much know this has to be great. I also just checked the excellent original by Free, which I don’t recall having heard before. I love how Pickett turned this rock song into a soul tune, really making it his own.
I will have to check out the original by Free.
