A & R Recording
A & R Recording is an independent recording studio that was established in 1958 by Phil Ramone and his business partner Jack Arnold[disambiguation needed]. It was originally located at 112 West 48th Street, then operating simultaneously at 322 West 48th Street and 799 7th Avenue (which was formerly occupied by Columbia Recording Studio), both in Manhattan, New York. Both locations were operational together, in the late 60's, early 70's. Years later, the partnership consisted of Brooks Arthur (owning half), and Ramone, Don Frey, and Arthur Downs Ward (owning the other half).
