    I'm just going to add a couple not mentioned so far,

    Dave Jerdan, responsible for the first Jane's Addiction, and more importantly first couple of Alice in Chains.
    He got a bit disillusioned after spending a long time working on an album for a band called Violets Demise, which was finished but not released by the record company, a couple of tracks exist online, and it is an interesting example of a band that could have been massive, Oni Logan and Rowan Robertson, and a weird mix of AIC / Cult psychedelia.

    Andy Wallace, for his early production of Walk this Way, and a few things like White Zombie and Jeff Buckley, before seeming to give up on production and concentrate on mixing, almost everything put out since the 90's, seriously.
    Nevermind and a go on Chinese Democracy are definite highlights.
    Magic ears there.

    Bob Ezrin.   He co-wrote Detroit Rock City, a very fine rock song.

    Joe Baresi - Clutch, QOTSA, Kyuss, Tool
    Robert John Lange - Great work on Hysteria by Def Leppard 
    Robert Rich - Ambient/new age producer 
    Bob Rock - A divisive figure, but he did a great job on the Black Album. Also The Cult's Sonic Temple.
    Chris Kimsey - Night time by Killing Joke. Always loved the atmosphere on that record. 
    Eddie Kramer - Hendrix, Zeppelin....

    Grace is the fine album it is because of Andy Wallace. The 20th anniversary edition of Grace includes a 20 minute DVD documentary of how Grace was made. Very interesting in how he set things up to make life easy for the artist. It worked.

    I'd say Martin Hannett, responsible for the sound of Joy Division (& many others) at Factory Records through the late 70's-early 80's.

    There were just 2 albums I bought that really wowed me for production - Peter Gabriel So and Kate Bush Hounds of love. I thought that they both sounded AMAZING on release. KB seems less perfect to me now on account of programmed drums, but still a great album.

    I hated the production of Soundgarden's Superunknown when I bought it. Could have sounded 200% better to me.

    Phil Spector, despite his erm, 'peculiarities'.
    Also Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys & the man that made me buy a Tom Jones record o  Ethan Johns.

    Gotta say I'm completely the other way with Hannett, I think he was a talentless chancer who ruined some records that could have been great. Listen to any Joy Division bootleg and it's obvious they were a massively powerful live band. The album just sounds really gutless. I guess he gave it an atmosphere but it could have been so much better.

    Sam Taylor, who produced the first four King's X albums and the first two Galactic Cowboys albums.  I think the splits were fairly acrimonious, and no doubt there were issues on all sides, but neither band's been as good since.
