The times I would walk into my local record shops in late 50's, early 60's and see that "plum coloured label of CAPITAL " on the racks , it was only two singers FRANK SINATRA & DEAN MARTIN ,no GENE VINCENT , JOHNNY OTIS not even WANDA JACKSON ! Round records , square record shop owners , no wonder Capital never had many other hits in this country if all record shops did the same ! Here now are 75 polished gems so good I can play them to my Mother and she's 94 ,the Sinatra's the Martin's and the Damone's and not forgetting KAY STARR and PEGGY LEE , were all in the record collection at on 78's at home . A perfect buy for the older folks , go on spoil them , at my age , a mere 68 I have to admit I enjoyed this collection , packed with music history from the middle of the road music , to the early days of rock'n'roll , country and western and the birth of surf . More classic's from the attic to enjoy and give" air play " to . Another good buy from Amazon

Foolin' Around

GEMS FROM THE CAPITOL UK VAULTS
1960 - 1962 has

75 original recordings spread over 3 Cds.

These sets really are a steal at this price.
But the Capitol label is very special because it had so many well known artists of the like of Frank Sinatra, Nat `King' Cole, Dean Martin and Peggy Lee.
All were really well known and so the label was practically guaranteed to be a big success from the word `go' in 1942.

Why are these releases so reasonably priced?

The simple reason that these sets are as cheap as chips is that the tracks are public domain.

That means the rights to the music has gone and any old Dick or Harry can release them.

The bad news for the previous rights holders means good news for us, the buyers for if the price is too high we will not buy.
So the sets are at a more than reasonable price.
Next year the law changes to fall in line with the Americans and the 50 year rule will be finished.

Some tracks and artists you will know, really well - others not. The Piltdown Men for example?

But that is the real joy- you just might discover some tracks you have never heard and enjoy if not then the FF feature is just for you.

However if you are like me and of a certain age you want to read which artists and tracks are featured but Amazon have scrunched up all the tracks making it hard to read so I've spaced them out so you can read them more easily.

This revised list should help?

Capitol Records was formed in 1942 in LA and was the first label to be based on the US West Coast. Signing the likes of Nat 'King' Cole, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin and crucially, Frank Sinatra, they hit the ground running.

Foolin' Around, DAY3CD049

This is another label retrospective collection from the independent label One day Music. Collectors will be familiar with both the format and quality of these 3 CD sets and it is this group who will no doubt enjoy the music for its ability to turn back the clocks. In browsing the titles and the artists there are many still well known singers to be heard but for some reason I always like to find out about the ones that I do not remember. Capitol was a class label and if you were signed to it then you were thought to be good in your field.

So what did I find out about whom? Well, the Jack Scott track CD1/7 comes from the album Jack Scott-Burning Bridges, on Capitol ST2035, released in 1964.

Faron Young's March 1961 release "Hello Walls" CD1/16 became a massive hit reaching number one in the country charts and number 12 in the pop charts and introduced its songwriter Willie Nelson to a national audience. The record spent 23 weeks in the charts.

Ferlin Husky was a country singer who played guitar and worked under a couple of other names.
As Simon Crum, he signed a separate contract with Capitol Records and began releasing records, the biggest of which was 1959's "Country Music is Here to Stay" (number two for three weeks). On CD1/23 you can hear him sing "Enormity in Motion". Husky was one of the first country singers to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of fame (for recording) at 6675 Hollywood Blvd.

Tommy Sands was with the Capitol label from 1957 to 1960 and combined a pop singer career with that of a film actor and television star. CD2/8 has him singing "Love in a goldfish bowl".

Excelent value for money, and a great reminder of the tunes of yesterday, There were some duplication with my current music collection but that is a small price to pay for the additional ones.
