Stan Ross, R. I. P.

Los Angeles Times: "Stan Ross, who co-founded Hollywood’s Gold Star Recording Studio, where producer Phil Spector perfected the innovative “Wall of Sound” technique, has died. He was 82.
[. . . .]
More than 100 Top 40 hits were recorded at Gold Star, including such Spector-produced records as “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” by the Righteous Brothers and “Be My Baby' by the Ronettes.

Other hits recorded at the modest building at Santa Monica Boulevard and Vine Street included Ritchie Valens' “La Bamba,” Eddie Cochran's “Summertime Blues” and Iron Butterfly’s “Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida.” The Beach Boys also recorded most of their records there."
