United Sound Studios, a classic space home to countless major recordings, now reopened and restored.

Ron Skinner of TQM Recording Co. visits a recently renovated Detroit recording studio that was almost lost to time. His goal: To faithfully recreate a seminal recording made there, using today’s technology and tools.

Before closing, the studio played host to countless artists from John Lee Hooker to Jackie Wilson, Bob Seger to MC5, The Rolling Stones to Aretha Franklin, Issac Hayes to Parliament-Funkadelic to Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was even used by Berry Gordy to record the very first Motown hits, before he built his own studio nearby.
