|NASHVILLE CITY LIMITS NOT LIMITED TO STUDIO B
August 21, 2016 - Rockwell Records / Elvis Express Radio
|A New release from the UK based Rockwell Records is the vinyl album "Nashville City Limits". This set is limited to 200 copies in Ruby-Red Vinyl.
The NASHVILLE CITY LIMITS album is dedicated Elvis' historic music recorded at RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tennessee.
The press-release uses the albums liner notes which are written by our very own Joe Krein
Few rooms in the music world have seen as much history as RCA’s Studio B in Nashville. Steve Sholes, RCA’s head of Country recording since the late 1940s, had signed Elvis
Presley to the label in November 1955. Elvis’ success helped Sholes and guitarist-producer Chet Atkins to convince their bosses that RCA needed its own studio in Nashville.
Studio B opened in November 1957. Soon thereafter, Sholes and Atkins, along with Owen Bradley and a few other Nashville producers, responded to the rock & roll insurgence by
beginning to make records in a smoother, more pop-influenced style, often employing string and horn sections and background singers – not to mention an A-list of core musicians.
This so-called Nashville Sound resulted in many crossover hits and helped establish Nashville as one of the nation’s premier recording cities.
Oopps: Looks like the albums producer could have done with some extra advise from us here at E.E.R when it came down to the song line-up. The first 3 songs on side A were
NOT recorded in Studio B. Oh and track 3 on side 2 is called "The Girl Next Door Went A‘Walking" - Hey Rockwell, remember Lee & Joe are here to assist in making sure
these silly cock-ups don't happen.
