Jimmy Page.

He may have only been renowned for producing one band.......but listen to what he did with it. The Zepp sound WAS Page....no doubt about it.

The albums that Steven Wilson and Brendan O'Brien produce usually turn out to be my favorite. Wilson really knows his stuff when it comes to mixing

I'm a huge Butch Vig fan. It doesn't hurt that he's also a drummer with the same taste in drum sounds as myself!

Not sure if he's my favorite, but one of my favorites is Steve Albini...not only because he's produced some great albums from great artists (Nirvana, The Jesus Lizard, Pixies, Helmet, Don Caballero, and many more), but because of his old-school, minimalist recording philosophy. Many other producers spend so much time getting "the perfect sound" for each instrument, and then take days to get "the perfect take" for each song. Not Steve Albini. He just sticks the band in a room with some mics. If the band sounds good in the room, then the recording will sound good.

Totally agree with everyone so far. Whoever did Dark Side of the Moon, Graham Parsons I think?

Simon Phillips has mean production skills IMO. Of course, his drumming is celebrated, but he's less well known for his production work. Nick Kershaw is the consummate pop producer for me.

Name dropping a couple of big ones here; Tom Dowd and Phil Spector. Page for sure.

On a relevant side note I'm really diggin' Ski Beatz as well. He's a hip hop producer, that recently did an album. A lot of the samples he used on it weren't able to be cleared in time or at all by the record labels. So he took the samples, did some really off keel things with them (the kind of audio processing that doesn't get done too often in hip hop anymore), and then had a band (the Senseis) learn and play the samples on the album. By the way this is the direction hip hop is going in. It's actually costing more to clear samples than hire live musicians.

+1, produced System of a Down's and Rage Against the Machine's albums.

A raw production style, nothing over-the-top.

I'm aware of only a few, George Martin (if you don't know him, you just arrived on the planet, where's your papers?) Chas Chandler is another. Here's one I took notice of right from get-go back in the day, Eddy Offord. http://nfte.org/interviews/EO234.html

Don't know how anyone, especially the hip-hop guys, haven't mentioned Quincy Jones.

In addition to him and in no particular order:

Questlove
Chas Chandler
Q-Tip
J Dilla
Gary Katz
Stevie Wonder
Irving Townsend
Frank Zappa

*EDIT*

My bad. I just noticed toddy mentioned Quincy.
