Paramount Recording Studios was built in the late 1960’s by the Brolin family. Encouraged by his brother, the well-known actor James Brolin, Brian Brolin opened the studio after gaining some renown of his own from his recording work with his former classmate Ritchie Valens.
In the 70’s, Brian engineered for Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, and individually with each of the Beatles. Motown had moved west around that time and so legends like Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, and Marvin Gaye graced the halls. The Jackson 5 recorded ABC 1, 2, 3 at Paramount. Sly and the Family Stone, Frank Zappa, and Johnny Guitar Watson each recorded multiple gold and platinum records at the facility.
