Willie Mitchell Dead at 81
Sad news from Testify overnight that Willie Mitchell had passed away. In Testify's words; "Born in Mississippi in 1928. Willie's greatest success came after he signed to Hi Records in 1962 where, along with having recording cool instrumentals such as '20-75', he produced some of the finest southern soul ever pressed on vinyl by artists such as Ann Peebles, Syl Johnson, Otis Clay and, of course, Al Green."
My thanks to Testify for alerting me to his passing and the summary.
