Renaissance – Prologue (1972) Capitol Records/SMAS-11116 – 1st US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Label: Capitol Records/SMAS-11116 | Released: 1972 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
All change
A slightly misleading title for this album, as it was actually the third release under the Renaissance name. In fairness though, the line up completely changed prior to the release of this album, which saw Annie Haslam take on vocal duties for the first time.
Ethos – Ardour (1976) Capitol Records/ST 11498 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Ethos – Ardour
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Capitol Records/ST 11498 | Released: 1976 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
A rather forgotten band from USA,this quintet hailed from Fort Wayne at the state of Indiana.ETHOS got lucky to be signed by Capitol Records and soon they moved to New York in order to record their first album.By the end of 1975 the work was almost ready and the eight arrangements of ”Ardour” were all written by the leader of the band,vocalist/mandolin player/guitarist Will Sharpe.
Sweet – Level Headed (1977) Capitol Records/SN-16117 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Sweet – Level Headed
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Mastered At Capitol Mastering By Ken Perry
Label: Capitol Records/SN-16117 | Released: 1977 | This Issue: 1978 | Genre: Progressive-Rock

Sweet struggled to earn credibility as album artists and/or score hits after finally wresting themselves free of songwriting/production team Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman in the summer of 1974. They turned out a few albums before achieving both goals with Level Headed. The album gave them their final Top Ten hit with the dreamy “Love Is Like Oxygen,” a single that suggested that its accompanying record was a trippy mainstream pop record. Instead, it was one part of an ambitious sonic mosaic where Sweet tried a little bit of everything, cloaking it all in a neo-prog aesthetic.

The Edge: David Axelrod At Capitol Records 1966-1970 is a 2005 compilation album by producer/conductor David Axelrod. Released by Capitol Jazz, The Edge looks at part of his own discography while showing his contributions when he was the A&R for Capitol's Black music division by bringing in Lou Rawls, Letta Mbulu and others. His blend of orchestral jazz soul would become a sampling tool for countless hip-hop songs in the 1990's when producers dabbled in his output.
Grand Funk Railroad – Survival (1971) Capitol Records/SW-764 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Grand Funk Railroad – Survival
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Capitol Records/SW-764 | Released: 1971 | Genre: Hard-Progressive

By the time Grand Funk Railroad came to make Survival in January 1971, Cleveland Recording had moved to new quarters, and the group had become a national phenomenon, its last two albums Top Ten million-sellers.
Fetchin Bones – Bad Pumpkin (1986) Capitol Records/1A 064-24 0655 1 – EU DMM Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Fetchin Bones – Bad Pumpkin
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
DMM Direct Metal Mastering
Label: Capitol Records/1A 064-24 0655 1 | Released: 1986 | Genre: Southern-Pop

Like the sublimely seedy roadside joints of America’s rural South — where you can shoot pool, buy fishing worms and have your lawnmower repaired all in the same room — Fetchin Bones are dedicated to the sort of unexpected variety that somehow seems to work. On their debut album, the North Carolina quintet peddles an exciting mix of revved-up rock, country twang, folk, blues and swing, driving it all home with unrestrained energy and unpolished charm. The crazed quaver in singer Hope Nicholls’ voice provides the heart of the Bones’ sound; three songs without her lead vocals are the album’s weakest cuts. Producer Don Dixon admirably translates the group’s wild-eyed persona to vinyl, but this is a band that must be seen live for a full grasp of their eclectic frenzy. Delightfully different graduates of the R.E.M.-inspired school of Southern pop. (The CD and cassette add three tracks.)
Grand Funk ‎- Phoenix (1972) Capitol Records/SMAS 11099 - Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Grand Funk ‎- Phoenix
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900mb
Mastered At Sterling Sound
Label: Capitol Records/SMAS 11099 | Release: 1972 | Genre: Hard-Rock

Having scored four consecutive Top Ten albums in the previous two years, Grand Funk Railroad may not have seemed to casual observers like a band who needed to rise phoenix-like from the ashes, but the title of the band's seventh album referred to its re-emergence after a litigious split from manager/producer Terry Knight.
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band ‎- Night Moves (1976) Capitol Records/ST-11557 - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band ‎- Night Moves
Label: Capitol Records/ST-11557 | Released: 1976 | Genre: Classic-Rock
Mastered By Wally Traugott
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

Featuring "Mainstreet" and… "Night Moves"
Bob Seger recorded the bulk of Night Moves before Live Bullet brought him his first genuine success, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that it's similar in spirit to the introspective Beautiful Loser, even if it rocks harder and longer.
Jimi Hendrix - Band Of Gypsys (1970) Capitol Records/STAO-472 - US Pressing - LP In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Jimi Hendrix - Band Of Gypsys
Label: Capitol Records/STAO-472 | Released: 1970 | This Issue: 1977 | Genre: Classic Rock
Mastered By Capitol
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz

This is the album that Hendrix "owed" Capitol for releasing him over to Reprise Records and significantly, it isn't a studio effort, as his Reprise albums have been. Which is not to imply that it is any better than those Experience albums. The context of the album is vital — Band of Gypsys was one of Hendrix' 1969 amalgamations consisting of Buddy Miles on drums and Billy Cox on bass, among others. They hadn't been together very long when this session was recorded live at the Fillmore East, New Year's Eve 1969/70, and the music shows it.
