FOUNDERS LAUNCH INTERACTIVE WEBSITE

Fifty years ago, Gold Star Studios was the place to be — an independent, rock 'n' roll studio in a sea of label-owned labs. Today, you can revisit the birth of the modern recording studio at www.goldstarrecordingstudios.com, launched last month by Gold Star founders David S. Gold and Stan Ross.

The Website includes Gold's and Ross' illustrated biography of the studio — The Gold Star Album — and a musical adaptation that, as of press time, was in negotiations with an unnamed Hollywood production company. The site will also host a feature where Gold and Ross will respond to users' questions.

“The art of recording over the past half-century has evolved from a simple data storage and retrieval system to a recognized art form,” said Gold. “We were fortunate to be present at the dawning of that revolution, and now through our Website, we want to enable others to recognize their potential as recording artists.”

Founded in 1950 by Gold and Ross at Santa Monica Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, it is well-known as the home of Phil Spector's famous “Wall of Sound,” which showcased the studio's custom-designed recording technology and echo chambers, as well as numerous groundbreaking and award-winning recordings.
