Jim Malloy, the Nashville recording engineer who worked with Elvis in the late 60s died last week. Jim Malloy was born in Dixon, Illinois in 1931 and in his career worked with dozens of greats, including Elvis Presley, Duke Ellington, Johnny Cash, Henry Mancini and Mahalia Jackson. Malloy originally worked alongside Chet Atkins in Nashville but truly began his work with Elvis when Felton Jarvis started as Elvis' producer on his May 1966 'How Great Thou Art' sessions. The Tennessean reported that Elvis called him the "best engineer anywhere as far as I'm concerned". Malloy also worked on the 'Guitar Man', 'Clambake' & 'You'll Never Walk Alone' sessions
