The legend of a music label
75 years of Capitol Records

From the Beatles to Beck, Sinatra to Sam Smith, a parade of era-defining artists have passed through the doors of the Capitol Records Tower, one of Hollywood’s most distinctive landmarks and home to one of the world’s most defining labels for the past 75 years.

To commemorate this extraordinary history of recorded music, TASCHEN presents this official account of Capitol Records, from its founding year of 1942 through 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 sucessful, cool, hip, and creative stars, as well as the one-hit wonders who had their all-too-brief moments in the spotlight.

Along the way, we encounter the likes of Miles Davis, Nat King Cole, the Kingston Trio, and Frank Sinatra in Capitol’s first 20 years; the Beach Boys, the Band, and the Beatles in the 1960s; global rock magnets Pink Floyd, Wings, Steve Miller Band, Bob Seger, and Linda Ronstadt in the 1970s, and such contemporary stars as Coldplay, Katy Perry, and Sam Smith. An unmissable milestone for music lovers, 75 Years of Capitol Records is a live and kicking celebration of a mighty giant in the industry that created the soundtrack to generations past, present, and future.

Review:

75 Years of Capitol Records is an outsized, hard-backed, 492-page love song to one of the greats.” (Esquire, London)

“Capitol wasn't all Nat King Cole, Ol' Blue Eyes and the Rat Pack... As the record label celebrates 75 years of hits, a stunning new collection of pop portraits reminds us how it's always moved (and grooved) with the times.” (The Mail on Sunday, London)

“A 492-page ode to a musical milestone.” (Shortlist, London)

Anlässlich des 75. Geburtstages des Labels präsentiert TASCHEN diese offizielle Chronik der Capitol Records vom Gründungsjahr 1942 bis heute. Mit einem Vorwort von Beck und Essays fachkundiger Historiker und Musikexperten sowie Hunderten von Bildern aus den umfangreichen Firmenarchiven verfolgen wir die Entwicklung des Labels und die Entstehung einiger der größten Hits des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts. Durch Pop, Rock, Country, Klassik, Soul und Jazz hindurch umfasst die fotografische und musikalische Geschichte die erfolgreichsten, coolsten, hipsten und kreativsten Stars des Labels, aber auch die vielen 'one-hit wonders', die nur kurz im Rampenlicht standen und schnell wieder verschwanden. Wir begegnen Legenden wie Miles Davis, Nat King Cole, dem Kingston Trio und Frank Sinatra aus den ersten 20 Jahren von Capitol, den Beach Boys, der Band und den Beatles in den 1960er-Jahren, Pink Floyd, Wings, der Steve Miller Band, Bob Seger und Linda Ronstadt in den Siebzigern und auch aktuellen Stars wie Coldplay, Katy Perry und Sam Smith. 75 Years of Capitol Records ist ein Meilenstein, auf den kein Musikfan verzichten sollte, eine Hommage an ein legendäres Label, das für zahllose Generationen den Soundtrack ihres Lebens schuf.
