Al Green producer Willie Mitchell dies aged 81

Record producer and musician Willie Mitchell, who oversaw many of soul singer Al Green's hits, has died in the US at the age of 81.

As the owner of Hi Records in Memphis, Mitchell produced Green's 1970s songs including Let's Stay Together and I'm Still In Love With You.

The pair teamed up again in 2003 after a break of 18 years for another album.

Mitchell, who suffered a heart attack two weeks ago, most recently worked with Rod Stewart on his Soulbook album.
