Poppa Willie: The Hi Years 1962-74


Categories: , , , Tags: ,


A two-disc, 51-song set, with one disc devoted to Mitchell originals and one to covers he made between 1962 and 1974. This is an extensive collection of trumpeter/producer Mitchell’s dance-inducing, funky brand of soul music. Like fellow instrumentalists of the day — Booker T., Jr. Walker, King Curtis, and the JBs — Mitchell was helping to define a groove that created some of the best instrumental soul ever made.
