Sunset Sound Factory
Sunset Sound Factory (also known as The Sound Factory) is a recording studio in Los Angeles, California.
The Sound Factory opened in 1962 on Selma Avenue in Hollywood, California. At the time, it served as the home of Moonglow Records and the Moonglow Recording Studio. In 1969, former RCA recording engineer and Warner/Reprise producer, David Hassinger purchased the Moonglow Records/Studio building and renamed it The Sound Factory. The studio became one of the most popular recording studios in Hollywood, which led its owner to open a second Sound Factory studio in West Hollywood. The West Hollywood studio was eventually closed.
In November 1981, Sunset Sound Recorders owners Paul and Tutti Camarata purchased the famous studio.
The Sound Factory has been used by many top music artists including Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Ringo Starr, Dolly Parton, Oingo Boingo, Brian Wilson, The Jackson 5, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Keziah Jones, LostProphets, Jinx Titanic, The Vines, and Harry Chapin.
