Me and the J37
On this area of this great site is a photo taken of me in 1985 at Abbey Road Studios in london, when I was working there on one of my albums with 2 j37 Studers. I was surprised when I saw myself included here, so I thought I would contribute a few more pics and comments on the subject. I have been a Singer/songwriter muscian and recording music for more than 30 years now. And I never had more fun than working at Abbey Road studios in Beatles studio 2 were I did many sessions from 1985 to 1995. I had the pleasure of meeting a few people who worked at the studios with The Fab and were still there in the '80s and '90s! They shared great stories with me and I got to see and use alot of the vintage gear that was used by The Beatles and many other great artists back in the day. I have put up another photo of myself with the Studer j37 taken at Abbey Road in 1993 as well as a couple of session pics, and a shot of myself with an EMI BTR Twin track recorder. This machine is what the first Beatles record was made on. The cooest thing I did over the years I recorded at Abbey Road is I got to use The Beatles u47 mics they personally used on their sessions when I did mine. It was amazing. Thanks for allowing me to share and Thanks!!!
