Willie Mitchell

So sorry to hear about Willie Mitchell's passing. His personal web site has links to many news stories and tributes to him (see the Facebook page for example):

I really love this NPR interview with Willie and Al Green -- the link shows us some of Willie's genius in working with Al for months until he got the sound he was looking for. A truly gifted and giving man!

    Oh, NO!!! Willie Mitchell was one of the great names of Memphis music.

    He worked with many of the Memphis Boys in their early days at Hi,and his work with Al Green will live forever.

    God.. I'm in shock. What a loss to music.
