Historic Detroit recording studio opens for tours

DETROIT (AP) — A historic Detroit recording studio is reopening after a successful sneak peak.
The
United Sound Systems Recording Studio is holding a grand opening event
Feb. 8 with guided tours of the landmark facility in the city’s Midtown
neighborhood.
The opening follows an open house last month in
which George Clinton and colleagues in Parliament and Funkadelic shared
memories of recording there.
The studio is where Berry Gordy cut a
record that would lead the way to the Motown dynasty. In addition to
Clinton and his cohorts, Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis and the Red Hot
Chili Peppers laid down tracks at the studio.
Tours will take
place on Fridays and Saturdays, and admission is $10 for adults and $8
for children and seniors. The studio is open and available by
appointment.
