    I grew up with vinyl and maybe for that reason have always paid great attention to who produces, engineers, etc an album. Easily reading all the credits was part of the magic of the packaging of vinyl to me. Because of that I realized early on that personally I often had favorite producer/artist combinations... combinations that often created my favorite albums by a given artist.

    Some examples:

    Def Leppard / Mutt Lange
    Alice Cooper / Bob Ezrin
    Yes / Eddie Offord
    Journey / Roy Thomas Baker
    Rush / Terry Brown
    Van Halen / Ted Templeman
    Aerosmith / Jack Douglas
    Judas Priest / Tom Allom
    Kansas / Jeff Glixman

    So the question is... Do you have the favorite combinations also? And who?

    :cheers2

    Ahh crap, a couple more I forgot about:

    Ratt - Beau Hill (I think he did their first 4 or 5 albums)
    Deep Purple - Martin Birch
    Rainbow - Martin Birch
    Whitsnake - Martin Birch
    Black Sabbath - Martin Birch

    (how the hell did I forget about Birch!? :banghead: he wasn't an producer on all of those albums for DP, Rainbow, etc, but he was either an engineer, producer, mixer or combination of the three on many of those albums )

    Bob Rock with both Motley Crue and Metallica.

    Managed to get them to focus like they never had before. In my humble opinion.
