I don't know how much you want to say about it, but can you give me some more info? How has business been going there? Do you know the reason it's up for sale?

Thanks Pete.

He could take you to court and probably sue for damages. How they'd compute the damages, I don't know. My uncle bought a house from a guy who lived in another house across the street and, not wanting any eyesores, stipulated that my aunt & uncle could not, among other things, land aircraft on their property.

But apparently he didn't foresee them parking their tractor in their front yard.

I know for a fact that Senses Fail is recording their CD right now with Brian mcternan at bearsville. So that's weird to hear that it is for sale/closing down/whatever is going on with it.

While I might not agree that it was one of the world's best tracking rooms, there is no doub t that studio one was a really nice room.

but the barn was never anything great, in my opinion.

originally, it was were we rehearsed before moving to the 'real' studio to record.

Hi

I'll state from the opening that my knowledge on the studio could probably be written in foot high capital letters on a postage stamp....

That being said, I was under the impression that the vintage Neve console they had at Bearsville had been sold to a studio in New Zealand.

A guy emailed me and had visited that studio and described the console.

So, I'm not sure what facilities remain at the Bearsville studio.

True...Both consoles were sold...We have one, the other one went to New Zealand ( to N. Finn ).

Hi

Thanks for confirming that.

So, with the caveat that it can't be used as a studio, and both consoles gone, it doesn't seem the greatest deal, studio-wise (to quote Jack Lemmon speak).

As real estate, that may be another matter.

We're talking about Bearsville at Turtle Creek here, not the main Bearsville Studios.
It IS a full working studio, there are bands recording there right now. It has an API Legacy console.

the Barn is the studio.
It includes the house and 78 (or so) acres of land.

Hi

My apologies... I didn't realise that there were more than one Bearsville... hence my comment about the postage stamp!

Bearsville connection

I kinda got to this thread because I was looking for AKG C24 pix - I've worked on three so far this year. All the "speculation" on the Bearsville property took me back in time.

http://www.tangible-technology.com/music/mics/c24.html

I was the chief engineer at bearsville during the summer of '78, a short-lived roller-coaster ride that was full of bull**** politics enhanced by the heavy consumption of pharmaceuticals. Not that I didn't partake, but never to the extent of those around me. (I was a cheap date then.)

That said, to be working at a studio I had admired from afar (Bonnie Raitt's GIVE IT UP album) as well as being a Todd Rundgren and "Big Pink" fan, it was otherwise heaven. It was only the B room then, A was just a shell and Turtle Creek was a rehearsal space that was being used by Eddy Offord, who had just finished recording David Sancious and his band "Tone."

Immediately after B-ville, I went to work for Offord who was by then working out of Levon Helm's house (the one that burned down). I recorded Jack Dejohnette there.

So, what did happen to all the B-ville properties?
