NASHVILLE CITY LIMITS
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. (Liner notes by Joe Krein)
