Thomas Street History

Rhino Records' Guide To Memphis

See the blurb about American in the 'Ghost Hunting' section -- here's a quote:

Ghost hunting: American Recording Studio 827 Thomas St. (at Chelsea). The only Memphis studio which truly ever rivaled Stax or Sun for importance, American—founded by Memphis music legend "Chips" Moman—attracted Wilson Pickett, the Box Tops, Dusty Springfield, Neil Diamond, and yes, Elvis, who made some of his best post-Sun music here.

This link provides an excellent all-around guide to Memphis' music-related sites.
