The great producer Terry Manning took this photo of American in 1968. He has given me permission to post it here -- thanks much Terry! I am hoping Terry will share his remembrances about his days recording in Memphis in the 60s and 70s. Here's his discography -- wow!
The studio in those days was 'incognito' (by design) -- note that there is no signage as there is in later photos of American.
