What producer with what artist? What prompts this thread is producer Mark Hudson (Hudson Brothers) has produced Ringo's latest album. Jeff Lynne produced Paul McCartney's "Flaming Pie". Which producer hooked up with which artist might make for a dream album, or might give the particular artist a creative kick in the pants? On a side note, does anyone know why Gary Katz did not work with Steely Dan on their last two albums?
