A Cultural Icon
Certain places evoke visceral reactions for music lovers, places like the Fillmore East, Woodstock, New Orleans, Radio City Music Hall, the Grand Ole Opry or Muscle Shoals, Alabama. These vaulted locations are embedded in our consciousness and culture. They are much more than mere musical cities, venues or studios; they are defining pieces of the world of music. Think about the lyrics of “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd and you will agree. How many other recording studios are called out in a timeless classic rock anthem?
