The JB List | Producer Bob Ezrin's Greatest Hits

Early this week Phish departed Atlantic City, where they finished an extremely successful fall tour, to head to Nashville. The band is currently in the studio with famed producer Bob Ezrin to lay down tracks from an album due next year tentatively titled Wingsuit.

The Vermonters debuted 12 tracks under consideration for Wingsuit on Halloween in Atlantic City as this year's "musical costume." As per the Playbill that was handed out to fans, the band wanted to play the new songs to "get them dirty and mess them up a little before we record them." One of the many surprises revealed on Halloween night is that Ezrin would produce the new Phish album. Bob Ezrin has a storied career in the music industry and we wanted to detail a number of his greatest efforts for this week's B List.

Pink Floyd - The Wall

Yes, Ezrin co-produced one of the greatest albums in the history of rock with James Guthrie, David Gilmour and Roger Waters. Floyd's eleventh album was released as a double- LP on November 30, 1979 and contains much-beloved songs such as "Comfortably Numb," "Mother" and "Young Lust." The album stemmed from a conversation Waters had with Ezrin and one of Ezrin's friends at the end of the In The Flesh Tour about how Rog was feeling alienated on tour. The Wall sold over 23 million units in the 20th Century.

Alice Cooper - School's Out

Cooper once referred to Ezrin as "our George Martin" as the producer lent his talents to a number of Alice's studio works. School's Out, released in 1972, is among Cooper's greatest albums and the title track is still a staple of classic rock radio to this day.
