Picks and Pans Review: The Midnight Hour
For all his good qualities, old Razzy is not the most soulful character around, so the title song of this album—the 1965 Wilson Pickett hit—seems like a mistake. It's as if, say, Eddy Grant decided to record the Beer Barrel Polka. The rest of the album is vintage Bailey, the sound of a rough, gruff, macho man who is a pussycat at heart. When Your Heart's Been Stepped On, which Bailey wrote with Royce Porter, and Midtown Motel Midday Matinee Blues, by Johnny Slate and Douglas Gilmore, kind of sum up the tone of things. (RCA)
