The Rebirth of the Electric Lady Studio

New York’s Electric Lady Studio became famous in late 60s and early 70s as it hosted luminaries like Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, and Stevie Wonder. Its fortunes sagged until the turn of the millennium when hip-hop legends Questlove, D’Angelo, Common, and Erykah Badu (among others) poured their heart and soul into revitalizing the place while also creating some of the era’s defining music.
