TO THE MANOR BORN
For those with an interest in recording tech, there's a website devoted to classic studios:
For Strawbs fans, of interest particularly is Richard Branson's The Manor - where Two Weeks Last Summer, Deep Cuts and bits of Ghosts were recorded, as well as the King Earl Boogie Band album Trouble At t'Mill (featuring Lambert, produced by Cousins).
Also of interest:
Air Studios (From the Witchwood)
Morgan & Island (Grave New World)
Sarm Studios (rehearsal/audition for John Hawken)
