Don DeVito, a longtime Columbia Records executive and Grammy-winning producer, died Friday after fighting prostate cancer for sixteen years. He was 72. DeVito’s claim to fame was that he produced Bob Dylan’s Blood On The Track and Desire, which are considered two of Dylan’s best albums. DeVito had also worked with Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, James Taylor, and many others. He is survived by his wife and two children. Blood On The Tracks is a terrific album, and it’s a shame that part of its creator has passed away.
