Sunset Sound Celebrates 60 Years As Hollywood’s Legendary Recording Studio
Tutti Camarata opened Sunset Sound Recorders in 1960.
Camarata produced recordings for Disney classics like “Bambi”, “Mary Poppins” and “101 Dalmatians”.
Although the studio was intended for Disney music, it was still owned by Camarata.
Legendary artists like Prince, The Doors, The Beach Boys and Janis Joplin as well as contemporary stars such as Rage Against the Machine, Maroon 5 and Sheryl Crow have all recorded there.
“If the walls could talk, it would be overwhelming,” said Paul Camarata, president of Sunset Studio.
Paul Camarata, the son of Tutti Camarata, took over as owner in the 70s. He continued the historic moments that happened in this studio.
According to Drew Dempsey, Marketing Director of Sunset Sound Recorders, Janis Joplin was at that studio the day she died. And he said it was the last recording studio the Beatles were in together.
“It’s just so special to me, our fans and the bands that come through here,” Dempsey said.
