5. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Elvis Costello[/lastfm] - King of America (1986):
One of several people to be credited as a producer on this record (including Declan Patrick Aloysius MacManus himself), it was the fourth Costello album that included Burnett’s participation as player and producer.
4. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Roy Orbison[/lastfm] - Black and White Night Live (1989):
An All-Star night, one of the best rock concert films ever made.
3. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Counting Crows[/lastfm] - August and Everything After (1994):
As debut albums go, they don’t get much bigger than this, a Burnett production masterpiece.
2. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gillian Welch[/lastfm] - Revival (1996):
There’s hardly a Gillian Welch record that’s not considered atop every yearly list, every genre list, every singer’s list; it only make sense it would also be considered one of Burnett’s best.
1. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Los Lobos[/lastfm] - How Will the Wolf Survive (1984):
The album that put the Lobos on the map. Mark Deming of AllMusic said that Brunett’s production shows “the band’s exemplary taste, musical smarts, and road-tested maturity in evidence on every cut.”
