Like many buildings and structures on the this list, the recording studio compound on 6000/6050 Sunset Blvd. has seen many changes of names, and owners. Currently refurbished as United Recording Studios, offering a vintage recording experience to new acts, this is the historic venue where Frank Sinatra made his 60's-era Reprise recordings back when it was known by its iconic name: United Western Recorders. The building is also a California pop shrine: Brian Wilson crafted a lot of Pet Sounds and Smile between these walls, as recently (and amazingly) recreated for the film Love and Mercy.
