Bosses at the fabled Capitol Records building in LosI do hope that it turns out the fears of Capitol Records are unwarranted. I would hate to think that the acoustics of this legendary studio, where musical greats like Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and a host of others recorded such classic albums, would be damaged or ruined in any way. I've often imagined what it would be like to have been in that studio while Dino was there recording some tunes. If I had lived in that era, I would have taken a job sweeping the floors just to be there.
Angeles have lost their battle to prevent a developer from going ahead with a condominium project just across the street.
Capitol bigwigs feared the building work next to
their famous headquarters would wreck "echo chambers" created in the basement by guitar great Les Paul.
Artists like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin used the
fabled recording space and raved about the acoustics.
But city of Los Angeles officials have dismissed
the opposition, insisting the development can go ahead but those behind the planned condominium building must provide measures ensuring the recording studios are not damaged.
The developers have pledged to use equipment tailored to reducing noise and vibrations.
