[Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.]
More today from Ashley Hutchings’ notes in the insert which came with the expanded CD, where he is discussing the BBC studios where the recordings were made:
“The daddy of them all was Maida Vale. It was the biggest but was nevertheless quite a low building. This perhaps contributed to its elusiveness. No matter how many times you visited it you found it hard to locate the next time you had a session camouflaged as it was amid the identical mesh of roads within those tall, elegant Edwardian houses that are so prevalent in Maida Vale. How incongruous it must have looked unloading our van of its contents outside this majestic building.”
More next time.
