Willie Mitchell

Here's some happiness for your old man winter blues wherever you are. Cheer up, you're almost through it. Mr. Mitchell is here to save you. Willie unfortunately passed away recently, I've been listening to him- digging through the vast amount of grooves he blessed us with. I'm going to give you three of my favorites, and two are covers of unlikely tracks that he distinctly made his own. First is his cover of the Young Rascal's "Groovin'" from the album above. Most of you will recognize it immediately due to the fact it is one of the most seminal samples of all time used by the Wu. Next is the track "20-75" which is rich with style and Willie's signature touch. Lastly is a cover of Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" that is infectious to say the least...
