1650Broadway

“As a child I had imagined, erroneously, that Tin Pan Alley was a physical alley next to the Brill Building. Both were symbols of music publishing in the twentieth century, which is probably why so many people think that my husband Gerry Goffin and I wrote in the Brill Building when we worked as songwriters for Aldon Music. But we didn’t. The Brill Building is at 1619 Broadway. The building that housed Aldon Music was 1650 Broadway.” – Carole King

This quote is from an excerpt from Carole King’s forthcoming memoir due later this year. 1650 Broadway was home to many Rock and Roll Joes during the 60s and we will do a further, in-depth exploration of all the activity there in several upcoming entries. Also coming in a month is a full CD with the original demo recordings made by Carole King in 1650 Broadway.

    I don’t get to New York very often–last time I was there I made a “pilgrimage” to the Brill Bldg.–next time I’ll visit 1650 Broadway. I remember that address from my days working in a music store in 1957-58. The Phonolog loose-leaf record catalog listed the addresses for the many record labels of that era, and quite a few were at 1650. One got a mental picture of a large old building with a lot of small record label office.
