Arabella high-rise building, where the studio was located in the basement

Musicland Studios was a recording studio located in Munich, Germany. It was established by Italian record producer, songwriter and performer Giorgio Moroder in the late 1960s.[1] The studio was situated in the basement of the Arabella High-Rise Building.[2] The facility closed down at the beginning of the 1990s, as the nearby U4 subway was affecting the recording quality.[3] It was also home to a Helios console that was favored by many recording engineers of that era.

The Musicland Studios was used extensively throughout the 1970s and the 1980s by many artists, including Led Zeppelin,[1] Queen,[1] The Rolling Stones,[1] the Electric Light Orchestra,[1] The Three Degrees, Iron Maiden, Marc Bolan & T.Rex,[1] Donna Summer,[1][3] Deep Purple,[1] Rainbow, Amanda Lear, Freddie Mercury,[1] Sweet and Elton John. Most of them recorded under the supervision of Musicland's engineer and producer Reinhold Mack.
