What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Join the Teen Set

Capitol's cash cow in the '60's was, of course, The Beatles.  The rat pack crowd that put the label on the map had just jumped ship for Sinatra's Reprise label.    Capitol went after the teen market.   This here inner sleeve encourages you to join the 'Teen Set.'

Capitol had right of first refusal on UK EMI product.  They never did learn their lesson and passed on The Dave Clark Five and The Yardbirds.   The label was the sole major headquartered on the West Coast.  Their local curated roster consisted of Surf and Hot Rod music.
