Frank Zappa defends The Monkees, 1967

“They sound better than most San Francisco bands. They’re excellent in the bag that they’re in.”

Thanks Joseph of the fabulous website, The Monkees Head, for sending this to me.

Ike and Tina Turner at the opening of their recording studio Bolic Sound in Inglewood, California, 1972.

The studio name derived from Tina’s maiden name, Bullock. Ike had two sixteen track studios built, a large one to rent out and a smaller one for his personal recordings. He fitted them out with state-of-the-art equipment, two 24-input 16-output mixing desks custom built by John Stephens and Daniel Flickinger, IBM mix memorizers, an early Eventide digital delay. The studios were opened for public hire in March 1972. Artists who recorded there included Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Duane Allman, Little Richard and Gayle McCormick. Frank Zappa recorded the Ruben and the Jets album For Real! as well as most of his own Over-Nite Sensation and Apostrophe (’) lps in 1973 and 1974. Ike & Tina’s hit, “Nutbush City Limits” was also recorded there.
