Most of the folks here are aware of the closing of the legendary Studio Davout in Paris.
Just a reminder about film composers who worked here : Delerue, Legrand, Demarsan, Jarre, Portal, Barry, Rombi, Desplat, Cosma and so on...
Now the studios are gone, destroyed (...)
French Abbey Road Studios are no longer. Thanks to politics I won't comment here.

please check :

What's your favorite score recorded at Studios Davout ?

Mine is MOONRAKER, of course...

Hopefully, the studio didn't have a trove of tapes stored there, which got thrown in the trash, as happened with Olympic Studios in London when they closed.

It has been closed for the past how many years? I think either Knock or maybe some Rombi were among the last scores actually recorded there...

2017. A Rombi score, I guess you're right.

It's a studio with a lot of prestige and history.

I do remember reading, though, they every so often you'd have to stop a recording and do a re-take because of how close the studio was to a train line.

Is that accurate?

Tube line is not far. John Barry commented his experience and challenge of scoring Moonraker there. Nevertheless a great recording facility, now gone. John Barry came back a few years later for The Legend of Lone Ranger, if I am not mistaken
