My condolences to family and friends of Jimmy Johnson. Jimmy was a member of the famed Muscle Shoals Swampers rhythm section. I first met Jimmy when I was in Muscle Shoals mixing James Peterson'sPreaching the Blues album for Malaco Records. When Jimmy came by the studio we sat and talked at great length about sessions he had either played on or engineered. Great musician, engineer and human being! He will be missed. We have lost a giant!
