This chapter describes events that occurred following the opening of the Starday Sound Studios in May 1960. The studio became one of the top four recording outlets in Nashville, alongside Owen Bradley’s Quonset Hut, RCA Victor, and Fred Foster studios. Despite having two talented house bands and a growing roster of top talent, there were still many challenges to be met in the Starday studios, including poor acoustics and equipment. An echo unit was later built to enhance recordings.
