Technology has made it possible for anyone to make an album in their bedroom on their phone. But for decades, artists had to rent time at a fully-equipped recording studio. Temples of Sound: Inside the Great Recording Studios tells the stories of some of those, well, temples of sound including:

  • Sunset Sound (LA)
  • Columbia Studios (New York)
  • Criteria Studios (Miami)
  • Stax (Memphis)
  • Motown (Detroit)
  • Sigma (Philadelphia)
  • RCA B (Nashville)
