Cameron Crowe adores recording ‘Almost Famous’ cast album

NEW YORK (AP) — Cameron Crowe believes the spirit of a place lingers long after the moment has passed. That’s what makes recording the Broadway “Almost Famous” cast album at New York’s iconic Power Station studio so special for him. Some of the most prominent rock and pop albums were recorded at the legendary studio, including Bruce Springsteen’s “The River,” David Bowie’s “Scary Monsters” and “Tattoo You” by The Rolling Stones. More than another project, “Almost Famous” was a deeply personal coming-of-age-story for Crowe when he wrote and directed the 2000 film, loosely based on his experiences as a teenage music journalist. Now it’s a Broadway show and an upcoming album.
