This is definitely worth checking out if you are in the area or going to Graceland.The parking is a little tricky.You have to go down the side alley behind the building to park, which is free.
Our tour guide Jake was very enthusiastic throughout a lot more, so than at Graceland, which is self guided.He asked us to write a review on trip advisor.Well, Jake we did!
The tour lasts about an hour.Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis all recorded here early in their careers.You get to go upstairs first where they house some really neat things in glass cases, like the actual recording equipment used to record there, instruments, and memorabilia to name a few things.Our tour guide Jake gave us a history on the place, and played snippets of some songs recorded there.
Next, you go down stairs, and get to see the actual recording room, that is still in use today.It is full of instruments, which is why they ask you to not bring young children under 5 with you.The only thing you get to touch is a microphone at the end of the tour, which is pretty cool in it's own right.
So definitely check this out if you're in the area.We even had some English, Australian and either French or Portuguese with us, I couldn't quite place the accent.People really do come all over the world to see the most famous recording studio in the world.
