For both the preservation of musical theater history and entertainment value, the producers of a Broadway or off-Broadway musical regularly commission the production of a cast album for new shows and popular revivals.

Record Plant Recording Studios

When record producer Gary Kellgren left Mayfair Studios to set up his own shop, his impressive roster of clients went with him: The early success of the Record Plant is due in large part to the support of artists like Frank Zappa.

Record Producer

Within the realm of pop music, record producers have become just as illustrious as the musicians they work with.
