American Sound Studio was a famous recording studio located in Memphis at 827 Thomas Street. American Sound Studio was started in 1967 by producer Lincoln Wayne "Chips" Moman and Don Crews.
More than one hundred hit songs were recorded there between its founding 1967 and its closing in 1972. The building was later demolished and the spot was replaced by a beauty shop. The music for these hits was played by the house band "The Memphis Boys", also known as the "827 Thomas Street Band." Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Roy Hamilton, B.J Thomas, Petula Clark, The Box Tops, Neil Diamond, and Alex Chilton are just some who recorded at American Sound Studio.
In January 1969, Elvis record In the Ghetto, unusual in Elvis' repertoire for its social commentary on the cycle of crime and poverty, and Suspicious Minds, which became a centerpiece of his live Las Vegas performances that would begin that year. Indeed, four charting singles came from these sessions--Suspicious Minds, Don't Cry Daddy, In the Ghetto, and Kentucky Rain—as well as two critically acclaimed albums, From Elvis in Memphis and Back in Memphis were recorded over a 13 day span at American Sound Studio.
The new Musicians Hall Of Fame and Museum which will open sometime in 2013 is located in the historic Nashville Municipal Auditorium just off the James Robertson Parkway exit at 417 4th Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37219.
The approximately 200,000 square foot building houses the historic 10,000 seat Municipal Auditorium and the Museum will be located on the first floor of the building.
