A&R Recording was a major independent studio recording company founded by Jack Arnold and producer Phil Ramone in 1958. A&R's equipment, most of it custom-built, was largely on wheels to facilitate movement from one studio to the next. The floors were made of a hard-looking but soft-feeling combination of concrete and vermiculite. Burt Bacharach called the studio his recording home through much of the 1960s (where he produced Dionne Warwick, among others). From the 1970s there were four studios, two studios in each building, two in 7th Avenue (called A-1 and A2) and two in 48th Avenue (called R-1 and R-2; R-1 was Phil Ramone's room, he did most of his work there). One room at each location had a Neve and one room at each location had an Mci 500. A&R closed in 1989.
