For Christmas 1978, my father announced that
he would help me make a studio in the basement - "The right way". All
through January we worked on the walls and ceiling in the basement
to make "Music Lab".
I used the money I earned from my Wurlitzer job
to constantly upgrade the equipment. It went from a two track,
to four track, to eight track studio in just over one year.
was through this intensive experience that I landed the position
of Chief Engineer at TRC Studios.
The highlight of the Music Lab clientele was
undoubtedly the Kenny Edmonds (a.k.a. BabyFace) sessions. We recorded about 7 of
his songs over a two month period.
I never achieved that level of recording at Music Lab again.
