Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 4CDs ... $78.99
Although she's best-remembered for her early work with the Maddox Brothers, we also really love Rose Maddox on her own – and she's a hell of a singer on these solo sides for Capitol Records! The huge package includes some great bluegrass work, and some duets with Buck Owens too. CD

Piltdown Men/Ernie Fields/Earl PalmerPiltdown Men Ride Again – The Capitol Instrumentals With Ernie Fields & His Orchestra & Earl Palmer ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The complete recordings of The Piltdown Men – collected here with a host of other excellent instrumentals from early 60s Capitol Records! The first half of the set features tracks from the short run of The Piltdown Men – a studio-based instrumental project headed by young arrangers Lincoln Mayoga and Ed Cobb – with a lineup that featured top LA talents like Bob Bain and Tommy Tedesco on guitars, plus some honking sax from Scott Gordon – all on a host of songs that have a very strong caveman theme in the title! Yet the overall approach is more rock instrumental – kind of halfway between R&B honkers of the late 50s, and the surf sounds to come (and in fact, you could make an argument that this material prefaces that trend in a great way) – on titles that include "Piltdown Rides Again", "McDonald's Cave", "Goodnight Mrs Flintstone, "Big Lizzard", "Flint Stomp", and "Brontosaurus Stomp". CD then moves onto include 9 more instrumentals from Ernie Fields – an artist who'd already recorded previously on the world of the LA R&B scene in the 50s – and who brings a jazzy vibe to cuts that include "Adam's Rib", "Leap Frog", "Green Green", "Birmingham Jail", and "I'll Cry Instead". Last up are three tracks from the mighty drummer Earl Palmer – "Drum Village (parts 1 & 2)" and "Swingin Drums". CD

VariousEccentric Soul – Capitol City Soul ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
The Numero Group takes a great step backwards – returning to the capital city of Ohio, Columbus – to mine the same soul and funk treasure trove of their Capsoul collection! The music here comes from the same scene – and often from Capsoul or related labels – and the set offers up a stunning array of rare gems, many of which were never even pressed on record – all showing Columbus to be one of the funkiest, grooviest cities in the US during the early 70s! Lots of the work here has that same heavy groove that we love from the Capsoul collection – and since that initial Numero foray into the compilation business, the label has only become more skilled at unearthing and presenting great sounds like this. The package features notes on both the music and the project of researching it – plus a long appendix on the local labels featured, along with photos and label scans too! Titles include "Woe Is Me" by Kool Blues, "I Need Your Love" by Chandlers, "Funky Disposition" by Dean Francis & Soul Rockers, "Lose The One You Love" by Soul Partners, "Look In The Mirror" by Vondors, "Hysteria" by Four Mints, "This Is The Way That I Am" by La Fez, "When He's Gone" by Associated Press, "Excuse Me Miss" by Jupiter's Release, and "I've Been Trying" by Love Maximum.

Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Early 60s. Used 3CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very cool package that contains all of the sides the tenor sax giant King Curtis recorded for Capitol Records! The package is wonderful – 3CDs, wrapped up in a nice big box, with a huge booklet that has notes on the work, great photos, and full details of the sessions. King's tenor was heard on countless soul and R&B records at the time – but these are the sides that really have him blowing strongly on his own – records cut after his initial singles for the Enjoy label, a host of different types of material, all given a deep soulful twist! Titles include "Good Times", "The Prance", "You Send Me", "Watermelon Man", "More Soul", "Soul Serenade", "Turn Em On", "Beach Party", "Tumbling Tumbleweeds", "Do The Monkey", "New Dance", "Summer Dream", "Raunchy", "Wagon Wheels", "Java", "Tanya", "Hung Over", "Girl From Ipanema", "Sister Sadie", and lots lots more! Plus, most of these titles have never been reissued before – and certainly not in a package this nice! CD
(Box has some light wear, and inner tray holding CD cases is cracked on the edge – but overall this is still in nice shape.)

A great set of early modern bop material – 37 tracks that bring together the complete Blue Note recordings of Tadd Dameron and Fats Navarro – about half of them featuring Navarro in Dameron's group, the other half featuring Fats on his own, working with Bud Powell, Howard McGhee, and Benny Goodman. The set includes a few alternate takes, and titles include "Stealin Apples", "Focus", "John's Delight", "The Squirrel", "The Chase", "Our Delight", "The Skunk", "Double Talk", "Boperation", and "Wail".

