?? London’s Soho is a place to take the day easy and get ready to enjoy it: cool cafés, record shops, bookshops, antiques, squares, unmissable shopping and a lot of Rock history.

Just metres from Soho Square is an alley called St. Anne’s Court. At No. 17 was the site of Trident Studios, which operated from 1968 to 1981.

Despite The Beatles‘ familiarity and relationship with the EMI studios located in St. John’s Wood (later, thanks to them, called Abbey Road) the Fab 4 recorded several songs at Trident, as well as several of the artists they had signed to their Apple label (such as Mary Hopkin, Billy Preston or James Taylor).

The main reason was that the Soho studio, which opened in 1968, had an exceptional 8-channel recording console, as opposed to the 4-channel one EMI Abbey Road had at the time. In addition Trident, even then, had the Dolby noise reduction system.

One of the most wonderful Beatles songs, as well as being their biggest selling single worldwide, was Hey Jude. And it was recorded at Trident. Several takes of songs from the White Album and the Abbey Road Long Play were also recorded here: “Dear Prudence”, “Honey Pie”, “Savoy Truffle” “Martha My Dear” “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”.

Other artists who used Trident:

The Beatles as solo artists also made use of these studios: John Lennon with his The Plastic Ono Band recorded “Cold Turkey”, George Harrison recorded parts of his monumental triple album All Things Must Pass and Ringo Starr his hit single It Don’t Come Easy.

But David Bowie also recorded none other than his The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, which featured Rick Wakeman on keyboards. At the time, in the early 1970s, Rick was sort of Trident’s official pianist. Bowie also recorded Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane here.

Genesis recorded A Trick of the Tail and Wind And Wuthering in 1976 – those were the days when you could record two great albums in a year and still be successful – and the earlier Gabriel-era Nursery Crime and Trespass.

Queen recorded their first three albums and sections of their 4th LP, A Night at The Opera, at Trident as well as at, for example, Olympic Studios (see section).

Supertramp and their Crime of the Century. T. Rex and Electric Warrior, Jeff Beck Wired and Beck-Ola.

The Rolling Stones recorded parts of their Midnight Rambler for their album Let It Bleed.

Canadians Rush recorded their epic LP, Hemispheres, Judas Priest their Stained Class and Lou Reed, Transformer. Bob Geldof‘s Boomtown Rats, the famous I Don’t Like Mondays. Manfred Mann, his single My Name Is Jack.

Elton John recorded his second – and an eponymous – solo album in 1970, which included his first big hit: Your Song. The piano used on this song is the same one used for Hey Jude and belonged to Trident. Elton also recorded Tumbleweed Connection, 17-11-70, Honky Château, Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

At the time of writing (2015) the site is recognisable by the metal plaques at its entrance. It is still called Trident (Sound Studios) in honour of those years and recordings are made for TV, radio and multimedia.

?? El Soho Londinense es para tomarse el día con calma y prepararse para el placer: cafeterías cool, disquerías, librerías, antigüedades, plazas, sitios de compras imperdibles y mucha historia Rock.

Apenas a metros de Soho Square se encuentra una callejuela llamada St. Anne’s Court. En el nº 17 se hallaban los Trident Studios, los cuales funcionaron de 1968 a 1981.

A pesar de la familiaridad y relación de The Beatles con los estudios EMI ubicados en St. John’s Wood (más tarde y gracias a ellos, llamados Abbey Road) los Fab 4 grabaron varias canciones en Trident, así como varios de los artistas que habián firmado para su sello Apple (como Mary Hopkin, Billy Preston o James Taylor).

La razón fundamental era que el estudio de Soho, inaugurado en 1968, poseía una excepcional consola grabadora de 8 canales, a diferencia de la de 4 con la que contaba EMI Abbey Road entonces. Además Trident, ya en entonces, contaba con el sistema de reducción de ruido Dolby.

Una de las canciones Beatles más maravillosas, además de ser su single más vendido a nivel mundial, fue Hey Jude. Y fue grabada en Trident. Varias tomas de canciones del Álbum Blanco y del Long Play Abbey Road, también se registraron aquí: “Dear Prudence”, “Honey Pie”, “Savoy Truffle” “Martha My Dear” “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”.


Otros artistas que usaron Trident:

Los Beatles como solistas también hicieron uso de estos estudios: John Lennon con su The Plastic Ono Band grabó “Cold Turkey”, George Harrison grabó partes de su monumental disco triple All Things Must Pass y Ringo Starr su hit single It Don’t Come Easy.

Pero además, David Bowie grabó nada más y nada menos que su The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, que contó con Rick Wakeman en teclados. Por entonces, inicios de la década de los 70, Rick era una especie de pianista oficial de Trident. Bowie también registró aquí Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane.

Genesis grabó A Trick of the Tail y Wind And Wuthering en 1976 –eran épocas donde se podían grabar dos discos grandiosos en un año y seguir siendo exitosos– y los anteriores –de la era Gabriel– Nursery Crime y Trespass.

Queen grabó en Trident sus primeros tres discos y secciones de su 4to. LP, A Night at The Opera además de en, por ejemplo, Olympic Studios (ver apartado)

Supertramp y su Crime of the Century. T. Rex y Electric Warrior, Jeff Beck Wired y Beck-Ola.

The Rolling Stones grabaron partes de su Midnight Rambler para su disco Let It Bleed.

Los canadienses Rush registraron aquí su épico LP, Hemispheres, Judas Priest su Stained Class y Lou Reed, Transformer. The Boomtown Rats de Bob Geldof, la famosa I Don’t Like Mondays. Manfred Mann, su single My Name Is Jack.

Elton John grabó en 1970 su segundo –y homónimo– disco solista, el cual incluía su primer gran hit: Your Song. El piano empleado en esta canción es el mismo utilizado para Hey Jude y pertenecía a Trident. Elton también registró en este lugar Tumbleweed Connection, 17-11-70, Honky Château, Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only The Piano Player, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

Al momento de registrar estas líneas (2015) el sitio se reconoce por las plaquetas metálicas en su ingreso. Se sigue llamando Trident (Sound Studios) en honor a aquellos años y se hacen grabaciones para TV, radio y multimedia.
