 Hitsville U.S.A. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Located at 2648 West Grand Blvd. in Detroit, Michigan, Hitsville U.S.A., formerly a photographers' studio, was purchased by Motown founder Berry Gordy in 1959, and converted into both the record label's administrative building and recording studio, which was open 22 hours a day (closing from 8 AM to 10 AM every morning for maintenance).
In the mid- 1960s, the property at 2644 West Grand became an annex to the Hitsville building, and the Golden World Studio was purchased as a secondary studio.
The Hitsville U.S.A. building is today the site of the Motown Historical Museum, dedicated to the legacy of the record label, its artists, and its music.

For those of you who don't know, Hitsville USA is the other name for the record corporation known as Motown.
I've been listening to a pretty steady diet of this collection called "Hitsville USA: The Singles, 1959-70".
This music in this collection came out of a studio that was in the middle of a converted house in a residential suburb of Detroit (much like Scarborough, for those Scarlemites reading this).

 Hitsville USA
I have assumed the title is "Hitsville USA" because that is the banner at the top of each left sided page.
The banner on the top of each right sided page is "Motown 1959- 1971" The booklet does not have an ISBN number and was published by the Motown Corporation itself.
In fact the cover is just a montage of Motown record sleeves.

 Archived Guestbook Entries!
I use to ride by the old Hitsville USA house.
In many moves, I threw away my diary of those days long past of all the great shows I attended at the Grande and Eastown and it was wonderful to relive the memories by cruising the band list.
I have an old photo of Jethro Tull 'practicing' in the empty ballroom, while we were loading our equipment in; Mick Abrams was still the guitar player for Tull and the "This Was" L.P. was brand new at the time.
