180g Audiophile Vinyl!

In Philadelphia is the eleventh studio album by Wilson Pickett released in 1970. In 1970, Pickett decided to move with the times and headed to Philadelphia to work with Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. The result was Wilson Pickett In Philadelphia.

It may not have seemed like an ideal match on paper, but in the studio the results were inspiring. Gamble and Huff kept the studio band on the good foot at all times and Pickett's always passionate and forceful performance added whatever grease that might have been missing from the Philly session cats. Good and popular songs on the album are "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You," "Get Me Back On Time," and "Help The Needy."

The album reached number 12 on the soul albums chart in the United States. "Engine Number 9" (the long version includes the massive drum break) charted at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 on the R&B Singles chart. Amongst others, credits go to Ron Baker, Roland Chambers, Ugene Dozier, and Bobby Eli.
