I was there for a awhile in 1977 before it turned into RUSK Sound Studios. Some great records were made there including 2 or 3 Todd Rundgren records and some Doors stuff. the location was 1556 N Labrea. between Sunset and Hollywood blvd. The stuff i worked on there was Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators, and a group called Bubble Puppy as well as an Angry Samoans record.
The equipment was still 16 track, i beleive it was a Scully and the board was a homemade 20x8x16 with minimal eq and routing, but it sounded big. Speakers were Altec 604's with Mastering Lab crossovers.
If i remember more i will add to the post

yeah, i'm really down with those Todd records, as well as some late '60's Beach Boys stuff (when Brian was out of it, the rest of the guys opted not to record at gold star or western, i guess). i wanted to learn a little more about the making of Ballad of Todd Rundgren, Something/Anything, etc.
was james lowe engineering there still by '77? i wonder where he's at...
you were working with roky erickson??? how was THAT?!
