Ramport Studios

Ramport Studios was a recording studio on Thessaly Road, Battersea, south London, owned by The Who.[1] Several major albums were recorded at Ramport, including the 1974 album Crime of the Century by Supertramp and 1976's Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy. Judas Priest also recorded their album Sin After Sin during 1976–1977. The 1973 album Quadrophenia was recorded there. Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers spent much of the summer of 1977 recording and mixing the album L.A.M.F. there for The Who's label Track Records. Joan Jett recorded several tracks there which would end up on her Joan Jett album, later renamed Bad Reputation. In 1974, Neil Young recorded the song "White Line" there together with Robbie Robertson, which was released on the album Homegrown in 2020.[2]

Eventually, Virgin Records acquired it. It is now used as a doctor's surgery.[1]
