A FINE MESS....these photographs provided by Paul G. Fien show the remains of the scorched and flooded Fine Studio basement. Somewhere in there lurk the amazing IVBidden "Sick and Lonely" and "Girl Be On Your Way" masters, among others...

check out the master tapes in the foreground, and the boxes of Fine Records stock in the dim background

bags contain master tapes and Fine Records stock

no sign of a mixing desk...in a studio with only two channels, who needs one after all?

notice the charred ceiling and "basement walls"...

more master tapes...easy listening, lounge,
c&w...perhaps 5 crazed versions of the young Invictas unheard masterpiece, "Watusi"?

Vince's 78's record collection, many scorched Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Sinatra discs. Oh, and the 700 studio acetates...
