RCA Studios, Chicago

RCA Studios, Chicago

Profile:
American recording studio, also known as the Mid-America Recording Center. There were Studio 1, 2 and 3.

RCA's Chicago studios had at least two different locations in its history. The first, from circa 1935 through April 1969, was at 445 North Lake Shore Drive in the Navy Pier section; then after that, they moved to a new location at 1 North Wacker Drive in the Loop. Among the most famous of the Chicago studio's client labels was Motown; also, The Guess Who recorded some of their most famous hits, notably the double-sided "American Woman" / "No Sugar Tonight," there.

The staff of RCA Chicago's mastering division included Randy Kling; after that studio closed, he later relocated to their Nashville studios and even later, ran his own mastering studio.

RCA closed its Chicago studios on April 26, 1972. A few months later, the facilities were taken over by Curtom Studios.
