Ronnie Lane's Mobile Studio
Lane acquired the studio in 1972. It was one of the first ever mobile recording studios, and consisted of a 16 track studio housed in a 26' Airstream trailer, with a Helios mixing console, Studer and Revox tape machines, and Tannoy monitoring. The studio was built by audio engineer Ron Nevison.
After he left The Faces in 1973, Lane based the studio on his farm, Fishpool, in the hamlet of Hyssington, near Churchstoke, in Powys, Wales. There he used the studio to record his first solo album Anymore for Anymore (1974). He also used the studio to record One for the Road (1976), and an image of the mobile recording studio is featured on the album cover.
