This picture is one of a series that were taken on the last day ( 1983 ) just after Maurice's recording date in studio B. He wanted to see the echo chamber that he pictured while lying in bed in England listening to records that came out of Gold Star. Since this was the last day we unlocked the chamber and he had the honor of being the first and last outsider to see it. This picture was taken facing the entrance. Rear of speaker is seen facing the front wall. It was necessary to remove four doors in order to gain entrance.