✨✧ Louis Prima, Keely Smith, Sam ButeraCapitol Recordings (8CD set) ... CD
Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 8CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
All of Prima's sides for Capitol from the late 50s and early 60s, plus wife and colleague Keely Smith and band leader Sam Butera's solo work from the era in an incredible 8 CD box! We often think of Louis as kinda of a loungey, Vegas cool cat, but what is so awesome about the material you'll find here is how furiously manic so much of it is. The first 3 discs document Prima at his wild, hard-swinging studio best – and could give Tito Puente a run for his money in the sweaty big-beat department! Tracks include "Buona Sera", "Just A Gigolo/I A'int Got Nobody ", "Jump, Jive, And Wail", "The Closer To The Bone", "Pennies From Heaven", "Pump Song", "Fee Fio Foo", "Lazy River", "I've Got You Under My Skin", and tons more. Discs 4 covers live sets at the Harrah's Club and the Sahara, and includes "On The Sunny Side Of The Street", "A Foggy Day", "Robin Hood", "Judy", and "Greenback Dollar Bill". Discs 5 & 6 cover Keely's sweeter but nearly as great sides, with Nelson Riddle and others, and tracks include "I Wish You Love", "It's Magic", and "Nothing In Common" and "How Are Ya' Fixed For Love?" with Frank Sinatra. Finally, Sam Butera's solo work is collected on the last 2 discs, returning things to Prima-style rockin' jazz, and including "Bim Bam", "Twinkle In Your Eye", "Bugs", "Tennessee Waltz", "Better Twist Now Baby", and "I'll Feel Good All Over". Great stuff from one of the tightest working units from the era, and a real treat to have in one place! CD

✨✧ Buck OwensComplete Capitol Singles – 1957 to 1966 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Buck Owens ruled country music in the 60s – especially on the west coast – and these seminal singles for Capitol Records are a great demonstration of his talent at its height! Buck was a hell of a talent right from the start – sharp, soulful, and graced with a good sense of wit and strong intelligence – all of which ably guided both his performance and choice of material – which is especially perfect when it comes to his 45s! And while most of Owens' albums from this time have been reissued on CD, this is the first set to really look at the special world of his singles – which includes a lot of numbers that never made the full-length sets. The package features a whopping 56 tracks on 2CDs, complete with a and b-sides of all the singles – including a few duets with Rose Maddox. Titles include "I Know What It Means", "Over & Over Again", "Sweethearts In Heaven", "Cryin Time", "Waitin In Your Welfare Line", "Heart Of Glass", "No More Me & You", "The Way That I Love You", "House Down The Block", "King OF Fools", "I Can't Stop My Lovin You", "Second Fiddle", "Walk The Floor", "We're The Talk Of The Town", "My Heart Skips A Beat", "Together Again", "Don't Let Her Know", "No One But You", "Til These Dreams Come True", "High As The Mountains", and "Loose Talk".

Capitol, Late 50s/1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lot more brash and bold than you might guess from the title – not just sleepy seduction music, but a batch of really dynamic tunes that will really push the limits of your hi-fi! Most numbers here are instrumental, although some of them have some occasional vocal refrains in the mix – and most have rhythms that are slinky and seductive – never too over the top, but filled with jazzy flourishes and some compelling instrumental moments – so much so that you'll be fine in your pad on your own, even without a girl! Titles include "Like Young" by Dave Pell, "Playboy's Penthouse" by Cy Coleman, "Shangri La" by Spike Jones, "A Shot In The Dark" by Jimmie Haskell, "Melancholy Sounds" by King Curtis, "Night Train" by Alvin Rey, "The Beast" by Milt Buckner, "Cool" by Lou Busch, "Sexe" by Line Renaud, "Caravan" by John Buzon Trio, "Spring Sprang Sprung" by Jack Fascinato, and "Theme From Our Man Flint" by Elliot Fischer.

Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio SextetCannonball's Bossa Nova ... CD
Capitol/Riverside, 1962. Used ... $3.99
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. It's here now, though, and the record's a real treat – especially at this price! Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". Plus, the CD also features bonus single versions of "Corcovado" and "Clouds"! CD

BangBang ... CD
Capitol/Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99
Heavy rock from this tripped-out trio – a Miami combo that really jams it up with some fuzzed-out lead guitar, snapping drums, and heavy bass! The sound is lean, but at times there's a Bowie-like quality to the vocals – plus the same sort of heavy energy of The Man Who Sold The World album – with the guitar getting all fuzzy and powerful, but never in an overindulgent way! Drums are super-strong too – almost giving the set a rock funk vibe at times – but the main showcase is clearly on the guitar from Frank Glicken and lead vocals from Frank Ferrara – two Franks who should have been huge. Titles include "Future Shock", "Questions", "Come With Me", "The Queen", "Redman", and "Our Home". CD

Gary BartzLove Affair ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99
A wicked set from the great Gary Bartz – one done after his mid 70s association with Larry Mizell – but still very much in a similar groove! The album's a great blend of Gary's soulful alto work with sweet electric backings – often put together with that angular stepping mode he used on some of his gentler funky numbers – and blended with a few mellower moments that live up to the title of the record, and really let Bartz stretch out on soulful solos. There's plenty of nice keyboards on the set, but Nate Morgan also brings in a slightly righteous vibe at times too – and titles include "Shake Your Body", "Love Affair", "At Last", and a remake of "Giant Steps", done in a pretty great way that has it sounding like a sweet 70s modal groover. CD

