 Wonder if this was what gave His Wicked Self the courage to later cover "Sugar Sugar" . . . ? ;)

 Many performers,when singing a Beatles song, treat it as if it's a piece of rare porcelain or a sick hedgehog.Not Pickett.None of that nah-nah nah-nanana-nah.He just goes Waaaahhhhhgggaaaahhhhhggggh.That's the way to do it.

 I understand that Duane overcame Pickett's reluctance to record a current Beatles # 1 with something along the lines of People are gonna say there's only one guy with the balls to cover Hey Jude and that's Wilson Pickett.

 In the Fall of 1968, if you were a recording artist looking for a hit record, the LAST thing you would do is a cover of the current #1 song in the US (9 weeks) by The Beatles. HOW could you top that. Wilson Pickett took another trip to Muscle Shoals, met Duane Allman who was a studio musician there and this jam happened. Eric Clapton has called this the greatest guitar solo on a r&b song. It debuted in Billboard on 12/21/68 when The Beatles version was still going strong, spent 9 weeks on the chart and peaked at #23. Here is the finale. Entire song is available also on Youtube. Enjoy classic Muscle Shoals.
