BMG Records

Former Location –
Previously the home of RCA Records from April 21, 1964 through January 1977, it was also the west coast home of the German music conglomerate BMG for a while. The recording studios downstairs are where the Rolling Stones recorded many of their early hits including “19th Nervous Breakdown” and their album “Aftermath“.

The Jefferson Airplane recorded “Surrealistic Pillow” here and The Grateful Dead recorded their debut album “The Grateful Dead” here in 1967.

Headquarters“, the third studio album by the Monkees, was also recorded here in 1967.

RCA moved to this location from their previous building at 1510 Vine Street where it stood since March, 1959.
