Mitchell

Musician, arranger and of course, producer – soul legend Willie Mitchell passed away this week, but left a legacy of great tunes behind.

We could write a tribute, but the Caught By The River site has already done it, so let us redirect you to that particular page for the lowdown. He'll be sorely missed.

Willie Mitchell on Caught By The River

    Last night I saw Al Green in his first live performance in Australia, a free concert in the The Domain park as part of the Sydney Festival.

    Al was in fine vocal form and sang a great many of the favourites (Lets Stay Together, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, Take Me To The River etc.) that the enormous crowd came for, dancing in the summer night heat. To learn this morning that his long-time producer and co-writer had died earlier this week makes the concert memory more poignant.
