Capitol Of The World Series 10000-10099

capitolrecords_logo

Let’s go back to the mid 1950’s, a time in the United States when economy rises very quickly and many American dreams came true. Except for modern housing, cozy furniture, TV and Hi-Fi Stereo, many people couldn’t wait to visit foreign locations for their holidays and travels. The exotic feel was stimulated through magazines, books and also records. You could easily began dreaming here with the music on your stereo and the album sleeve right there in your hands. A honeymoon in Rome, Paris or Rio De Janeiro came closer when long distance flights became more accessible for customers with money. With their suitcases, photo- and filmcamera’s they went to the other side of the world and finally at home they showed the pictures as kind of proof and in some cases the films they made. The soundtracks for their adventures were already in the shops! Capitol Records saw a new market coming up. Previously world music was only available via Smithsonian Folkways and some other small labels. Latin music was already there, but music from Europe, Africa and Asia was scarcer. So the sales department of Capitol, a very rich company in those days, decided to launch a new series: Capitol Of The World. Each volume was made with great care, the music was authentic, the sleeve design was often great and very colorful. Look at the ‘Honeymoon In Mexico’ sleeve with a nice duotone picture, the nice scenery of ‘Carnavalitos De Argentina’ and ‘Cairo – The Music Of Modern Egypt’, the great feel of ‘Slow Boat To Capri’ or the modern feel of ‘Argentina Today’… all sleeves have that special authentic touch with nice illustrations as well on the back of the sleeves and of course music to dream away. At least 500 volumes were put on the market between 1957 and the mid-sixties. The amount of copies they sold were not very big, but in their lust for exotica Americans liked them a lot. Each volume shows the location were the recordings were made: ‘Recorded in London’, ‘Recorded in West Germany’, ‘Recorded in Italy’, etc. Also the liner notes were interesting to read and gave information about what you were listening to.
