Producer/musician Jim Dickinson dies at 67
Sad to hear that Jim Dickinson, who worked with everyone from Aretha Franklin and Sam and Dave to Big Star and the Replacements, died in Memphis this weekend, due to complications following bypass surgery.
Famed for preferring taste over talent, Dickinson's instincts as a producer and player were usually spot on, and his work graces more enduring records than I can count. Third/Sister Lover and Pleased to Meet Me will be getting spins today for sure. Teenage Head too, if I can find my copy. You can read an Associated Press obit here.
