Abbey Road, October 2013

I was at a session in Abbey Road Studio 1 a couple weeks back. Wandering the halls, I ran into (the) J37 No. 1, a TG12345 console, and an old BTR 2/3 stereo recorder - all just sitting there, able to be touched, caressed, revered... Anywhere else, they would be under glass with a "do not touch" sign on them, but I just had to feel the buttons, throw the faders, etc...

Felt like Home

My first visit to abbey road left a number of first impressions on me.
1. It looked just like someone house, with lots of Beatles related graffiti on the front wall..
2. Much like the Tardis its much much bigger on the inside..
3. Classic recording gear fill both the rooms and the hallways (much like my studio home at the time Capitol Studios)..
4. The most excited and happy staff I had experienced in a studio in years...
5. It is easy to see why Abbey Road studios remains one of the worlds greatest. It is an absolute class act!
