That's from Castro's "Gratitude" CD, which is composed entirely of great song by people who influenced him.  (It's MY favorite Tommy Castro Cd...)

  The best song I've ever heard Tommy Castro do was a cover of Wilson's "I
  Found a Love" from his days in the Falcons (with Sir Mack Rice).  That is a
  great song that is not done often enough, imo.  Pickett's a homie, by the
  way, from one of Montgomery's suburbs.

  I always thought that "In The Midnight Hour" was his breakthrough hit, 
  but I guess that dancers would prefer the beat on MS. "Don't Let The 
  Green Grass Fool You" was another one of his hits that is covered a lot.

  Speaking of covers, Wilson Pickett himself had a huge hit with The 
  Beatles' "Hey Jude", but with a Muscle Shoals flavor to it featuring 
  Duane Allman on guitar.
