Editors’ Notes Wilson Pickett's raw style left an indelible imprint on soul music. Emerging in the '60s, his sweaty grooves helped establish the Memphis sound, which Al Green and producer Willie Mitchell drew upon for the gruff R&B of “I Can't Get Next to You.” The hot horns of Leon Bridges' throwback hit “Better Man,” meanwhile, show how Pickett's soulful successors keep returning to his raucous playbook for ideas.
