Electric Lady Studios Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

Electric Lady Studios Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

Jimi Hendrix walked through the street-level door at 52 West 8th Street and turned it into an artist’s paradise. Electric Lady Studios was the guitarist's own state-of-the-art recording facility, and he had personally supervised many of its psychedelic details, like the mural of an elfin woman at the console of a spaceship. The studio where subsequent music legends like Stevie Wonder and Black Sabbath went to record was described by studio architect John Storyk as a dream for Hendrix.
