1950’s recording engineers

Heinz, don't forget your shotgun

I was watching a documentary on Joe Meek last night and the subject of recording engineers came up (duh).  I never realized that back in the 1950’s recording engineers wore lab coats similar to what a doctor would wear. Meek was shunned based on his technique, and his “uncommon” studio set-up. The recording process was taken so seriously some 60 years ago that even when artists showed up at the London flat that housed Meek’s studio they were in awe. Shocked that so many hit records came from such a place. Watch the movie Telstar
