Fifth Floor Recording Studios

Profile:
Recording studio in Cincinnati, Ohio, owned by Rich Goldman and Ellie Goldman. The facility was active since the early '70s, doing jingles and live broadcast over WEBN in Cincinnati, but it wasn't until the Ohio Players started recording there that the studio's business picked up. The Fifth Floor was equipped with a Sphere Eclips console and had MCI 24-track capability. In-house engineers Gary Platt and Robin Jenney were specialized in recording for the genres of Funk and Soul.
