Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Don Dixon (born December 13, 1950) is a record producer, songwriter, musician, bass guitarist, and very occasional actor. He is originally from South Carolina. Don Dixon was born on December 13, 1950 in Lancaster, South Carolina. His college roommate was the writer Bruce Brooks. Dixon is considered to be one of the key producers of what is called the jangle pop movement of the early 1980s. He spent thirteen years as a member of North Carolina cult heroes Arrogance. Around 1983, Dixon attracted attention by co-producing with Mitch Easter, R.E.M.'s landmark debut LP Murmur and in 1984 R.E.M.'s follow-up LP "Reckoning," also with Mitch Easter (both credited in the Reckoning liner notes as "Machinists"). He then spent several years producing the work of varied artists including Chris Stamey (formerly of The dB's), The Smithereens, Fetchin Bones and Richard Barone. Considered to be a highlight of this period was Tommy Keene's Run Now EP.show more
