75 Years of Capitol Records Hardcover – 12 Dec 2016 by Reuel Golden (Author, Editor), Barney Hoskyns (Author)
'An unmissable milestone for music lovers, this photo history celebrates 75 years of the legendary Capitol Records'
To commemorate this extraordinary history of recorded music, TASCHEN presents this official account of Capitol Records, from its founding year of 1942 to today. With a foreword by Beck, essays by cultural historians and music and architecture critics, as well as hundreds of images from Capitol’s extensive archives, we follow the label’s evolution and the making of some of the greatest music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Through pop, rock, country, classical, soul, and jazz, the photographic and musical history includes the label’s most successful, cool, hip, and creative stars, as well as the one-hit wonders who had their all-too-brief moments in the spotlight.
