Iconic Ocean Way Studio sold

Bobby Owsinski:

Ocean Way has a long history in the music world. Starting as one of the first independent recording studios in 1957, the studio was called United (then later United Western) and was originally owned by audio pioneer Bill Putnam (inventor of the UREI line of audio gear) with the backing of superstars of the day Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.

Some of the best albums in the world were recorded at Ocean Way. I visited the studio a couple of times and it is an amazing place — I hope they keep it open, not only for recording, but because of its historic significance.
