It feels good to be back at square one. Eccentric Soul: The Capsoul Label was a great place to start for a groundling label seeking to establish itself in 2004’s music marketplace, and it has continued to be a reference point for the Numero Group. So where better to turn for #51 than to the place where it all started?
Eccentric Soul: Capitol City Soul cobbles together released and unreleased moments from Bill Moss’s top-ranking rhythm and blues foundry. Old friends (the Four Mints, Kool Blues) and new pals (Jupiter’s Release, Love Maximum) unite for a proper send-off. The CD/2xLP has already garnered some pleasant reviews and should be popping up in the New Release section of the planet’s forward-thinking record retailers. To give you a sample of the scrap-floor delicacies that await you, we’re offering a free download of the compilation’s final track, a preemptively faded Impressions cover that is a perfect metaphor for a label whose potential was never fully realized.
