Wilson Pickett, Jackie Moore: Copacabana, NYC

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, March 1972

CAN YOU imagine seeing Wilson Pickett at the Talk of the Town in London, complete with middle-aged folks having a night out, coach parties from little towns where they've probably never even heard of Pickett. Well, that's the way it was when Pickett came into New York's Copacabana, that city's answer to our Talk of the Town.
