    I think it was hard for most of the American staffers to believe that Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham were really leaving their employ. After all, they had played such a significant role as songwriters, studio musicians and producers, and yet remained so far in the background, that their influence seemed to be built into the very walls of the ramshackle space.

Chips Moman and Don Crews still ran the place – sometimes with an aloof demeanor that annoyed the original players – while musicians Tommy Cogbill, Reggie Young, Bobby Emmons, Gene Chrisman and Mike Leech still reported to work, turning out hits like a wartime factory turning out rifles.
