LOS ANGELES (Billboard) – Neither age (a youthful 79, thank you) nor health setbacks (cataract surgery a couple of days before this interview took place) can keep a good music man down. Just ask Willie Mitchell. He’s the same Willie Mitchell who wrote and produced Al Green’s 1972 hit “Let’s Stay Together” and went on to produce six more No. 1 R&B hits, an accomplishment shared by such illustrious colleagues as Marvin Gaye, Berry Gordy Jr. and Barry White.

Mitchell’s latest project is the relaunch of his Waylo Records label. Having secured distribution through Select-O-Hits, Mitchell is busy getting the word out about the label’s first release, “Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere.”
