    Don't think I saw anyone mention Holland-Dozier-Holland, yet.

    Check out their body of work:

    My tastes are UK not US centric -Roy Wood, between the Move, ELO, and his solo efforts was quite a talent

    (although interestingly fellow Brummie Denny Laine was perhaps the1st to try to assemble a rock orchestra, including the raver Viv Prince)

    Wood shared an obsessive tendency to clone the Spector style with Wilson and Andrew Oldham , spending endless hours like Phil on singles tracks

    Jan Berry, prior to his accident, was IMO crafting records that were as novel as his friend Wilson

    Like him or not, Lou Reed has an incredible catalog. I think he's one of the great tunesmiths.

    yes; you're talking about the first go for ELO; they were great. When Jeff Lynne took over they got a polished Hollywood/FM AOR sound.

    I prefer the first one.

    Don't know if he counts as a great song-writer but just watched the amazing documentary on the singer Sixto Rodriguez, Searching for Sugarman, up for an oscar, well worth tracking down.
