    Trident Studios

    Trident Studios was a British recording facility, originally located at 17 St. Anne's Court in London's Soho district. It was constructed in 1967 by Norman Sheffield a drummer of former 1960's group The Hunters and his Brother Barry. The first major hit recorded at Trident was "My Name's Jack" by Manfred Mann in March 1968, which launched its reputation. One of the many famous albums recorded at Trident was Lou Reed's Transformer, produced by David Bowie, who in turn recorded many albums there including The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust. Rick Wakeman was the in-house session keyboard player at the time and can be heard on many recordings, including the classics "Life on Mars?" and "Changes". The Sheffield brothers' had a relaxed working attitude but also emphasized high standards of audio engineering. The studio's state-of-the-art recording equipment encouraged many artists to record there. In other studios, such as EMI/Abbey Road Studios, the engineers still did most things "by the book". In mid 1968 Trident Studios were among the first in the UK to use Dolby noise reduction, and employ an eight-track reel to reel recording deck. While Abbey Road still only used four-track,

    British Steel

    British Steel is the sixth album by the British heavy metal band Judas Priest, released on 14 April 1980. British Steel saw the band reprise the commercial sound they had established on Killing Machine however; this time, they abandoned many of the dark lyrical themes which had been prominent on their previous releases. British Steel was recorded at Tittenhurst Park, home of former Beatle Ringo Starr, after a false start at Startling Studios, a recording studio located on Tittenhurst's grounds. Digital sampling was not yet widely available at the time of recording, so the band used analog recording of smashing milk bottles to be included in "Breaking the Law", as well as various sounds in "Metal Gods" produced by billiard cues and trays of cutlery. It was released in the UK at a discount price of £3.99, with the advertisements in the music press bearing the legend "British Steal". Songs "Breaking the Law", "United", and "Living After Midnight" were released as singles. British Steel is the first Judas Priest album to feature drummer Dave Holland. It is also their first album on which all the songs were written by current members of the band: Rocka Rolla and Sad Wings of Destiny
