Top 10 Albums Produced By T-Bone Burnett

5. Elvis Costello – 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. Roy Orbison – Black and White Night Live (1989):

An All-Star night, one of the best rock concert films ever made.

3. Counting Crows – August and Everything After (1994):

As debut albums go, they don’t get much bigger than this, a Burnett production masterpiece.

2. Gillian Welch – 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. Los Lobos – 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.”
