What is the recording location, studio place, and year of the beautiful song "That's What Friends Are For"?

  • I assume you're specifically asking about the Dionne Warwick ("Dionne & Friends") version, not the original by Rod Stewart?

It was recorded in 1985 at Conway Studios in Hollywood.

According to Dionne Warwick's autobiography:

One day in 1985, I ran into Elton John at the supermarket in Los Angeles the day before the ["That's What Friends Are For"] recording session.1

The recording session for "That's What Friends are For" was done at Conway Recording Studios in Hollywood.2
