DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit City Council is looking into whether a recording studio where Berry Gordy cut a record that led the way to the Motown music dynasty meets the criteria for historic designation.

Councilman Scott Benson says the council on Tuesday will refer the United Sound Systems Recording Studio matter to a historic designation advisory board for study.

The building where United Sound Systems is housed was made into a studio in 1933. It is in the city’s Midtown neighborhood and held a grand opening last month with guided tours. An open house was held in December.

Aretha Franklin, George Clinton and his colleagues in Parliament and Funkadelic, and Miles Davis were some of the major artists who recorded at the studio.
