Battery Studio London

Morgan Studios, also known as Morgan Sound Studios, were recording studios at 169–171 High Road, Willesden in north-west London, originally owned by Barry Morgan (1944–2007), drummer for Blue Mink, CCS and other bands.

The studios, which had both a Steinway piano and a Hammond organ, were notable as the venue for recordings by some of the most notable British bands of the 1960s and 1970s, such as Ten Years After, Arrows, Yes, the Kinks, Donovan, Vivian Stanshall, Paul Simon, Lou Reed, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Greenslade, Joan Armatrading, Cat Stevens, Paul McCartney, Jethro Tull, Rod Stewart, Black Sabbath, UFO and the Cure. Parts of Alice Cooper's number one album Billion Dollar Babies were recorded here in 1972. The studios were also notable for having the first 24-track tape machine in England, made by Ampex.

Morgan eventually expanded the facility to comprise four different recording studios. Studios 3 and 4 were sold to Zomba in 1980, and rechristened Battery Studios, and studios 1 and 2 were sold to Robin Millar in 1984 and renamed Power Plant Studios.

Their former premises are now occupied by Miloco Studios.
