The studio of Joe Meek was situated at 304 Holloway Road, London, above a leather goods shop owned by Mrs & Mrs Shenton. It was reached through a door on the street, then up a flight of stairs, Ist floor was the office and lounge, 2nd floor was the studio control room and bathroom, and finally on the 3rd floor were the bedrooms.
The studio was the size of a ordinary room, the control room was a small room beside it. In the studio was an organ and upright piano. The control room contained all Joe's recording equipement, with wires everywhere, plus many boxes of recording tape, scattered over the floor, and in piles.
If additional musicians were used, these were found on the stairs, in the bathroom, and where else Joe could fit them in.
From this incredible setting, came some of the most advanced recordings ever heard in the early '60s, and was the stepping stone for many young hopefuls seeking the road to fame.
In these humble surroundings, Dannys Passion laid down the tracks that today remain in the infamous Tea Chests, Recordings that may have catapulted them into the charts, and put Cornwall on the music map.
