Bob Johnston, who produced Bob Dylan's celebrated "Blonde on Blonde" album and Johnny Cash's live "At Folsom Prison" in a career spanning more than 50 years, has died at age 83.

The producer died on Friday in a Nashville hospice, said Charlie McCoy, a veteran studio musician who often worked with him.



Johnston worked with Dylan on several albums in Nashville, most notably "Blonde on Blonde." The 1966 album's opening track, "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35," achieved notoriety for its repeated phrase: "Everybody must get stoned."



Rolling Stone magazine ranks "Blonde on Blonde" as the ninth greatest album of all time.
