The Ultimate Experience

7018 West Warren, Detroit

I now find that the most rewarding experience of all is to visit the sites where it all happened.

Driving through the streets of Detroit, with some sixties soul in the tape machine, is something else!

You could also visit Honest?John's (sic) on Field Street and listen to Edwin Starr's 'Back street', Linda Griner's 'My smile is just a frown' or The Isley Brothers 'Got to have you back'. 

Ok, the juke box takes compact discs these days but who cares? The locals turn their heads and you get the chance to tell them about that old studio up on West Davison. They then tell you that the guy in the corner worked for Magic City on Grand River, and your day is made!

This is Harry Dhesi from Glasgow examining the site of the McCoy Recording Company on West Warren.

Sadly, the building was long gone.
