The founders of Hollywood's legendary Gold Star Recording Studios will pay a special tribute to the memory of the late Maurice Gibb by posting on their www.goldstarrecordingstudios.com Website the first of a series of historic, never-released photos featuring the late Bee Gee taken during Gold Star's final session before it closed in 1984.

According to owners David S. Gold and Stan Ross, Gibb was the first and only artist who ever received a tour of the studio's historic echo chambers that were the hallmark of Phil Spector's "Wall of Sound."

At the close of Gibb's final session in February 1984, Gibb "told me about he and his brothers lying in their beds in England, listening to some of Phil Spector's recordings and wondering how he got that sound," Gold said. "He also tried to imagine what the echo chambers might look like. Our hearts go out to Maurice's family, friends and fans. We hope unveiling these happy moments after all these years will provide some measure of comfort and help preserve the memory of a wonderful artist and human being."

The photo is the first in a series that will be featured in Gold and Ross' upcoming biography of the studio, The Gold Star Album, which will support an upcoming Broadway-style musical celebrating the studio.
