Liane speaks with legendary soul singer Wilson Pickett about his new record "It's Harder Now." (Bullseye Blues and Jazz 11661-9625-2). Wilson Pickett rocked dance floors around the world with various hits in the 1960s and 70s including "Midnight Hour," "Mustang Sally," "6-3-4-5-7-8-9" and a soulful rendition of The Beatles' hit "Hey Jude." He is still busy performing live, but "It's Harder Now" is his first studio recording in 12 years.
