Default Record Plant (Inside)

I don't know whether this is just too far afield, and if the moderators see fit to remove the thread I fully understand.

That said, here's some video footage recorded inside the Record Plant shortly before it closed.

It's my late friend John Chelew recording a Peter Rowan album there (Dharma Blues).

Footage includes the control room and the kitchen (where he and Peter are working out the arrangement to one of the songs).

I was in the US on business in January this year and stopped in San Francisco for a few days on the way home. I ventured across to the Record Plant (on a bike across the Golden Gate!) just to take some photos. It is looking pretty ordinary on the outside. You can see my push bike out front of the main photo. The door photo is at the front of the building. I found an entrance to a day spa down the left side and thought I would go in say hello. I explained to the beautiful woman behind the counter I had rode across the Golden Gate, and was visiting from Australia, and she had no hesitation in showing me around! You can see her entrance foyer with the large guitar. From memory the small and un-renovated kitchen is off to the left we see in the video. Directly behind the guitar is a hall of mirrors - dark and very strange...
There is a small bathroom in original condition - see the photo and take note of the cigarette burn marks on the counter (the lady told me whom they might have made them but I can't remember). You can just see a shower curtain off to the left (wonder what went on there?) and above the toilet is a picture that looks very similar to something some of you may know...wonder if it was there in the 70's?
The photo with the blue walls and lamp in the corner is the original vocal isolation room.
The larger rooms show a recording studio with control room behind glass. The woman showed me some small cellar doors in the floor and thought there was something underneath. The building has been sub leased to a variety of business's - I'm guessing the day spa takes up about half the building. The control room access was not part of her lease so couldn't see that. It was an incredible day for me.
