Thanks for making some of the greatest music ever made suitable for sharing...making the best even better. Tom Dowd was such a large part of everything special the Brothers put together. My thoughts are with his immediate and extended family, and I'm thankful for his contributions to the world of music.

Just like Duane, Berry, and many other greats, we will miss Tom Dowd, but we will always have what he gave to us with his life's work.

Obit in winter 2003 issue of Southern Cross' the Dog: The Official Publication of the Blues Foundation, of Memphis. The website is at

Tom Dowd, 77, October 27th [2002] in Aventura, Florida. An incredibly prolific producer, Dowd was an integral part of the Atlantic Records hit machine in the '60s and '70s and the man behind the soundboard on classic soul and blues recordings by Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, LaVern Baker, Big Joe Turner, Mose Allison, Solomon Burke, Dr. John, Freddie King, Otis Redding, Dusty Springfield, and Buddy Guy.

As a teenager during World War II, Dowd was employed as an assistant on the Manhattan Project but left when he learned his work experience would not count toward his degree. He was working as an audio engineer in 1947, when he came to the attention of Ahmet Ertegun and Atlantic Records. Besides his numerous technical innovations--he converted Atlantic to eight-track recording long before any other label--Dowd was renowned for his unerring ear and musical taste.

His other production credits include classic albums by the Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, . . . , Cream, and John Coltrane.

His contribution to @ Fillmore East can not be overstated.
