The Bob Dylan Examiner reports that Columbia Records A&R executive and record producer Don DeVito has died.
“DeVito is most known to Bob Dylan fans for his production of the 1976 album, Desire. He co-produced the live albums Hard Rain and At Budokan, was “Captain In Charge” (and behind the remix of the 1999 reissue) on the 1978 album Street Legal, and produced the “concert audio” for The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration. He also worked on various compilations and archival projects, and was thanked on the album, Dylan & The Dead. DeVito has even been described as Dylan’s publicist.”
