Electric Lady Studios Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

Electric Lady Studios Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, Electric Lady Studios opened its doors for business on August 27, 1970. 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.
