Hi Geri,

Fell about laughing . . .

"Tubular Bells" (and many, many other records) were done at "The Manor", a converted country mansion residential studio owned by Herr (What cheque?) Branson in the wilds of central Oxfordshire, not very far away (<50km?) from GBR. "Bells" was if not the first, very close to the first, record made there; in younger spottier days I worked for the company that built the mixer. The studio was in the shambolic throes of construction, gear heaped everywhere, if you could negotiate around the resident and nosey Great
Danes. Ground loops everywhere.
I can confirm this sort of thing. I once spent weeks trying to get Radio
Moscow (SW) out of a sound mixer in Dublin. I got it to the stage where
it was just audible with full gain on everything, and there it stayed.