Gary BartzMusic Is My Sanctuary ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
A fantastic bit of jazz funk fusion – and one of the landmark 70s albums produced by Larry Mizell! This is Gary Bartz's second (and most amazing) collaboration with Larry Mizell – a studio genius who could focus on the best talent of a jazz artist, then expand it using additional keyboards, percussion, and often a sweet bank of chorus vocals to give the tracks an extra soulful sound! By the time of this album, Larry had already worked to great fame with Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey, and Johnny Hammond – and the record has him turning his talents towards Gary Bartz to unlock a whole hidden side of soulful expression that would never be matched again! The title cut – "Music Is My Sanctuary" – is a jazz fusion classic in anyone's book, and it features characteristic Mizell keyboards alongside Gary's soulful sax, augmented by a deep vocal chorus that's simply fantastic. Other highlights include "Carnaval De L'Esprit" and "Macaroni" – and the whole album's nice! CD

Beach BoysPet Sounds – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD set – mono/stereo/live/instrumental) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Great 2CD version – features the full mono and stereo mixes of the album – plus a 13 track instrumental album, and 11 previously-unreleased live recordings of tracks from the album from the late 60s through the early 80s.

Beach BoysSurfer Girl/Shut Down Vol 2 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, Early 60s. Used ... $5.99
2 early ones from The Beach Boys – records that show them growing a lot, musically and emotionally, and also showing a bit of the strain to fill so many albums with quality material. This 27 track set features some real gems – like the original and German versions of "In My Room", the obscure "Surfer Moon", and the incredibly haunting "Warmth Of The Sun", one of the first real moments of genius from Brian Wilson. Other titles include a few oddball numbers – like "Denny's Drums" and "Cassius Love vs Sonny Wilson" – plus classics like "Fun Fun Fun", "Don't Worry Baby", "Keep An Eye On Summer", "Our Car Club", "Little Deuce Coup", and "Surfer Girl".

Other nice ones include "Land Ahoy", "Cindy, Oh Cindy", "The Shift", "Chug A Lug", and "Heads You Win, Tails I Lose". Also includes "Surfin Safari", "County Fair", "409", "Surfin USA", "Miserlou", "Shut Down", and "Let's Go Trippin". CD

Peggi BluBlu Blowin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Expansion (UK), 1987. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet 80s soul from Peggi Blu – an artist who recorded this gem for Capitol Records with hardly any fanfare at the time, but who's gotten plenty of play from the set over the years! Peggi's got a style that's nicely unassuming – a voice that still has all the range and power of the bigger female soul stars of the time, but without being as pushy or overly diva-conscious – a quality that's helped the record to grow strongly in reputation over the years, as Peggi herself has continued to record other wonderful work too. Titles include "Over & Over", "Mesmerize Me", "All & All", "I Believe In You", "All the Way With You", "Two Can Play At That Game", and "Tender Moments". CD features bonus tracks – "Two Can Play At That Game (radio edit)", "All The Way With You (late night mix)", and "All the Way With You (day time mix)". CD

United Artists/Capitol, 1958. Used ... $6.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name – but you've gotta thank Benny for getting past that simple trick and keeping things real with an unobtrusive title and cover – and some extremely strong arrangements that cook nicely no matter what the tune! Titles include "Swingin In November", "Something For October", "August Moon", "March Wind", and "February Fiesta". CD

Betty CarterInside Betty Carter ... CD
Capitol/United Artists, 1964. Used ... $4.99
One of the best records ever cut by jazz vocalist Betty Carter! Why? Well, because the session's got a tight stripped-down feel – but not as stripped down as some of Carter's mellower records – and it's also one of the first to show her in the straight jazz setting that would become her dominant format in the 70's and 80's. Unfettered by larger studio arrangements, Carter's at her jazzy best, and brings a rich amount of emotion and imagination to her interpretations of tracks like "This Is Always", "Some Other Time", "Something Big", and "There Is No Greater Love". The set also includes a phenomenal original composition – the captivating "Open The Door", which is one of Carter's best songs – and it's also got 7 tracks that weren't on the original album! CD

June ChristyBallads For Night People (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, 1961. Used ... $4.99
Darkly beautiful work from singer June Christy – a lesser-remembered gem from the end of her years at Capitol Records! The mood here is very much in keeping with the "night people" setting of the title – a lonely space of empty streets, open windows, and late night saloons – first brought to record so beautifully by June on the Something Cool album, and wonderfully revisited in this fantastic set! Arrangements are by husband Bob Cooper, and although they're a bit less arch-modern than some of Christy's work with Pete Rugolo, they still really get at the boozy genius of June's vocals at their best. Titles include "I Had A Little Sorrow", "Night People", "Make Love To Me", "Shadow Woman", "My Ship", and "Kissing Bug". CD also features 5 bonus tracks from the Do Re Mi album – including "Make Someone Happy", "Asking For You", and "All You Need Is A Quarter". CD

Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... $2.99
One of June's all-time classics – and perhaps her most famous album, next to the sublime Something Cool. The set, like that one, was arranged and conducted by Pete Rugolo – whose icy and modern touches are the perfect foil for June's sad and dark voice. Familiar tunes are completely transformed by the pair's masterful handling – and titles include "The Wind", "There's No You", "For All We Know", "This Year's Kisses", "That's All", and "Maybe You'll Be There". CD features some bonus tracks too! CD

From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD
