The recording studio in Sausalito you are thinking of was the "Record Plant". It was just north of the downtown area in the flatlands near the houseboats and close to where the Army Corps of Engineers had the model of the SF Bay. In a non-descript building it turned out a lot of great albums. Typical california marin country wood inside, some nice fabic designs on the walls also. Done in earth tones. It had two recording studios, a great game room, and offices for the studio.
The only picture I have is a closeup of me with Ruth and Anita Pointer in one of the control rooms. It's not a good shot of the place but the background gives you an idea of the 'feel'.
Can someone explain how I can post it here (it is in my computer in a file)...or email me and i will send it to you.
