One of the final recordings he engineered at Decca before departing to Wessex Studios in November 1969 was the multi-million selling "Reflections of My Life" by The Marmalade.

Price helped build AIR studios Oxford Street, where he spent many years. During that time he engineered some of the major albums of the 1970s and 1980s including the Sex Pistols' Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, and mixed Nilsson's Without You.

He was the chief engineer/manager at Wessex Studios, the London studio where the Clash and the Sex Pistols recorded much of their work.

More recently he has worked again with Mick Jones in his band Carbon/Silicon and mixed The Veils' albums Nux Vomica and Time Stays, We Go.
