    We can stay on the Wally Heider Studios theme with Stephen Barncard. Working on American Beauty here I think, or at least in the same shirt!

    Cool pics, can you guys name the groups these fellas are associated with engineering? Might be a nice addition to the pics.

    Leo De Gar Kulka at Golden State Recorders in San Francisco, where the Beau Brummels, the Syndicate of Sound, the Great Society, the Grateful Dead, etc. etc. recorded. Sly Stone was a house producer at GSR too.

    I got to visit Leo at the studio in the late '80s, and he was extremely nice.

    Robert Fine and his wife, Wilma Cozart, the team behind those legendary Mercury recordings at the helm of their Westrex console (ex-Everest Records), early 1960s.

    A custom made Westrex, what would it be worth now?
    Academic though as unfortunately it was scrapped.

    Another pic, Bob Fine at his Scully lathe with customized Westrex head late 1950s, powered by 200w McIntosh amps for stereo cutting.

    IF they had used this amazing sounding console to record the Beatles, life would be good.
