Bob Marley's Studio Stay



Bob Marley's Studio Stay

A legendary Studio that Bob Marley lived at for a year

Location: 8-10 Basing Street, Notting Hill, W11 1ET

Description: 'SARM Studios' (formerly known as SARM West Studios) is a recording studio located in Notting Hill.

The studios were established by Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records, and were originally known as Basing Street Studios. It has also been known in the past as Island Studios.

Set within an old church that had been deconsecrated, Blackwell recorded a number of artists there for Island Records, such as Bob Marley, Roxy Music, Sparks, Cat Stevens, King Crimson and Jethro Tull.

The studios were also used by notable non-Island Records acts, such as The Clash, the Depeche Mode, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Joan Armatrading.

In 1970, two famous albums were recorded at the studios at the same time: Led Zeppelin's 'Led Zeppelin IV' and Jethro Tull's Aqualung. Similarly, Bob Marley & The Wailers and the Rolling Stones were in the studios at the same time at one point in 1973.

Marley also lived for a year in an upstairs apartment at SARM, and his personal chef cooked at SARM for most of the 1980s.

Queen booked the studios in summer 1977 and recorded part of their album 'News of the World' there, including the hit 'We Are the Champions'. Also the cathedral organ on George Michael's album Faith was played there.

In November 1984, Studio 1 at Sarm West was the venue for the recording of 'Do They Know It's Christmas' by the members of Band Aid in support of relief efforts for the 19841985 famine in Ethiopia.
