The Town Houses Studio 2 was even immortalised on celluloid when it appeared in Bob Dylans Hearts Of Fire film.

Sweet were the first artists to record here.

Queens Roger Taylor recalls the accommodating nature of its staff. I remember when we were there, Freddy [Mercury] insisted the ladies loo be widened to allow for the ample proportions of Monserrat Caballe,
known in Spain as la stupenda, he says.
