This was the former location of Elektra Sound Recorders Studio.
The Doors recorded the albums Morrison Hotel and The Soft Parade here.
From May 11-25, 1970, the Stooges recorded the tracks for Fun House here. The first day consisted of sound checking and run-throughs of the songs prepared. The entire band used headphones with the bass and drums isolated by baffles while Iggy Pop sang his vocals through a condensor microphone on a boom.
The band hated the way it sounded, stripped the studio of its attire, gave Iggy a hand-held microphone, and put the guitar and bass amps by each other to create a sound similar to their live shows.
The studio is still a recording facility and is now named Discovery Studios.
