Visit with the folks at Compass Records in their historic Music Row offices, the former home of Glaser Brothers Productions (AKA \\’Hillbilly Central\\’.) See the place where the \\\"Outlaw\\\" movement in Country music was born and legendary albums such as Waylon Jennings\\’ Dreaming my Dreams, John Hartford\\’s Aereo-Plain, and Kinky Friedman\\’s Sold American were recorded, and where WANTED!

Run your hand over Waylon\\’s knife marks in the back wall, have a drink on Willie\\’s smokin\\’ porch, soak in Tompall\\’s vibe and speak to the ghosts of the studio\\’s heyday (if you\\’re lucky!).
