Personal reminisce[edit]

This was part of the section Management Changes, added by Special:Contributions/71.195.165.42. It was partially in the first person and didn't have references. I found references as far as possible, and rewrote, but I thought this section might be of interest and subject for further research, so I'm moving it here.--Larrybob (talk) 19:19, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

The Sausalito studio has been managed separately from the Los Angeles studio since 1980, after it was sold to Laurie Anne Necochea. Laurie was in a wheel chair for the duration of her life due to a horrible radiation mishap. She enjoyed helping Rick James record "Street Songs". He was broke and she gave him free studio time. Her favorite thing in the world was to travel with Three Dog Night around the country. I, (Susan O'Donnell), would take her wherever they were playing; Tahoe, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Minnesota. She loved the business and loved being a part of the music industry. The studio business then became "The Plant Studios" or simply, "The Plant." After her passing, the Plant was sold by the Necochea Trust to Stanley Jacox in 1984.

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved. Seems uncontroversial. Previous cut-and-paste move by an anon (now in overwritten history) counts as a second vote IMO, so we have strong consensus. Andrewa (talk) 01:11, 11 June 2011 (UTC)



Record Plant StudiosRecord Plant – Move requested per Wikipedia:Article titles#Common names. The common name of the three studios is "Record Plant", not "Record Plant Studios". In a Google Book search, "Record Plant" gets about 7k hits, while "Record Plant Studio" (singular) and "Record Plant Studios" together get less than 500, and some of those are in the form "Record Plant's studios", reinforcing the preference for the shorter name.

This page should not have been moved - how can we recreate the original page that was created for "The Plant Studios" -- the business entity that operated a recording studio in the same building that used to house The Record Plant? The common name of the studios WAS Record Plant - in LA, NY and Sausalito. After 1981, The Record Plant ceased to exist in Sausalito, as the studio was no longer managed by the Record Plant business. Therefore, the information about the Sausalito studio AFTER 1981 should be continued on a separate page, as it WAS a separate entity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SausHistorian (talkcontribs) 04:55, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

I disagree with the suggestion that a separate page is needed. From 1981, The Plant operated much as before, bringing in clients who knew the famous history from before. The same recording rooms that had hosted Sly Stone now hosted Rick James—the vibe of the earlier musicians was omnipresent. Even after 1981, The Plant was commonly referred to as the Record Plant Sausalito by the press and by individual writers. Its story is tightly bound with the story of Kellgren and Stone; the story of the earlier studio. Binksternet (talk) 05:02, 1 July 2011 (UTC)
