Making tracks at Motown Studio A

Aislinn and I wandered over today and ended up singing in studio A! OK so it’s the museum now and nobody was recording but still kind of cool. And it’s an attached garage! This was THE studio for Motown. Only one hit was not recorded there. Well it was recorded in the building but not in the studio... It was recorded in the bathroom! Got to get that “singing in the shower” Motown sound. The studio had a “futz room” (a Fantasy studios term) built in the attic with lots of hard surfaces and a speaker and microphone. Can we say low tech reverb.

It was a LOT of fun walking around.
