The man behind the classic sound of Al Green, Memphis producer and soulmeister supreme Willie Mitchell
has passed on
. Many of the Al Green sides are legendary, of course, and very well known (as is the fantastic "I Can't Stand the Rain, by Ann Peebles), but be sure and head over to the excellent Funky 16 Corners
where you can hear three of his lesser-known but deeply
grooving productions. Fat stuff. So long, Willie Mitchell, and thanks for the wonderful music.
