Elektra Studio B 1972

Does anyone know what mixing console was used in Elektra Records' (on La Cienega in L.A.) Studio B in 1972? I did some work there in the summer of '72. This was the same studio that was used for recording The Doors and Bread. Studio A had an API mixing console.

I believe it was a Sound Techniques desk
as in Trident and Sound Techniques studios in London../

Elektra Sound Recorders, Studio B, had a Sound Techniques A Range console from from when the studio was opened in 1968 thru mid 1974.

Just a note the link on the post above incorrectly shows a Trident A range. This is different from the Sound Techniques A range that was at Elektra.
