Willie Mitchell - The Champion (Part 1)



Willie "Papa Willie" Mitchell (March 23, 1928 – January 5, 2010) was an American soul, R&B, rock and roll, pop and funk music producer and arranger who ran Royal Recording in Memphis, Tennessee. He was best known for his Hi Records label of the 1970s, which released albums by a large stable of popular Memphis soul artists, including Mitchell himself, Al Green, Syl Johnson and Ann Peebles. Willie is often credited as being the creator of the so often to be-copied and instantly recognizable Hi sound (churning organ fills, sturdy horn arrangements, a steady 4/4 drumbeat, etc.). Mitchell died in Memphis January 5, 2010, two months before his 82nd birthday.
