Picture of American Sound Studios

Here's a picture of American Sound Studios, which was located at 827 Thomas Street in Memphis, Tennessee. The building has been demolished, and there's a car lot there now (or so it's been said). This is where all that great music was recorded from the mid-sixties to the earlier seventies.

The building was actually at the intersection of Chelsea and Thomas streets. Thomas Boulevard was a truck bypass route and so truckers stopped at the light and then took off in low gear. As a result, obtaining a noise-free recording was sometimes a challenge!
