A Tour of Memphis' Ardent Studios


Memphis: Ardent Studios - Home to Big Star, The Replacements, Isaac Hayes, and moreThis is a great look at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee may not be quite as famous as its neighbors Sun Studio or Stax Records, but it produced a number of famous records in its own right, including Issac Hayes' recorded Hot Buttered Soul, R.E.M.'s Green, the White Stripes' Get Behind Me Satan, and every album that Big Star ever made. Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, the Staples Singers, and M.I.A., have also recorded there. The "Pop Pilgrims" video series continues to deliver.
