Fifty records later, The Numero Group returns to its eccentric roots, Ohio's Capitol City and the sonorous Shangri-La carved out by the indefatigable Bill Moss. Filling in, around, and on top of our original The Capsoul Label collection, Capitol City Soul is a trove of completely unissued and underissued treasures from Moss and company. A decade in the making, this is the set of soul discoveries that no one but The Numero Group could achieve. Features otherwise unreleased songs from the Kool Blues, the Four Mints, Jupiter's Release, and Love Maximum, alongside rare sides by Dean Francis & the Soul Rockers, the Chandlers, Associated Press, the Soul Partners, and the Vondors. From the vaults under the basements under the garages of one of the nation's most unsung music scenes.åÊ
The CD version boasts an in-depth history of Columbus soul music, linking with The Capsoul Label, with the Prix Lable and Norman Whiteside's Wee project (recently sampled by Kanye West). A strong addition to the already epic Eccentric Soul series from The Numero Group.åÊwith a colorful spread of vivid archival imagery accumulated over a decade of research into the Columbus, Ohio culture.with a colorful spread of vivid archival imagery accumulated over a decade of research into the Columbus, Ohio culture.
