Dick Lewzey is a British recording engineer and company director of CTS Studios in London. His work has included engineering on "A View to a Kill (That Fatal Kiss)" by John Barry, an instrumental co-written by Duran Duran.


Dick's earliest work includes recording of The Mission for Ennio Morricone, renowned as one of the composer’s best works. The Mission was recorded at CTS Studios in London, which saw the first recording of John Barry’s James Bond theme for Dr No. Dick started working at CTS as recording engineer during the company’s London Bayswater years. His work included sharing the engineering duties with John Richards, and recording numerous albums and film scores for many artists and composers – such as Julie Andrews, Henry Mancini and Maurice Jarre.

Following CTS's move during 1972 to a purpose-built Music Centre site in Wembley, London, Dick was the studios recording engineer and also company director with John Richards. They quickly re-established CTS in its new premises, with their notable credits encompassing scores for Pink Panther, the Superman movies, Murder on the Orient Express, and The Omen. Alongside the film scoring, rock also featured during this period, with The Who, Slade and Roy Wood among the many artists to record at the studios.
