Just been to a happening at Abbey Road studio #2 where Brian Kehew and Kevin Ryan, the authors of 'Recording The Beatles' held a lecture, celebrating 80 years of Abbey Road... a great chance to see some great footage, cool sounds and gain an insight into some of the techniques used by everyone from Elgar 1931 - (Land of Hope & Glory) - Beatles - Pink Floyd and more... a great chance to oggle at some original: Desks - Processors (Fairchild) - Instruments (Beatles Tack piano - Celeste Great sounding Bell piano - (Beatles also Floyd - Dark side) (plus several other pianos) & other original gear & of course the opportunity to climb those stairs... and also breath in the atmosphere of #2...
