Legendary recording studio Sunset Sound Recorders turns 60

HOLLYWOOD (KABC) – Tutti Camarata opened Sunset Sound Recorders in 1960. It started as a music creation studio for the Walt Disney Company.

Once up and running, Camarata produced recordings for Disney classics such as “Bambi”, “Mary Poppins” and “101 Dalmatians”.

Although the studio was for Disney music, it still belonged to Camarata.

Legendary artists like Prince, The Beach Boys, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones and Van Halen have all recorded there.

“If the walls could speak, it would be quite overwhelming,” said Sunset Studio President Paul Camarata.

Paul Camarata, Tutti Camarata’s son, took over the owner in the 1970s. He continued the historic moments that happened in this studio.

According to Drew Dempsey, Marketing Director of Sunset Sound Recorders, Janis Joplin was in this studio on the day of her death. And he said it was the last recording studio the Beatles ever put together.

“It’s just so special to me and our fans and the bands that come here,” Dempsey said.

To commemorate 60 years and 50 years of some legendary albums, they are teaming up with the Morrison Hotel Gallery to create an upcoming virtual concert in October.
