"Recording Studio of Elvis and other greats" Sun Studios Tip by Toughluck
Sun Studios, Memphis: 19 reviews and 42 photos
It's a great little diner like town diners in the 50's. Prior to the 'Arnolds' drive-in diners. This is just a place to get a sandwich and to sign-up for the tours. Lots of CD's from the 50's and 60's - mostly Memphis stars and their early music. The studio is actually two rooms next door, but the tour includes a museum (upstairs) with an introduction to the founder of the studio and his intent in life. It's a great tour, animated and full of stories.
The studio is included, with time to look around and trivia, about who recorded here. The room has not changed since the days when Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee, Roy Orbison recorded here. Included are great Jazz and Blues musicians, BB King, Howlin'Wolf, and Ike Turner.
Address: 706 Union Ave
Directions: Considered downtown, but I'd call it more like the near eastside. About two miles (3.2 km) from downtown, right out Union Street.
