Ocean Way Recording started in the early 70s in a garage. Allen Sides bought the old gear from the United Western Studios and installed his studio. By 1976 his lease was cancelled, because some musicians were too loud when leaving the facility at night. So Allen leased Studio B at United Western Studios. In the early 80s he also took over the Studio A and in 1985 he bought the United Western Studios and renamed it to Ocean Way Recording. In 1988 the Record One, Los Angeles studio at Sherman Oaks was added to the studio family. In 1997 Ocean Way Nashville followed as the next studio in the family.
In 1999, the original Ocean Way/Western Recorders facility at 6000 Sunset Blvd. was sold to Cello Studios, and Sides retained the building next door at 6050 Sunset Blvd.
