In 1958, Glyn left Sutton High
School in Surrey, England, surrounded by music. Some of his friends
and school-mates had formed The Presidents rock band whilst others,
like Dick Morrissey, who sadly died in November 2000, ventured
into the world of jazz. After securing a job at IBC studios he
was able to bring The Presidents in at weekends and evenings to
hone his recording skills.
Recording The Presidents was his first
solo production endeavour. The music, by today's standards, was
basic at the beginning but, with the band doing gigs and constantly
improving, Glyn developed his skills and saw that rock
production was the way he wanted to go. Glyn and the band were
all hungry to improve and being on such friendly terms with all
the members he was able to suggest improvements and direct the
sessions to get exciting and satisfying results.
In the late 1950's and early 60's IBC studios
were in the business of recording a wide range of sound, from
classics to comedy. Who knows what direction Glyn would have taken
if it hadn't been for The Presidents.
