Among the albums made in the Manhattan complex: Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A.," Rolling Stones' "Some Girls," Peter Gabriel's "So" and Duran Duran's "Seven and the Ragged Tiger."
New York City's Avatar Studios, also known as The Power Station, is going up for sale, sources with knowledge of the plans tell Billboard. The news is expected to be announced in the coming days.
A rep for the building says Avatar is not currently on the market.
The 33,000-square-foot midtown Manhattan complex of recording studios is where some of the most seminal albums of the 1970s and 1980s were made, including Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A., Rolling Stones' Some Girls, Peter Gabriel's So and Duran Duran's Seven and the Ragged Tiger. It's also where such noted engineers as Bob Clearmountain and Scott Litt got their start and where veterans Jimmy Iovine and Jellybean Benitez spent their formative production years.
