Rob Fraboni: A Legendary Producer’s Playlist

It’s not every day you create a playlist based on a person’s career. That’s exactly what we did with our Rob Fraboni playlist.

As you recall (or maybe not), Rob is part of the Timbreo team. If you’ve never heard of Rob, the playlist speaks volumes about his accomplishments in the music industry.

While the list represents only a small portion of Rob’s work, the Producer Rob Fraboniplaylist does indicate how Rob is woven through rock and roll’s historical fabric.

We dropped in a few surprises. After all, a playlist with nothing more the Dylan, The Band, Rolling Stones, and Keith Richards fills out damn fast, but we wanted to show you more of Rob’s work.

So, we start off with Dylan, The Stones, and The Band. Throw in a little Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt, and Emmylou Harris. Sprinkle in Eric Clapton, Bob Marley, and Beach Boys and you have a legendary playlist forming.

More Playlist Highlights:

  • Keith Richard’s cover of Hank William’s classic, You Win Again, sits at track 6. The track, recorded in Keith Richard’s basement, took a minimal approach in an imperfect room. Rob says about the recording, “The thing about You Win Again that’s really interesting is this. This is one of the things about how Keith works that’s really part of his brilliance. It’s all instinctive. I shouldn’t say that like an authority, but I think so. He has a thing where he’ll play a song once or twice and then he’ll say, “Okay, that’s enough. We don’t want to chase this thing down the road. Let’s just let it rest and we’ll come back to it.” The song appeared on Timeless: Hank Williams Tribute album which won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Country Album.
  • Rob did quite a bit of work with Joe Cocker, including the classic You Are So Beautiful (track 22). One of Rob’s best stories comes from the time Joe Cocker met his idol, Ray Charles. Rob says, “Joe idolized Ray Charles. I don’t mean he liked him – he idolized him. He gets in the room and grabs Ray and before he can get a word out of his mouth, Ray Charles says, “I’ve waited a long time for this.” It’s a touching story.
  • A personal favorite of mine, Tonio K’s debut album, Life In The Foodchain, was one of 1979’s most talked about records. Rolling Stone Magazine music critic Tom Carson said, “Here’s a record that grabs you by the lapels and shakes you right from the start—and the pace never lets up.” Tonio K said “We have everything but the kitchen sink on this record”. One thing for sure, this album bites hard and drips with satirical venom. The playlist features two songs, Funky Western Civilization, and the completely over-the-top, H-A-T-R-E-D. There’s quite a story behind H-A-T-R-E-D and the AK-47 firing at the song’s end.

That wraps up this list. Feel free to pass it around.

One more thing. Don’t forget, we’re crowdfunding Musicolony and Timbreo right now. We’d love to have you as part of this exciting project.
