Some Sunday Soul Numerology
He's a man for his numbers is Mr Wilson Pickett
Nine-Nine and One-Half (Won't Do) and The Midnight Hour have previously graced these pages.
Not content with that today he is giving us 634-5789 (Soulsville USA) a song written by Eddie Floyd and Steve Cropper. I wonder if this number has any significance - a telephone number perhaps?
We then head to the Land of 1000 Dances written by Chris Kenner. Sometimes Fats Domino gets a co-writer credit part of the deal when he agreed to record the song for half the royalties.
We'll save Soul Dance Number Three for a later date
Wilson Pickett - 634-5789 (Soulsville USA)
