McClear Place

McClear Place

Profile:
Recording and mastering studios in Toronto, Canada operating under this name from 1979 to 1990. Variants of the same facility include McClear Place Studios and McClear Place Studios Ltd..

Previously operated as RCA Studios, Toronto from 1954-1979 until the studio was purchased from RCA by Phil Sheridan and Bob Richards (6). Subsequently renamed as McClear Pathé from 1990-1999, and as McClear Digital Studios from 1999 to the present.

Records cut at this studio may be identified by MCP, Mcl, McL, McCl, McCLEAR, MW, or MCW in the runouts. For a short period (up until ca. 1982) etches normally associated with RCA Studios, Toronto continued to appear in runouts (TG, GT, TXG, TXD, TD, XT, ZDT, TX, DT, etc.).

Engineers associated with this facility include: Joe Webster (2) (indicated by JW etch in runout); Pete Norman; Hayward Parrott, Phil Sheridan, and Bob Richards (6).

The name stems from a block of land that was originally owned by bookseller Thomas McClear in 1875, resulting in the laneway beside the building being named after him.
